    ECA stack question


    Sorry I tried to search and couldn't find it so I guess I'll ask. I have the caffine and the asprin, but will the stack still work if the ephedrine is pseudoephedrine free?

    If you are saying what I think you are, the answer is No. Pseudoephidrine is different than ephedrine anyway, but what you have doesn't even have pseudoephedrine in it.

    Stims will raise your cortisol levels, so it wouldn't hurt any.

    Pseudoephedrine isn't as good as as ephedrine itself. I'd dose it at 60mg with 200mg caffeine.

    Good luck.

    Why don't you just buy ephedrine in bottles of 50? They're legal at 8mg as a "cold" medicine.

    Take 3 (24mg) + 200+mg caffeine + 325mg ASA. These were the old formulas for things liked Ripped Fuel and the original Hydroxycut and Xenedrine.

    It's still one of the best things out there. If you're crazy, stack with salbutamol (asthma pill/ inhaler.) You'll literally melt while you walk around the gym after even a brief warmup.

    I wouldn't advise stacking ECA w/ salbutamol though as it might be too much for some people, basically a poor man's clenbuterol. Remember to lug around a water jug...you're gonna need it.

    325mg Asprin is MUCH too much. Use a baby asprin. I think they are 82mg's.

    Pseudoephedrine won't do anything, if you're from the states get Bronkaid.

    It's not dangerous as long as you don't overdo it (Ie. every workout session...)

    I've heard some interesting things about ECY stacks (yohimbine instead of aspirin)

    some people loved it.

    Ephedrine is relatively easy to get, providing you know where to get it, it IS legal, but its regulated (meaning you cant order 100000 boxes of it-for fear of creating amphetamine or methamphetamine)

    I think 3.5 grams is the limit on how much you can possess.

    is 82mg's the generic dosing for Aspirin in the ECA Wolf? I've done the ECY, but I was considering an ECA run and maybe wean into the Y as my stim tolerance builds.

    Yea get the baby asprin. They are 82mg's and dissolve very easy. There is also the entric coated ones if asprin tears up your stomach.

    Gotta remember your taking it 2-3 times a day, and aspirin is a blood thinner. At 325mg's that can cause some real thinning and bad bruising, not to mention possible bleeding issues.

    Thanks, bud. I've taken the ECY before, and I normally go with 200mg caf, 25mg Ephed, 12 mg Yohimbine, but this time around I'll start with the baby asprine. Thanks again.

    I'm sorry I have to reply here. salbutamol in the US is just albuterol, used as an asthma medication (usually ~100mcg metered inhaled dosages), but some people get albuterol sulfate and dose it orally ranging from 12-36mg /day (24 is about average for a 200+lb person).

    It is NOT a poor mans clenbuterol, because it is more expensive from what i've seen! It also has a shorter half life (5-6hrs for albuterol vs. 36 hours for clenbuterol), so you don't experience all the negative side effects of clenbuterol as LONG with albuterol.

    No. It's too little an amount, and it's absorbed/metabolized differently than when orally dosing larger amounts.

    ~100mcg for 1 inhalation (.1g)
    ~4000mcg for 1mL oral dosing typically (4g)

    Most people typically dose 24g/day spaced out, which turns into 24,000mcg, or 240 metered inhalation dosages. But the dosing/pathways the drug works are different from inhaled vs. an orally ingested liquid.

    Albuterol does help open up your lungs. Do 3-5 puffs (at ~100mcg each dose) from your inhaler about 20 minutes before you work out, you'll notice a difference.

    you can buy lab albuterol , its a liquid form and it will help decrease body fat but usually only when ur bodyfat is already low. it will also help with endurance and lipid profile. usually i like to keep it around 12mgs daily, more give muscle cramps

    Synephrine (from bitter orange) can be used as a milder substitute for ephedrine, although it is definitely not as stimulating or effective for fat loss.

    Prolongs the effects. The dose is much lower than a pain relief application (82mgs)...

    Celc, good to see you again. Haven't crossed threads with you in a while. White willow bark is a good sub for aspirin. Same type of effects and synergy.

    Also think about adding a GLA source to your stack (evening primrose or borage oil) it prolongs the thermogenic and energetic effects of the ECA so there are not such sharp dropoffs in energy.
    as for the aspirin... i have heard it serves as a moderate uncoupler. It robs energy form the body in the form of heat so yes it also increases and prolongs the thermogenic effect.

    I had a hunch about prolonging the effect. But seriously fellas, 25 or 50mg has me wired for a good 8-12 hours. I'd never sleep if I tried to prolong the effect. I'm an admittedly very stim sensitive but absolutely love my ephedrine.

    IMO there is NOTHING that I've tried on the market that comes close to the energy intensity, clean mental acuity, and thermogenic effect as good ol ephedrine.

    FOG, I haven't been posting much. I read here frequently but tend to keep my opinions to myself lately.
