finally, the difference between ephedrine sulfate and HCL

  1. finally, the difference between ephedrine sulfate and HCL


    found this and im sure alot of people were wondering what the differences were - i was.


    Ephedrine HCl is approximately 82% ephedrine by weight.
    Ephedrine sulfate is approximately 77% ephedrine by weight.
    25 mg ephedrine HCl = 20.5 mg ephedrine
    25 mg ephedrine sulfate = 19.25 mg ephedrine


    no more primatene for me.

    bronkaid you get 100% more, and a 5% difference in mg.
    For me, the action IS the juice.

    primatene is the HCL last time a checked.

  3. exactly. primatene you get 12.5 mg x 60 tablets
    bronkaid you get 25mg x 60

    theres only a 5% difference by weight between the HCL ( primatene) and the sulfate ) bronkaid ), meaning the primatene is a terrible deal.


    i should have put that in the original post. but basically primatene is 10 dollars and change and the bronkaid is 13 and change and you get double the ephedrine . the problem is, people thought that the HCL was so much better than the sulfate that the loss in quantity was worth paying for, for a supposed superior product ( primatene )

    this proves that the choice should ALWAYS be bronkaid.
    For me, the action IS the juice.

  4. Or u can go to walgreens and buy the genaric brand that they make for 8$ a pop. It's made to mimic Primatene. So it has Ephedrine HCL at a lower cost.

    Correct. I'm looking at my box of Bronkaid, and it is Sulfate not HCL.

    no one ever said bronkaid was HCL.

  7. You implied it in your first post.

    Reread his first 2 posts its clearly stated.

  9. Wow, that's interesting! Reps for you.

  10. i think both have 25 mg active ingredient. The salt form is usually accounted for in the pill. You can start looking at the bioavailability of each salt form too. I wouldn't get too hung up on this stuff.
