    Smile HELP! Ephedrine/ Caffeine Stack Question

    Hey guys,

    I just recently started taking 24mg Ephedrine / 200 mg Caffeine 2X day, for a couple of days now and so far it works wonderfully. The only main side effects ive experience is the obvious 'rush', nausea, and major appetite suppression (which definitely helps).

    I've been read up a lot on different cycles that people do to 'readjust' their body system after taking EC for some time. For some it's 2weeks ON/ 2 weeks OFF. For others it's 8 weeks ON/ 2-3 weeks OFF. But i've also read about some ppl don't come off the EC at all...I've decided that i'm going to do 3 weeks ON/ 1 week OFF and see how that goes.

    Now my question is, what is the benefits of doing a cycle and does it even matter if you do one at all?

    My 2nd Q is that after a while, i hear that the body builds tolerance to the EC dosage and apparently you don't feel the 'rush' anymore. Now although the EC will continue burning the fat and working up the metabolism, aside from not feeling the 'rush', does this also mean it won't suppress the appetite anymore? Does a cycle fix that, or will i have to up my dosage of 2X a day to 3X a day (which i really don't want to do) .

    Would appreciate any feed back/ advice Thank you!

    What benefits do you think you will receive from E/C? Do you expect such a "cycle" will aid in your fat loss?

    Im like 10 days in, dont feel the rush anymore, but i still do 200mg caffeine and 25 mg ephedrine twice a day. Heart rate still is elevated and i notice a little fat loss still. the appetite suppression is not as strong, but still works pretty good, which is great. My stomach shrank so i dont eat as much anymore due to this appetite suppression and the inability to eat big meals

    I'm using it as an 'extra push' to aid burn some stubborn fats...I obviously do not see it as a magic weight drug. So believe me, i'm putting in work, BIG TIME.

    As for the cycle, well i just started doing the EC stack, so again, i dont know. Surprisingly there isn't too much information regarding how to come on or off the cycles etc.

    Hence the reason why i posted my question.

    i think 8 weeks on 2-3 off would show better results. appetite suppression and energy will fade as your body adapts. you don't want to stay on it indefinitely. when coming off, drop the ephedrine, and taper off caffeine or just go cold turkey if you have big balls.

    cycling ec, is good for a couple reasons.

    firstly your body adapts the stimulant over time, in terms of the rush effect and the appetite suppression. when your appetite suppression fades after a few weeks, cycle off it for a few days/weeks and then when you come back on you'll get the rush and appetite suppression effects again. you're receptors effectively clean themselves. (not a scientific way of wording it sorry)

    some people don't cycle off it because the thermogenic effects of EC remain, no matter how long you use it.

    secondly to lessen any unwanted to sides such as high blood pressure.

    Ok, awsome. So how do you come off it exactly? lol....Do you personally get off it cold turkey or you do it slowly? I feel it really wouldnt matter.

    Yea i definitely wouldn't be doing this without at least a cycle in between. I'm actually not a big fan of the 'rush'...but the appetite suppress is definitely handy!

    Taper off caffeine if you need to prevent caffeine withdrawal headaches. Just drop the E.

    as above me seems to be how most people do it. i just do 3-4 days a week on EC throughout the cycle to keep it simple though

    Ephedrine and caffeine can be purchased pretty much at any supplement store
    Each store I've been in has caffeine tablets that go for around 100 tablets for 8 bucks its a good price
    For the ephedrine it might be a little harder, When I purchased mine I had to ask the guy at the counter because they didnt keep it in the open because depending where you live if its sold in larger quantities it may be illegal.
    So just go ask the guy who works there and you'll be good
