Why do I feel nothing from ECA?

Why do I feel nothing from ECA?
I started the ECA stack a week ago, and I keep hearing all this talk about massive amounts of energy, concentration, etc. I have yet to feel ANYTHING that is even remotely equivalent to the reports I have been reading. I do get a mild appetite suppression, but I can still seriously put a dent into a very large quantity of food right after a dose. Am I doing something wrong? I've never done anything with Ephedrine in it, so maybe I'm thinking it's something it isn't, but I would think I would feel something. I actually fell asleep about 2 hours after taking my "lunch" dose. I am taking the following 3 times a day (@ 0600, @1200, @1800):
25mg Ephedrine S04 (Bronkaid)
200mg Caffeine (Pharmaceutical)
81mg Baby Aspirin (Bayer)
I am 145 lbs, 14.8% BF, proper hydration. Just to give you some info as far as dosing/sensitivity is concerned.
Also, I started taking OxyElite Pro yesterday for it's Alpha-Yohimbine content mainly (which provides the alpha adrenergic receptor inhibitors to work with ephedrine synergistically, if I researched correctly), and cut out the Caffeine from my original stack since OEP has 100mg caffeine. Again, I feel nothing. Same appetite suppresion. Any suggestions are welcome! I'm looking to lose about 4.5%-5% BF in 6 months, so I have time, no rush. And maybe that's what I need to take, my TIME, but I would prefer to find out earlier than later if my dosages are screwed up! Thanks for any help guys!
I am ABSOLUTELY fine with any site references to research as well, as I actually prefer to FIND the answer rather than to ask the question. Anywho, thanks again!

First time I did it I was all jittery and couldn't sit still......second time around I didn't feel much, either. I also used yohimbe instead of aspirin.True story:
I give a f**K!!

So did you make any changes to your dosing, abandon it all together and try something different, or...? Just curious! Thanks for the post!

I bought the OxyElite Pro when looking for leftover SlimXtreme... Didn't phase my hunger in the least.. Very poor suppliment.

this isn't interesting..it could be a number of factors. when do you take them? do you take them all together or spaced apart? with or without food? fasted? most importantly!...what do you take it with???

Oh, well; I'm sorry you're not interested TomKat. And to think, from all your other posts that I've seen you in, especially the "Advanced Weight Loss" Thread, I had you pegged for a decent guy. Hmmm. Hopefully, I'm just being over-sensitive and you're not jabbing at me, but either way, I guess I'll go back to trolling. Peace out yall.
Thanks Texzen123. It helps a lot to know I wasn't the ONLY one not responding very well to OEP, especially after reading all those "testimonials" (if that's what they really were, I know NOTHING of USPLabs, so I would hate to knock them just because it didn't work for me, but...) Anywho, thanks for your post Texzen. I guess we'll close out this thread though, since it doesn't seem to "interest" anybody else. Maybe I'd have better luck if I just ask someone to make a diet for me. Take it easy guys, and thanks again.

FWIW the ECA stack doesn't seem to effect me as far as fat loss either. If it does anything to my appetite I'd be surprised since I can't tell at all.

Scans show the prefrontal cortex of people with "classic" ADD actually decreases in activity while concentrating. That is akin to hitting the gas pedal but going slower. Stimulates allow the prefrontal cortex to stay in a normal activity range.
Now that I'm done with my ADD moment, I return you to the regularly scheduled thread.

I would not recommend you take them. Caffeine and ephedrine both can elevate blood pressure and aspirin has been known to thin blood.

Alright guys, sorry I'm late. My base is doing a Pre-ORI exercise, so I'm on 12's right now (0600 to 1800). Anywho, thanks for all the replies guys! Oh, and Tom Cat, I was having a pretty bad day yesterday, and as such, I read too much into your post (and I also didn't realize that your "Shut up Bitch" whatchamacallit was in your sig. I thought you were actually telling me to shut up, and as such, I think you could probably understand my reply!). Anywho, I really do apologize; no attack intended. Anywho, wow! This thread picked up quick! Now to answer some questions!
I take them all together at 0400, 1000, and 1600, at least 1 hour before food. And, I only drink water now, starting about 3 weeks ago when I started this stack. Oh, and I don't think I have ADD, or at least I've never been diagnosed with it. My concentration isn't all there, but who's is!?! Thanks for all the help guys! I gotta run for a couple hours, but I'll be back on when I get back. Thanks again!

Ya know, that's kinda what I was thinking!!! Actually, I did just come into a supply of RPNs Alphaburn. Thinking about switching out OEC with that, and seeing how that goes. I know the Alpha2 AR-antagonistic behavior quality of it would go very well with ephedrine's non-specific Alpha and Beta AR-agonistic behavior, thus blocking out ephedrine's effects on the Alpha receptors. Not crazy about the MAOI though. Anywho, I need to research the dosage, the MAOIs potency (in realtionship to other MAOIs), variables that effect a persons sensitivity to a-yohimbine, etc. If anybody has any thoughts on this, especially heart rate and blood pressure stabilization on a-yohimbine, please feel free to chime in! Thanks!

I dont know much on Y, only that in high doses its wicked...anxiety attacks, high BP, nausea, sexual problems, etc. It seems to me your worried about which receptors here and there, when the only thin that matters is heart rate, and who's to say for sure what supp hits which receptors. Just because it something says it does, were still not 100% sure on most of the OTC supps today

i never felt a whole lot of difference taking leviathan reloaded with ECA.
i may start doing that though - even if i don't feel it, increased thermogenesis is likely
For me, the action IS the juice.

The ECY stack was CRAZY for the first dose. I take 1 RPN alphaburn in morning, and 1 6 hours later. Anywho, After that first dose, I stopped feeling anything. Any ideas?
I'm fine not experiencing any of the stimulant effects, I prefer not to actually. The only thing I'm concerned about is the fat loss.
