Actually I have done pleanty of research on ephedra, and have yet to find something that is truly conclusive saying that it causes problems in otherwise healthy individuals. I know if you have a preexisting condition it can agitate it. I also know that most deaths related to the substance (the few that there are) the subject usually had other substances in their body, or was taking more than the recommended dosage.

The reason why people take supplements is to give them that extra push while working out or to make them feel fuller during so they eat less during the day. [NOTE: even though you eat less, make sure that what you are eating less of is still healthy and not fried, fatty stuff.]
While diet pills have turned into a multi-billion dollar industry, people will always use some sort of supplement pills to help them.
Even the biggest and healthiest guys [and gals <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">] take supplements to help them work out.
I also took Xenadrine RFA with the ephedra and I did get jittery, but I noticed no side effects from it or health problems. However, too much and you become dependant on it. The only problem I found with it was that if I missed my afternoon pills that my body would crash at about 4:30-5 and i would have to take a nap to get my strength back. Other than that, I was fine and lost 30 lbs in 3 months.
You know, my point was that some people are ignorant, they take ephedra before consulting with their doctors, with out knowing what ephedra could do, some people are sentitive to ephedra, and some just abuse it. I read people taking normal dosage of Ephedra diet pills, had stroke, even when they didnt have health problems. So you people have the power to lose weight, if you want to do it natural way, its the best ! but if you do diet pills in your own risk, and something happens, please dont complain...
I agree with you. These pills do aggravate existing conditions - anyone who is going to take them should think - Could i have an underlying health issue that i don't know about? Could there be a tiny weak section of blood vessel in my brain that could become an anuerysm - Do i really want to find out?
They are totally unnecessary, so why take the risk?
The most dangerous side effects of these pills are the ones with NO VISIBLE sypmtoms - that is until its too late... not having noticible side effects does NOT mean that this is not damaging you.
Why risk your health to loose weight a little faster.
Personally, I view this website and forum a place to ask questions, get support, and share stories and struggles...
I don't understand why people who take diet pills are getting slammed "Oh my God" and "that crap"
If you want to voice a concern about ephedra..that is fine..but that is not what you were doing and you know that...your post was a rude...the fact is most people taking diet pills..understand the dangers and if they don't, they can learn...but there is no reason to belittle them.
If you don't want to take pills...don't...but don't try to seem as if you are so above it...because you have never been in anyone else's shoes on this board and we are here to support one another and help one another and learn from one another...not to be rude and condescending to one another, there is enough of that in the world already.
Instead of bashing people for their diet choices why don't you post what works for you and try to voice some encouragement instead.
kkecu before you come here with an attitude towards me, you dont know me okay... I was telling my opinion, and it was a pozitive opinion and most of the people agreed with me okay. I am just saying that before taking diet pills and taking that risks should talk to their doctors to prevent any problems that could happen. I try to warn people, and tell them about ephedra, and who dont know what it is, or what it could do... so please dont call me rude, so think if you took diet pills and nothing happen to ya, dont mean it wont happen to other people... Also I want to say Thank You to those people, who lost weight naturally, and with out diet pills... Great Job !!!
