As far as I know Ephedra dialates blood vessels. Maybe high blood pressure, I've heard that can affect your ability to get a hardon.Originally Posted by powerlifter6920

ECA makes me feel like I'm pissing out glass alot of times. Has your prostate been bothering you at all...does it burn when you pee?Originally Posted by keon

I have heard that long term ephedrine use (like many of us seem to do) causes such a prob. Taking a break for a month or 2 takes care of it, and it restores our ability to maximize effects and effectiveness of the supp. as downregulated receptors normalize again. If you can stand it, its also advisable to cycle off all CNS stimulants (caffeine included) from time to time for the same reason. Unfortunately for me, just knowing this has not yet empowered me to sack up and pull it off. I think its called addiction.

My prostate hates eca. I noticed it immediately after my very first dose. Kinda sucks but I've got clen.

i found a good quality tribulus helped when it happened to me. i used some trib supps that were just crap but once you find a good one you'll love it.
i was walking around with half a mongrel all day. my wife loved it & quickly worked it into our household budget.
i also used fish oil which seemed to help as well but i'm not sure why this happened. but erections increased even further when i increased the fish oil.
probably the hormone response from it.
i was on for close to a year & finally bit the bullet & went off ECA & swapped it for green tea extract & pure caffeine which worked great so i cycle the 2 now.
i actually prefer the green tea & caffeine as i don't get the anxiety & mood swings that i sometimes got with the ECA.

i have been taking ephedrine for a while and i have never had a problem getting it up. although i do lose my sex drive after 3-4 weeks.

I hate the crash from ephedra - and this side effect.

No prostate problems with clen? In another thread, others said they thought it had/could cause problems.Originally Posted by bioman

This is correct, it's a peripheral vasoconstictor, so less blood flow to the extremeties due to the increased pressor effect on the cardiovascular system.Originally Posted by powerlifter6920

I had very mild prostate issues when I used clen. Basically just a little longer to take a leak, no pain.
After a dose or two of ECA I could feel sharp pains in my prostate that lasted for hours..and I was taking a very small ECA dose.

Bio, sometimes these adrenergic amines are used to discourage urination. Like for kids at night (stims actually calm kids so it's not as weird as it sounds) so it sux, but it's normal, I would not be alarmed by it.

Thanks D. I wasn't too alarmed by the clen. The eca was a tad unnerving, especially since it was the very first dose I'd ever taken. Going to cycle in some beta sitasterol and lycopene just to patch things up with my beloved prostate, lol.

Sure thing, Bio. I here daily lyco, zinc, and sterols are the key to long term prostate happiness too.
