im confused why everyone is saying ephedrine is illegal everywhere because all i need to do is walk into a walgreens and show id at the counter (and i only initially purchased it because i was sick and couldnt breathe n it legit helped). its not banned in the usa at least, just limited bc ppl make meth with it. ive never heard of people taking psuedo instead of ephedrine though thats top tier misinformed lol how do people mess it up that bad. plus the way you get psuedo is the exact same isnt it? no form of this stuff is on the shelves. eca stacking makes you feel like shit though you grow tolerant to chugging all those pills and now i get legitimately nauseous anytime i go near a box of bronkaid lol

yeah ephedrine is literally legal in Canada u can even buy it online. i have not known for it to b completely illegal in uk. and I've also never heard of pseudoephedrine being taken instead. odd

im losing my mind

wow this is wild i started taking pseudoephedrine recently and have barely been eating bc of it. it's nuts how it's so non-regulated in Canada, at least where i live you can buy sudafed w pseudoephedrine off the shelf + buy straight-up ephedrine from the local vitamin store. damn. really changes your perspective

I have a box of Primatene I don’t want to waste, but I don’t want to continue using after the box is finished. Will 1 ec dosage a day, with 2 days off a week still cause this amount of damage to my body? How can I reduce harm so that I can use up this box and then never touch it again?

Omg thank you so much for this, it scares me so much because I used to abuse sudafed which has a little bit in it I think. More because overdosing on them would make me feel like a zombie than because I thought I'd lose weight - but I'm so thankful I never took it further.
Love you mpa, thanks for everything ♡

I’m a naughty nurse who’s used it on and off for years to curb my appetite on fasting days...

Not a promotion just my experience oh and I live in the uk and buy it really easy at the chemist with no questions asked 🤷🏽‍♀️

Do not take pseudoephedrine.


Take real ephedrine.
(Brands include Bronkaid and Primatene.)


Combined caffeine and ephedrine ingestion improves run times

I don't abuse Pseudoephedrine but I do take it the odd time to suppress my appetite and it works for that for me. As I said I don't go even close to the full dosage and only take it every so often.


I'll rethink it though

God I took this stuff when I was like 17-18 as an appetite suppressant and it landed me in the er twice. I'm glad someone is talking about it. Unless you're using the kind thats for asthma FOR asthma don't touch this stuff, you'll regret it.

Edit: I used primatine. And maybe I had a bad reaction but thats all I can go off.

Fat again. RIP

What's your take on Adderall and vyvanse? Are these safer options or just as bad?

honestly i’ve been using ephedrine from bronkaid (you can literally walk up to a pharmacy counter, show your ID, and purchase bronkaid which contains ephedrine in it no problem in the USA in a lot of states, some have it prescription only like Oregon) for a while daily off and on and i’ve experienced some heart irregularities but i still have been taking it lately. i care more about being thin right now than i do the consequences. but pseudoephedrine, i’ve taken that a few times too, that’s what they use to make meth but honestly regular ephedrine from bronkaid is better idk why anyone would use pseudo when you can use ephedrine that’s the one people specifically use for weight loss and boosting athletic performance, also ECA stacks, which i do as well. (ephedrine, caffeine, aspirin) i don’t recommend it but i do it.
