    Be glad you learned you lesson without death....I could just see another push to ban this stuff because of how you used it. It really benefits many people who follow the label. I hope they never ban it here in the US.

    Too much ephedrine can spike your sugar levels and make you go hypoglemic.

    Drink some pop, or eat some quick carbs.

    If you start to get dizzy and light headed get some in you asap.

    50 mgs a day make me light headed and shaky some times.

    I'm suprized you can type.

    I agrre. You were playing rusian rullette and you won this time.


    The crude powdered stems of ephedra (with less than 1% ephedrine) are used at 1.5–6 grams per day, taken as a tea.4 The crude herb can also be taken in capsule or tablet form, at 500–1,000 mg of ephedra two to three times daily. Tinctures of 1–4 ml three times per day can be taken. Alternatively, standardized extracts supplying 12–25 mg of total alkaloids (calculated as ephedrine) per capsule or tablet may be taken two to three times daily. This form may be preferable for monitoring total daily intake of ephedrine.


    Ephedra has a long history of safe use at the recommended amounts. However, abuse of ephedra (and particularly ephedrine)—especially for weight loss or as a recreational drug—can lead to amphetamine-like side effects, including elevated blood pressure, rapid heart beat, nervousness, irritability, headache, urination disturbances, vomiting, muscle disturbances, insomnia, dry mouth, heart palpitations, and even death due to heart failure.5 One study has shown that a single application of ephedra caused mild elevation of heart rate but did not consistently affect blood pressure in otherwise healthy adults.6 When taken at higher levels, ephedra can cause drastic increases in blood pressure, as well as cardiac arrhythmias. Ephedrine is considered potentially habit-forming, though it is unclear if the whole herb ephedra is likely to have the same effect.7 Long-term (months or more) overdose of ephedra or ephedrine can potentially cause kidney stones composed of ephedrine, though this is rare.8 A review of 140 reports of heart and nervous-system emergencies concluded that one-third of the adverse health reports were “definitely or probably related” to ephedra and another one-third “possibly related.”9 All of the cases cited were people taking ephedra together with either caffeine and/or drugs with known cardiovascular side effects, such as theophylline and phenylpropanolamine.

    Anyone with high blood pressure, heart conditions, diabetes, glaucoma, hyperthyroidism, anxiety or restlessness, impaired circulation to the brain, benign prostatic hyperplasia with residual urine accumulation, pheochromocytoma (primary adrenal tumor), and those taking MAO-inhibiting antidepressants, digitoxin, or guanethidine should consult with a physician before using any type of product containing ephedra.10 Pseudoephedrine can cause drowsiness and should be used with caution if driving or operating machinery. Ephedra-based products should be avoided during pregnancy and breast-feeding and should not be used in children under the age of six years without medical supervision.

    Are there any drug interactions? Certain medications may interact with ephedra. Refer to the drug interactions safety check for a list of those medications.
