    if you already have a ridiculously fast heart rate, should you really be taking stimulants?

    Ephedrine will kill you.

    Period.

    Maybe not now, but it will shorten your life. It causes your heart to endure excessive stress.

    It caused a number of high school and college football players to die during practice. At the time, the FDA considered banning it.

    Why would you abuse your body like this?

    Stupid if you ask me.

    Remember, you only have one body to get your through life...take care of it! :)

    If this stuff is so dangerous, why can it be bought at a convenience store? :confused:

    Many things purchased at a convenience store can kill you if used incorrectly.

    Some more easily than others.

    Lots of dangerous things can be bought in stores. Knives are one example...

    It's safe when used correctly, but when you use it just for recreation, (not that I know of anybody who uses knives for recreation :eek: ), but when used incorrectly, these chemicals can be deadly.

    Really, I'd avoid that stuff...

    Same reason cigarettes et al can be bought there as well.

    Uh... Its at a safe 132BPM resting rate now.


    I'm good.
    My head is really tingly. I dont think I will take this anymore. :D



    PS- The guy at the store really shouldnt have sold them to me. It has a big sign, MUST BE 18 OR OVER WITH ID...... I'm not 18. I have no ID.

    I tried that stuff about 12 years ago when I wanted to drop a little weight....I'm hyper enough as it is, without that stuff coursing through my veins. My hands shook for hours after words.

    Uhm... See a doctor. Try to slow down that rate.
    When I had bouts of tachycardia, my rate went up to ~!30, ~140, and I almost died. Heart rates that fast aren't safe in the least.

    The guy who sold it to you should be fired.

    Its normal for me 125 to 135 is around normal.
    Its a genetic thing. Me and my mum both. They havent found a cure for her nor me yet. Other than propanolol, that makes us both sick.

    That doesn't mean it's normal. It means you have a pre-exisiting condition. Which means you really should NOT be using any stimulants.

    Besides potentially killing you, it also makes you post like a goof... ;)

    I have a friend who DIED from ephedrine. We were in high school. He was healthy, on the football team, ran track, and was killed because he suffered cardiac arrest due to ephedrine.

    Your parents should smack you *****less.

    We'd like to see you stay around for a while. And if you ALREADY have a pre-existing heart condition you're participating in a natural selection exercise. That stuff is BAD BAD news.

    There is nothing more redundant than someone from Floriduh doing something stupid.

    When was it smart to jump from candy to un-healthcare? The chocolate is better for you.
