    i stack this with caffeine for my weight loss program. it works wonder. Luckily, in my country there are a lot of non prescribed drugs containing ephedrine Hcl sold and the price is absurdly cheap.

    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.

    My doctor and family recommended this to me for my severe allergies and lack of endurance. It clears my stuffy and runny nose instantaneously and the long lasting extra energy makes this a great starter for those long summer days. 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!! Haven't taken any in 8 months and I have gained 10 lbs.!! I just wish it was easier to purchase!! It was my miracle drug. I could eat anything I wanted and never gain a pound!!!!
