Re: ephedrine vs. pseudoephedrine
They work very similarly; limits are now being applied to OTC pseudoephedrine sales because the "powers that be" suspect overweight people are taking it for weight loss, and worse, TO GET HIGH. <oh, horrors>
Pseudo tends to raise BP so is probably something of a slight stroke risk but less than ephedrine.
Pseudo DOES work for weight loss in much the same way as eph....but our bodies get used to it in the same way so it's not a very good crutch to base a good weight loss plan.
