    Ephedrine vs. Pseudo-Ephedrine


    For me Pseudo-E is much easier to get my hands on. The question is where is the pharmacological diference between these two in terms of

    -fat loss / thermogenesis
    -strength / endurance
    -appetite suppression
    -stimulation

    How much more is Eph-HCl effective than Pseudo-E (mg per mg)?

    it is that much easier to get? they are both behind the counter in pharmacies, (the Claritan D is litterly right next to the bronkaid)


    I would be curious to know, but I dont think they are anywhere near as effective. I know even for allergies, it hardly works. (for what ever reason only Allergia D works for me, the more recent claritans do nothing..)

    i think it has been asked on here, but I know if you google it you will get some pretty indepth things. I read about it a few years ago and i want to say (dont hold me to it) while they are related they are no where near as effective for fat loss.


    depending on whats in stock (go Bayer and their delays in processing more) most places should have both pretty much all the time. and both require only an ID to buy (for tracking).

    yeh the nateral stuff is legal (ephedra) . that not even close to bronkaid/prim

    I got some 8mg Ephedrine HCL from a Canadian source, very cheap. Three of those feels much better than one Bronkaid in my opinion. The extra junk in the Bronkaid, even though it's not supposed to do anything, seems to increase the side effects.

    The canadian stuff I got is just 8mg Eph HCL, nothing else. Almost as cool as the old-school mini-thins, except you have to take 3.

    you guys can still get bronkaid? it's out of production and not sold here in Cali, along with primatine.

    It's not out of production. Bayer just ran behind.

    Primatene and Bronkaid MIST (The inhalers) have been pulled due to environmental regs.

    Email I received from the Bayer rep (Mfg of Bronkaid):

    Dear Mr . Brooks,

    Thank you for contacting Bayer HealthCare regarding your difficulty in locating
    Bronkaid®.

    We are pleased to let you know that store inventories will be replenished by the
    end of March.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

    In appreciation of your interest, we will be sending you a coupon booklet via
    U.S. Mail. You can expect to receive your coupons in the next 7-10 business
    days. If I may be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me.

    Sincerely,

    Brenda Stokes
    Consumer Advisor

    That being said, it is back on the shelves here again (NY). Once again, this wasn't a legal issue, but a supply issue. I know Rite-Aid was under the impression it was never coming back and quit requesting it; CVS kept requesting it and has it.

    Might vary in your area but don't be under the impression it's been banned again or taken from production.

    Walmart and Walgreens show it back in stock. Give it a couple weeks and it will be cheap on Amazon again.

    its definitely back - i picked some up last saturday at a place that was out for months. a few people said they hadnt seen it in months and (i guess just assumed) that it was out of production.. also found it interesting that someone outside of the pharamacies placed all the orders so asking the person at the desk wasnt much of help...

    Pseudoephedrine is Claritin-D (Google Pseudoephedrine/loratadine)


    Pseudoephedrine has some thermogenic effects but not much as ephedrine.


    I wouldn’t compare it. I have used many times Claritin-D with aspirin when I had a cold and I had some sweat but nothing compares with ephedrine.
    Pseudo-Ephedrine
    The prefix pseudo- (from Greek ψευδής "lying, false") is used to mark something as false, fraudulent, or pretending to be something it is not.

    It just happened that I had just decided to start doing an ECA stack as the stuff disappeared. My timing was horrible, so I ended up learning the situation quickly.

    Regardless, I'm sticking with the Canadian 8mg stuff for now. Much cheaper, no Guaifenisen, and you can moderate the dosage in 8mg increments. Oh, also HCL.

    Be careful: if you're importing that much at the same time into the US, it's illegal (it's a List I controlled precursor). You can only import ~7g/30 days according to the DEA. Anything more than that doesn't fall into their personal import exemption: hxxp://www+deadiversion.usdoj.gov/fed_regs/rules/2007/fr0710.htm

    Theophylline, also known as dimethylxanthine, is a methylxanthine drug used in therapy for respiratory diseases such as COPD and asthma and must be followed under a plumb/MD under a variety of brand names. Because of its numerous side-effects, the drug is now rarely administered for clinical use. As a member of the xanthine family, it bears structural and pharmacological similarity to caffeine.

    The main actions of theophylline involve:
    relaxing bronchial smooth muscle
    increasing heart muscle contractility and efficiency; as a positive inotropic
    increasing heart rate: positive chronotropic
    increasing blood pressure
    increasing renal blood flow
    some anti-inflammatory effects
    central nervous system stimulatory effect mainly on the medullary respiratory center.
