Bullsh*t story........... Firstly, Ephidrine HCL is only positive for about 24 hours in relatively big doses. If taken in doses prescribed in normal cases for flu etc the dosage never exceeds 25mgs three times per day. This will NOT exceed the maximum limit if you are around the 75 kg mark in any way whatsoever. Secondly, Eben, your ephidrine was not from a flu medicine. It was from one of your pretoria buddies who sold you a 25 gram bottle of Ephidrine HCL BP from Allied pharmaceuticals. That little grey bottle made by Consol with the white lid is not a flu medicine, its Ephidrine in its purest form. Why the hell would you take that anyway. Phenylephrine is at the moment about 90% cheaper, twice as effective, does not effect heart rate and as easy to get as water that goes into your bottle and guess what..... untraceable. Ephidrine HCL will sooon be off the market completely. It is used as an ingridient for too many recreational drugs worldwide and there is a big push to create a substance with similar or better effect that cannot be used to make drugs like KAT, tik or Crystal meth. 2 years ago 1kg would cost about R900 now its sometimes over R50k per kg on the black market. Phenylephrine seems to be the way the WHO is going. The process to make any of these recreational drugs seems to work 100% untill on pesky little ingridient (Chromium oxide) needs to be added. Then it all seems to head south.
