  • Ephedrine Crackdown Starting Up Again?

    History seems to be repeating itself...

    Rite-Aid stores have always been my best source of Ephedrine (i.e. Bronkaid) but I've been told at two stores that,
    - "We've been told to pull them off the shelf and Primotine is next."
    - "We ran out and we have not been given another supply and do not know why."

    Fortunately, "Wally-World" was there to save the day (back in the day, they never carried it here), but less places in MI are carrying the products. Maybe the Crystal Meth crowd is really picking up in these parts or something.

    What's really scary is that a vast majority of the pharmacists at various stores have no clue about the law/product (as some will sell one box only or two only, even though the legal limit is much more) and if they are like that about Ephedrine, how are they with more serious drugs?

    So just an FYI as I know every state is different.

    I need to make a run for some more quick then. I haven't been to buy any in about a month, I buy 2 boxes usually at a time every now and then, and have stocked up a bit. Will check this out though. What state are you in?

    Edit: I just called CVS, they said they don't have it in stock and won't be getting any more. FML. I wonder if someone caught on. Not that it'd be hard with all the internet posts and mess about it.

      I never noticed a huge difference from the ephedrine in bronkaid or primatene. Anyone else?

          Yeah I noticed several websites that carry it, may have to resort to that. Was just nice hitting up CVS or Walgreens for it instead of waiting for it to ship.

            I honestly have never seen it at a CVS or Walgreens. Maybe it is something with Maryland state laws... Lucky you

                It was behind the counter, had to ask for it. It's likely the same in MD, but I'm not sure of ya'lls laws there. I called while at work and asked if they had any in stock at the CVS close to my job, and they said they haven't had it in a while and don't have any orders in for it.

                  This sucks...I don't use ephedrine but I used to. I liked it for all the reasons most people do...I remember using Ultimate Orange... I think it had the herbal equivalent in it. That stuff was crazy. It was probably one of the first pre-workout drinks. Tasted like gasoline though...lol. Its just sad that the govt has to constantly step into the supp market and put restrictions on everything. In the meantime, anyone can find a doctor to give them open ended scripts for dangerous painkillers...its really unbelievably corrupt...

                    Meh, I'm frequently upended about the whole steroid/MLB crap and ephedrine mombo jombo crap going on, 1,3 DMAA is next, so there goes jack3d and many other supps that use it. In my opinion, which is likely WAY off base, is a relatively healthy person, MLB player who crashed his plane while taken ephedrine and died, is taking a supp they have no business taking, or taking WAY too much of it to be healthy and it screws the rest of us over.

                      Sorry to be the lame duck here, but you guys are taking Bronkaid that you pick up behind the counter from Walgreens for ephedrine? I used to use ephedrine back in the day when it was legal, but haven't since. I wouldn't mind finding it if it were from a good source, although I remember how long it took me to get used to training without it and wouldn't want that again if I couldn't always get a reliable supply. What else is in the Bronkaid & do you have any concerns about using it daily like a supplement, if in fact you use it that often?

                          I'm in Michigan. I liked having it so local and felt better about the product than some stuff coming in bright colored bottles with lightening bolts and crazy names.

                          Oh so true and that's what upsets me the most about all the hassle that they put you through just to buy it...but that's a whole other thread "big brother" topic in itself...

                            Yeah, it's for folks with asthma technically, and acts as a bronchodilator. I like it because it's ephedrine, plus it helps open up my nasal passages.

                              Just an update, maybe to ease a few folks minds. I called Walgreens pharmacy, and they've got it in stock. But...I may be stocking up. You've gotta show ID when buying, wonder if I asked how many I could buy at once if they'd get suspicious, or even care.
