Efedrine - Is It Without Prescription In Your Country?

Hi , i`m the student of 2nd year of medicine and I have a question for u...Do u use efedrine and is it available without prescription in your country?
Sometimes I use efedrine - especially when i`m tired and I have to do a lot of things.I can buy it without prescription in form of the drug for a cough(called tussipect in poland).What are your experiences with the efedrine?

i live in canada and here the substance you are refering to is called ''ephedra'' in english and ''ephedrine'' in french.

It is not sold in my country, but I order it online from the united states. I absolutely adore it, but I am well aware of the risks. I try to not take it every day (but honestly it's mainly because I develop a tolerance and want to still get the ''high'' when I take it) and try to take long breaks (months) without using it after a fiew months of regular use.

Last year, it caused me depression and fatigue to be taking it, it had been perhaps 6 weeks that I had taken them every single day. So you must be careful with this. A tolerance can develop, just like with truly illegal drugs.

I used to like metabolife, but they changed the formula and I don't feel the lift so much... I now take redx, 2 capsules twice a day, 4 or 5 days a week. When I am ready to take a break, I take the metabolife to gradually come down. By the way, when I quit snorting cocaine (stopped for three months after heavy using for ten months), taking ephedra helped give me energy, uplift my mood, curb appetite and countered some withdrawal effects.

Do you take any other substances to give you energy?

Hoping not but feel free to talk about it,

Oh yeah I really like this high after taking some ephedrine.I`m the student of medicine and I use it to learn but it is also good for the hangover.I don`t take other drugs of this kind.
You have to know that there is a limit of consuming the ephedrine:
75 mg at once and 150/24h.
