Appetite suppression

Is there something that can be used in place of ephedrine/norephedrine for appetite suppression that will allow for receptor recovery? I need to take some time off the ephedrine, as I don’t get the ‘kick’ any more, but find myself ravenous all day without it. I can get my hands on most prescription meds, so that is not an issue - just looking for some advice as to the most effective/cheapest/safest.

5-HTP. I’ve only had it in the new MD6, never by itself, but man, it works great. Here’s an article to check out: http://www.testosterone.net/html/body_1415htp.html

If you want to go totally natural then go with a fiber supplement. This a natural appetite suppresant and it also helps keep your insulin levels steady.
