    Yeah, I figure that out but I wanted an OTC solution to alleviate the sinus congestion. Ephedra hcl looks like my best bet.

    I am going to take on cap a day (12.5mg) to start. I should be good to go.

    CVS here I come!


  2. iv been getting bad congestion as well, have to take afrin to go to sleep

  3. I've been using AlphaBurn for 1 1/2 weeks and am congested.

  4. AlphaBurn congested me as well. A decongestant nasal spray (afrin) cleared it right up, but you are not supposed to use afrin long term, so I stopped taking AlphaBurn.

  5. My wife hid all the Afrin so I bought some more and stashed the new Afrin where she cannot find it...

    Ephedrine hcl did not help with the nasal congestion but psuedoephdrine works wonders although the 12 hour dose only lasted 7 or 8 hours.

    I really like AB but if I keep taking it I will become addicted to Afrin for sleeping...not good.

    I found it under Raudixin. Interesting sides from the pure powder at 200-400mg per day.

    These are standardized for Reserpine...which is NOTHING LIKE Alpha-yohimbine.

    Reserpine used to be a drug, but it had so many side effects (mostly long term) as well as an minimal tolerance for overdose that it has fallen out of favor.

    Reserpine is purged from Alpha-Burn.

  10. I have been using Alpha Burn for a few weeks and my sinuses are swollen shut. I have used Afrin a few times which worked like majic but this has piqued my curiousity...

    Oxymetazoline (the active in Afrin) is an alpha-1 agonist and partial alpha-2 agonist and Alpha burn is an A2- antagonist. Wouldnt the use of one to counteract the sides of the other kind of be defeating the purpose?? Sort of like taking a Beta blocker with Clen ?

    I would think Afrin would act locally in the nasal passages while Alpha- Burn works systemically. You should be fine.
