    .10mg/lb of bw split into 3 or 4 equal doses. More can be consumed but you must assess your tolerance. Doses combined with ephedrine MUST be approach with caution.

    I agree... mixing E and Y is just not worth it. It doesn't stimulate thermogenisis much more than the standard ECA, but with 10x the side effects.

    honestly, I just want to know how much to take with each dose...I cannot figure that out. .10mg, when one pill is 2.5mg...I dont weight 250. Am I doing this right?

    ive been taking ecy for a couple weeks now, ive been ramping the doses up and i still dont really feel any negative effects. what exactly would it be? just anxiety and whatnot, i feel great on ecy. eca seems a little stronger but it could just be cuz i was used to the yohimbine when i switched. i just dont like the idea of taking too much asprin, i feel like it would inhibit muscle growth somehow

    Dude!?!

    .10mg per pound of body weight.

    220lbs x .10mg = 22mg.

    Yeah, I know, still too hard.

    22mg divided by 2.5mg = 8.8

    Stick with 8.

    8 divided by 4 times per day = 2

    Dont give up on the yohimbe guys,you can always run the topical and get the same results with little to no sides.I cant take gte, it makes me want to throw up and if I add yohimbe on top I feel like a zombe.

    You can also get away with an asprin every other day,the stuff stays in you for a while.

    Also another not,when possible use ephedrine hci,its alot more potant and I only take one dose a day and it keeps me buzzed for almost 8 hours.

    I know you are not supposed to drink alcohol with the E/C stack. But tonight I'm planning on going out with friends. If I took a dose at 7:30 AM will I be fine if I will not be drinking until 7:00 or later PM tonight?

    Is all that happens is an intensified effect to the drinking? Or is it something worse to combine the stack and drinking?

    Thanks!

    Eat throughout the day, and drink lots of fluids before indulging, and you will be fine. I got sick on ephedrine one time with a beer, but I had 3 doses in me, and not a lot of food. Being so far apart from your dose, you can eat, and drink fluids and be just normal.

    That's what I was thinking from my readings. I just wanted to make sure and not have anything out of the ordinary happen while out tonight...

    Thank you!

    Okay So I've read through this whole thread twice now, and been looking at it for the past couple of days as well. let me get this right. if I take e/y/gte/ it works better than e/c/a because the e/y compliment each other to target different types of receptors to help with my VAT fat. and the gte will provide prolonged benefits. is this correct? also I have not used any of these before so I would start out at e @ 10mg 2xday, y@.1xbw, and gte at what?

    also would anything of this have a negative reaction with USPLABS Jacked because I take two to three scoops on workout days, and recreate? which would add caffiene. or should I just drop the recreate?

    Further more, I work out every day mon-fri weights and intense cardio; I'm on a ckd diet, and I also have a very active job. Should I only take the e once a day for now? And should I take this stack before or after my workouts. the y I have read in here I should take before...but what about the e/gte?

    My gas station sells ephedra, and just ephedra for like 15 box for 25 10mg pills, wouldn't that be better than taking broncaid so I don't have the guistifin( cough stuff...however it's spelled)?

    From what I've heard, stay away from the gas station Ephedra. You would be better off with bronkaid, I believe.

    As far as I know, the legal supply of ephedra will more thank likely be in the form of an asthma medicine.

    slow down champ, one question at a time lol
    -Ive cut back on Jack3d to only 1 1/2 scoops pre WO
    -as when to take the separate doses, 4-5 hours apart, I structure my timing on my day, so it varies
    -I would stop Recreate, but thats just me...do what you want
    -you grow a tolerance to only one E a day, so you'll have to increase it to two, just be sure your drinking alot of H2O and not alot of other forms of caffeine (coffee, energy drinks, soda)
    -Bronkaid is a cough/respiratory medicine, to the best of my understanding its the best way to get E today, just dont go to extremes with how many you take

    Why are people banking on GTE in the ECA stack? It doesn't replace the E, the C, or the A. It has certain properties as aspirin, but does not reproduce the prostaglandin activity, nor the cAMP activity. GTE has very little caffeine, so why are people wanting GTE instead of something in the ECA stack?

    GTE is great, don't get me wrong, but not in the ECA stack.

    I agree... I only use ECA when a deadline is approaching for something... coupled with an intense amount of that novel stuff called.. Exercising.

    thats alot of questions haha
    -i think the consensus so far is to stick to eca (i liked the ecy too but i guess it has more sides)
    - avoid the jacked if possible or at least lower the dose. the geranium extract in it is pretty strong, ive gotten too overstimulated from that with eca and it affected my lift. now i just take e/y with jacked and skip the c for my pwo dose.
    - if ur just taking it once a day the early morning dose might be best, or preworkout if u dont lift too late at night
    - and u can always get primatene (or the walgreens knockoff brand) which is ephedrine hcl but as far as i know they all have guafeneisin in it

    Thank you!
    Taking E/C before drinking is fun! It makes you super giddy and social... kinda like if you've ever taken adderal and had a few drinks


    Disclaimer: Taking my advice is hardly ever a good idea lol

    So my roommate was about to toss out a bottle of SudoGest (a prescription nasal decongestant). I grabbed it from him and took a look at the ingredients....

    60 mg pseudoephedrine hydrochloride (per pill)

    Worth using in a ECA or should I trash it? If it is worth using how would I dose it? Hoping to get one of the more knowledgable gents like B5150 in on this..thanks!
