Most likely, you will be okay at those doses. Most people can handle 1200mg without any noticeable effects. But, as with any drug, individual response will vary, so there is a small chance you may be hyper sensitive to it. I wouldnt worry about it though.
If you haven't tried ephedrine before, I recommend against taking 75mg your first time. 75mg would make me feel uncomfortable and anxious. Personally, I think ephedrine is a definite "less is more" kinda drug. Low doses can be somewhat useful for a quick energy boost, but it's only the negative effects that seem to increase after a certain point (about 50mg for me).
Hope that helped.
You'd be overdosing on the ephedrine in those Bronkaids before the guaifenesin makes you really sick.
stirfry is right, there is a fine line between too little and too much with ephedrine. 75mg is probably too much unless you have a tolerance to stimulants of that nature (including amphetamines, as ephedrine and amphetamines have cross-tolerance).
I would start with 25mg or 37.5mg (that's one a half pills) and see how you feel. Usually 25-50mg is the sweet spot, anything higher and you'll be getting a lot more negative side effects than desired speedy effects.
If you've never taken it before, go ahead and start with one pill (25mg ephedrine), wait an hour or so and see how you feel. If you've got an empty stomach when you take it it will kick in a lot quicker than if you eat a big meal and then take the pill.
So if you're not where you wanna be 90 minutes after taking 25mg, take another half a pill, bringing you up to 37.5mg. I wouldn't recommend taking 50mg at once if you don't have any experience with ephedrine.
well most people using it for real purposes dont mix it with caffeine. i got 4 everfit 8 mg tabs which are ephedrine hcl, and i was wondering whats the highest people go per dose if dosing 2x per day?Thanks to you too...I have a small tolerance to amphetamines, but I think I'll start with one. It seems weird that the dosage of one pill would make me feel speedy...something about people using it for its real purposes feeling speedy off of it seems strange.
Well, I took one and felt very little, took 1.5 felt little, so now I've taken 2. Less than what I expected...
