Ephedrine destroyed my life sooooooooooo bad!
Hey,
I've also had a whole TON of problems related to ephedrine use. I'm not addicted anymore, but I have a whole ton of health problems...I stopped taking ephedrine almost 4 yrs ago (august will be 4 yrs) and just this past november I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety and last week I was diagnosed the CFS. Man you gotta work hard, for doctors to think maybe something IS wrong.

I'm just commenting to say I'm also a DUMBASS, and to give you support in that you can get over this! I'm he

I've been taking an ECA stack followed by 2xEC daily for 6 months. A friend of mine has been taking it for years. Neither of us have any side effects thus far aside from looking and feeling great. Do your research on it because it is unlikely to be the cause of these problems you and others are experiencing.
