  • Ephedrine and bad family heart history?

    I was wondering since my family has a history of heart attacks and such if ECA would be dangerous for me to use? I have used it before without any problems. I know taking prescribed dosages it is safe but still w/ a history like this I tend to wonder. I have the straight ephedrine caps.

    First I would ask, what were the ages of those with the heart attacks? vs your age today? Second, are you doing anything different lifestyle wise than those with the conditions..A lot of things come into play here..

        I'm no doctor but we all know smoking is just a time bomb waiting to happen. I think if heart failure is hereditary, smoking just expotentiates the problem!

        Both your Dad and Uncle are younger than I am (now). I use ECA ALL the time (prior to workouts). I didn't think there was any history of heart problems on either side of my family. About a month ago, my dad had a double by-pass - he's 78. He was a HEAVY smoker from teenager until about 40 - that's a HELL OF A LONG TIME.

          I know that smoking does make it a million times worse but I was just wondering if it was safe even though the problem exists in the family you know. Thanks for the replies!

            I think it would be a risk. If you have a family history of the problem, even considering the risk factors that aggravated the condition, you would still be playing with fire. One cycle will probably not do anything dramatic to you but you might want to take a before and after ECG to see what, if anything, goes amiss.
