After being diagnosed with Narcolepsy 25 years ago and initially treated with Ritalin I found EphedrineHCL in 25mg every 3-4 hours worked well to keep me alert. No shakes or other weirdness with it. Not available on Internet anymore due to the damn addicts, but my Dr. has ordered it thru my pharmacy.

It slightly hinders my ability to sleep, and I occasionally experience short dizzy spells, though only while directly under the drug's influence.

I have taken ephedrine hcl for 25 plus years. They say there is no miracle pill for weight loss and management, but for me it is ephedrine hcl and now it is getting very scarce to find!!

As with ANYTHING, moderation is the key. If you abuse this drug, OF COURSE it can have potentially negative effects. I started using this years ago when it was still legal, to lose weight and keep up with my long hours at work as a paramedic. I lost 45 lbs in a few months and I pretty much loved everything about it. I will tell you that the "negative" side effects I noticed were dry m ... Show Full Comment
