Ephedrine Sulfate vs. Ephedrine HCL
Im about to start and ECA stack within the next week I was originaly going to buy vasopro for the ephedrine hcl but I was in the drug store the other day(walgrens) and I seen a product called bronkaid its has the same two main ingredients as vasopro except it contains Ephedrine Sulfate and not Ephedrine HCL so what is the difference? Is there a difference?

I have been told that the sulfate version delivers 1/3 the ephedrine to your system. I know how because it used some in depth bio/chem. However i know a lot of people, including myself, who use bronkaid and it works fine 3-4 pills a day and drink water.

So if I was taking 1 pill of Vasopro for 25mg of HCL how many pills of bronkaid (ephedrine sulfate) would I have to take to get same effect?
05-10-2007, 03:55 PM
From what i have been told and from my experiance i would not exceed 4 pills a day on bronkaid. The sulfate version is less effective but still good enough to do the job. Ephedrine is safe just don't over do it, that is how people die.

So do you think I should still on take 25mg of the sulfate per dose? Everyone feel free to give advice..

i also want more info on this...no more than 4 pills and when should u take them? do u spread them out trough out the day?
05-11-2007, 02:31 AM
yeah i take one when i wake up, about lunch, before i go run/workout, and about 6:30 or 7. If i take it later i feel wired and cant sleep to well. I only take 1 pill 4x a day @ 25mg and it is working for me, but feel free to do anything you like.

Well since no one on here could give a solid answer I did some research and came up with this.....
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

I've been purchasing Bronkaid at local pharmacies as well. There seems to be no real difference from my experience with hcl and sulfate but the sulfate seems to hit the system signficantly quicker. The moment I pop the bronkaid it hits me within seconds, if not minutes later. To some extent it might seem a bit weaker or have a shorter half life but it works just as well.
60 tabs for 12 dollars too, its cheap.

I started taking Bronchaid a few days ago - It REALLY opens you up. I didnt realize it but from the immense difference i can tell - I am seriously wonderig if I did not have mild athsma i have always had alot of problems with pain in my lungs when doing heavy cardio - with Bronchaid it has totally stopped. I thought it was caused by me not being in shape. I just rode an exercise bike for 25 miles this morning!!!

bronkaid contains Guaifenesin in addition to the ephedrine sulfate, and i hear that guaifenesin causes unwanted side effects. so i was wondering if anyone knows how to purify the ephedrine from the guaifenesin

FWIIW, I don't seem to get any headaches from it. I think the reason BBers don't like the guaifenesin is b/c it's said to work as a muscle relaxant and that is undesireable while lifting.

purifying ephedrine possible solution
so i found something on extracting the ephedrine, but something does not make complete sense to me:
"I've been a utilitarian user of ephedrine pills for a good while now, popping one or two over the counter pills at a dosage of about 25mg of ephedrine with 200mg of guaifisin. However, upon hearing about the negative effects of the guaifisin in higher doses, I decided to try extracting the pure ephedrine from the pills to take that instead.
I powdered and heated the pills in distilled water until they were brought to a boil, then removed from the heat and strained them through filters, added more water to the sludge and repeated the processs one more time. The resulting water that was strained off was then dried into powdered ephedrine again. I mixed up the powder in a bit of soda and drank it (god awful by the way, ephedrine is excessively bitter).
It took approximately 15 minutes or so before the effects came on, getting stronger and stronger over the next hour. It wasn't a very intense experience, but rather a very clean, energetic feeling and exceptional focus. All in all, the effects lasted possibly five or six hours, and did an excellent job of making me alert without too much of a speedy intensity to it. "
okay so what i don't get is after the water is strained off, how did he/she get the water to evaporate to get the powdered product? i know ephedrine is soluble in water, so i guess i could just drink all the water, but i do not know if guanifisen is soluble as well.
so again my question is, does anyone know how to dry off the water to get teh powdered ephedrine?

In humans, the drug "warnings" (I put it in quotations because it would be very difficult to overdose on guaifenesin) say not to exceed 2400mg/24 hours. 4 Bronkaid per day yields only 1600mg of guaifenesin (25mg ephedrine/400mg guai).
However, at the dose required for muscle relaxant effects in animals, personally I would require 11000mg in one IV injection.
Of course, you can't use the 110mg/kg in horses and apply it directly to humans. And you also can't evaluate the difference in GI absorption and IV injection.
Suffice it to say, I doubt the muscle relaxant concerns are warranted.

Wow this is a really good thread!
A little backround on me before I try both (and report results here on AM, or course):
I grew up with asthma and at some point through playing numerous sports through childhood and adolescence I sorta grew out of it. Or my body just learned how to adapt. Anyway, being in the Army causes me to go all over the world, to various climates and run run run. The problem is that over several climate changes and specifically in extreme cold the asthma symptoms come back with a force! Right before Ephedra was banned I took it regularly and loved it (never paid attention to Sulfate vs HCl)! I was extremely disappointed when it was banned...and now I know that I can easily get it again!!! Thanks!! By the way just a disclaimer that I'll post again with my results: I've taken massive amounts of stims over the years to the point that my tolerance is off the charts! Basically if either of these has an effect on me I'll definitely know it and vigorously report it to you guys!!!
Why not buy Pseudoephedrine HCI? You can get it at any pharmacy.
Drug Facts for Sudafed
Now I have take the REAL Sudafed for colds...and you have to get it from behind the pharmacy counter with proof of driver's license, address, etc. This is for tracking purposes because Pseudoephedrine is an active ingredient in Meth and Law Enforcement keeps track through the pharmacies who is buying in bulk for their meth lab. Yes...DRUG DOGS WILL ACTUALLY SIT ON SUDAFED!!! Pretty funny actually.
Nonetheless Pseudoephedrine worked great for when I had a cold...and had great stim properties, of course. Is it possible actual Ephedrine is that time 10? Yea I got it - "Pseudo" in front means its "fake ephedrine"...but wouldn't meth heads use actual Ephedrine if it were that much more effective? Just sayin....
IN 27 YEARS I'VE NEVER GONE 0-4 IN WILDCARD WEEKEND!!!
until now. yup I put money on every game too. excuse me while i go drink myself smart.

As an asthmatic I like the Primatene tabs better (ephedrine HCL). I have also had success with the Bronkaid. It just seems I got more out of the HCL.
