    What is a deadly dose of ephedrine?


    What is a deadly dose of ephedrine? How much would be effective for a 5'10 223 pound football player while cutting?

    Too many variables to give a definitive answer.
    Ephedrine can be lethal at the recommended dose if there are other health issues.

    I've never taken more than 75mg in a day, but I dont have a high tolerance for Stims so I dont want to push it.

    I dont take more than ~6mg 2x per day, and Im about your size. You dont need to feel all cracked out on the ephedrine rush for it to do its job. Im pretty sensitive to stimulants though.

    I'm the same as BV..5 mg two times per day for the first week then maybe 10 mgs 2x per day for the second. Burns fat just fine if you have your diet together and are not immune to stims.

    There is ephedra and ephedrine. I seriously doubt you took 500 mgs of ephedrine HCI. I think 500 mgs of ephedrine could easily be deadly. Ephedra comes down to what % is active alkaloid. 500 mgs at 7.5% is about 40mgs ephedrine. Trust me. You don't want to take 500 mgs of ephedrine.

    I've take 300mg at once and been fine, but I'm pretty good with stims.

    I think over 2grams could kill.

    Looking back, the traditional ephedra/caffeine/aspirin stack that I used to take 7 or 8 years ago is the most "dangerous" (or unhealthful) thing I've ever taken. It worked great for burning fat, but I would wake up in the middle of the night sometimes with my heart pounding and racing.

    For me, I won't try that stack again ...

    Bump to that. I am very resistant to ephedrine and take 25 mg with 200mg C 3x ed at most.

    This is entirely too subjective ,it's like trying to define a deadly dose of booze or narcotics. I honestly can't imagine anybody needing more than 50 mg of EPHEDRINE to get your motor running. Any more is asking for nausea and cotton mouth and from there a host of sides of over stimulation. (without a doubt someone has and will continue to take an excess of 50mg and think nothing of it and scoff about the notion) but if used properly ephedrine is quite effective at mild mannered dosages.

    About 12 years ago when I was young (dumb) and partied alot me and my friends could not not find any weed so we decided to buy a bottle of mini thins (25mg ephedrine hcl per tablet, 30 count) and the 3 of us went through the whole bottle in 8 hrs. We all felt pretty good at first but after an hour or so it was a very nervous buzz. The 3 of us set up all night playing poker with pennies and could not hold the cards w/o shaking. My **** also packed up and left for 2 days.

    I was only 17 at the time and felt very stupid afterwards. Knowing what I know now I could have DROPPED DEAD. When your'e fresh out of HS you're in an experimenting stage and you do STUPID things. I just cared about the buzz. I still take ephedra (sometimes) and only 50mgs/day is PLENTY. I just wish HS kids were smart enough (some are) to research before they just "do stuff". I know i'm just rambling but just giving my .02.
