    EC(A) stack basics

    Can somebody give me the basics of the ECA stack that I see recommended on here so often?

    I know it stands for Ephedrine, Caffeine, and the Aspirin is optional, I think? What ratio am I trying to achieve (and is that impacted by the fact that I drink soda and/or take a preworkout supplement with caffeine in it?) What dosage of ephedrine should one start with? What is the timeframe for cycling on and off of this stack?

    Anything else that may be beneficial to someone looking to learn more about this stack, please post it here. I'm sure I'm not the only one lurking on these boards that is curious.

    FWIW, the search function sucks. I don't want to read forums from 2007. A lot can change in 12 years.

    The search function does suck. Heres some info from my personal experience.

    I've been taking ec on/off for a few years now (had a year break) and usually just take it everyday. I do not cycle it and have read from multiple threads you dont need to cycle it.. The only reason why i would suggest cycling it is to give your body a break. I usually take a few days off from all supplements once a month or every other month, just to give my body a break. As far as dosing, go to a rite aid/cvs/walgreens and get bronkaid. its 60 pills for $15, i think every pill has 19.5mg of E in it then also get 200mg caffeine pills. I would personally start for the first few days dosing with half a bronkaid pill and a full caffeine pill a day, then slowly work up to a pill of E and C a day, then once you assess tolerance do x3 a day. All depending on how you feel your body is responding. Everyone is different.

    This stack is no joke. Take it seriously and listen to your body, is the #1 piece of advice I can give you. Its a diuretic so make sure to drink lots of water and get enough salt, potassium and sugar so you dont get hypoglycoma (read many cases of this). Because it makes you INSANELY thirsty and this can dilute your sodium, potassium and sugar levels in your blood. (i got sent to the hospital for this exact reason because of EC). Since then, I've been researching the hell out of it and taking it much more seriously now. The results are through the roof and you will see results if your diet is in check which it already should be.

    As for other intakes of caffeine and other stims. I think its ok, again its dependent on each body, everyone is different, some people are stim sensitive, some arent. Listen to your body. As for me, I take a PWO, yohimbe, and my morning coffee on top of EC and im fine, sometimes I feel my heart racing but thats about it. Stay safe OP and do TONS of research. Any questions, just ask ITT (in this thread)

    Edit: also dont take Aspirin, heard nothing but bad things about it. just EC

    edit 2: I am not a medical professional and all my advice is from personal experience only. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY

    Thank you for a great reply. Repped.

    Right now I'm not really cutting. I'm trying to eat closer to maintenance and build some muscle, but I'm still about 20 or 25 pounds heavier than where I want to end up. Would you recommend starting this stack now or in several months when I go back into a cut?

    I tried eca stack for a week and got deathly ill.

    No thanks Jeff. That crap is a drug and to put it into context. Ephedrine is the main ingredient in crystal meth.

    So you do your own research but imo. It is NOT worth it.

    I don't go to the gym anymore so above stats are useless.

    Only do weighted calastentics in the comfort of my own home!

    It is used primary for cutting weight, but I do have more energy at the gym after taking it. I think there are better things to take if you are just looking for a pre-workout though.

    My personal advice would be to wait for a cut. EC stack is specifically for losing weight.

    maybe cut the A and check your dosing. what were your symptoms? Were you drinking enough water? Too much? Also theres chemicals in almost everything nowadays, I've heard rat **** is in every container of peanut butter. Its just theories. Not FACTS. 9 times out of 10 cases like yours is because of lack of RESEARCH. DO YOUR RESEARCH.
