It is banned but I buy it about once a year at the convenience store.
I have to sign for it. I only take it occasionally when I need an extra energy boost.
24 pills last me approximately a year. If you are going through 100 a year or 8 a month you most likely are taking more than you should.
Ephedrine does N0T work as a contraceptive and should N0T be taken with ANY other medication. It was banned because it increases your heart rate to a potential heart attack and should never be taken on any regular basis
. It was banned after a basketball player died from taking it. He was one of many that have died from it. Daily consumption is asking for serious trouble. It should not be taken as straight ephedrine
, but only be taken as an ingredient in another pill but other pills (such as up your gas and stackers) had it removed when it got banned.
There are no warning labels on the container which is a problem since people have no idea of its potential dangers. Do not take if
you have heart problems, D0 N0T take with any other drugs, MAO inhibator,
Do not consume it with caffeine products (i.e. coffee, tea, cola, ) or other stimulants. Also, do not exercise after ingesting ephedrine and limit the amount taken. The combination of exercise and ephedrine can raise the heart rate and blood pressure to dangerously high levels (It can increase the heart rate to dangerous levels without exercise as well). Not for anybody under age.
D0 N0T take if pregnant or breast feeding. Ephedra Side Effects, Interactions and Warnings
