    EC stack-How long should one use it?


    Hey guys
    tried searching but couldn't find what I needed. I was just curious typically how long one can use the EC stack before needing to take a break? I know E effects beta receptors. I've used clen before with success doing 14 on 14 off repeat. What's the best way to utilize EC by itself? O yea ,EC is so nice compared to clen-I actually don't feel like a jittery crackhead who's hearts about to pop
    Thanks
    E

    if you plan on using it for a long time, like more than 4 weeks, i would taper down to avoid a crash, as long as you do that i feel that it can be used safely for a pretty long time, even 8-10 weeks.

    So two to three years then is not good? Hypothetically what would you say the effects could be?

    Bump this one. And to go further, 7 years would be really bad?

    Some very inteligent posters who back up with a lot of references.

    I am in the boat of a long time user and heavy at times. This information made me reconsider a bit more seriously some of my actions.

    Question


    Hi, Need some help from you pros. I have just started eca, not sure of the size of the E in mg but its just a bit smaller than my asprin which is 75mg and the caffeine is 50mg. I am taking just 1 dose in the morning which is 1xE, 2xC & 1xA. My question is would this dose be enough for fat burning before my training and if so how long should i stay on it. would be happy if you guys could help. cheers

    that should work. cycle it after a month. some people stay on it too long and develop a tolerance.

    1XE, 4XC (25mg E, 200mg C) and drop the asprin IMO. Dose this 3X ed if you can. At the start of the third week take 2 benadryl before bed ed for a week. This works very well for me. The only issue I run into is an appetite increase from the Benadryl for the first few days and although it helps knock me out for the night it makes it tougher to get out of bed in the AM as I feel very groggy. I combat this by dosing the EC stack 45 min or so before waking. Makes morning cardio a snap as well. FWIW

    Umm, how exactly do you take something 45 minutes before you wake up?!

    I think most of the time I use Ephedra for about 2 month periods...usually an ECY stack. Ephedra acts more as a ritalin to me and actaully causes me to concentrate more then burn fat. My doctor actually told me this when I told him I was able to concentrate more in the classroom when I was on ephedra based fatbuners. I've got a mild case of ADHD but nothing too terrible. I was just on bolt ephedra for about 2 months and now I'm going to go off of it and start a Methyl DX-3 cycle or 2. Superdrol is just too expensive for me so I'm hoping this stuff will be good.

    I agree, I'm able to really focus on E also. I wouldn't recommend taking it over 8 week however. After the 8 weeks, take a couple months off at least to freshen up the receptors. Get ready for the caffeine headaches tho.
