i just got my 12.5 ephedrine HCL and need to know how much is a safe quantity to take? I am going to stack it with White Willow and caffiene. I just need to know how many pills a day is safe?
the caffiene is 200 mg and the white willow is 400mg
should i take one pill of each 2 or 3 times a day
or take 2 pills of the ephedrine and 1 of caffiene, and 1 of willow 2 or 3 times a day. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thermogenesis increases with ECA over time, while the sides decrease
Here is how it works: Ephedrine works by stimulating the release of the bodies own noradrenaline, which stimulates ALL the adrenergic receptors. The stimulant side effects subside because they are primarily mediated by the beta-1 and beta-2 receptors, which downregulate during chronic use. Thus, the scientists were startled when they found that the thermogenic effect actually INCREASED with chronic use.
This phenomena led scientists to believe that there must be an undiscovered receptor involved in noradrenaline-induced thermogenesis. Then the scientists found that -- even after blocking all the known adrenergic receptors -- non-selective drugs like ephedrine still caused a significant thermogenic effect. The evidence supporting the existence of an undiscovered receptor that is stimulated by noradrenaline continued to increase.
Eventually, this led to the discovery of the beta 3 receptor, which is more resistant to desensitization (20, 21, 22, 23) than the other beta receptors -- and that is why the thermogenic effect of ECA is maintained so well during chronic use. Now you know why it is not necessary to "cycle" ECA. Indeed, why would you want to maintain the side effects when you can enjoy increased fat burning without ANY stimulation?
