Just to clarify. Somebody who has high blood pressure should NOT take an ECA stack? I am thinking about it, but I have high blood pressure. Generally people who take this stack are obese. and Generally obese people have higher B.P. so should I avoid this stack for that reason? Or would it be worth a shot for a week.
I have a dr on campus I can go to weekly to moniter BP. I went in today for a test, and mentioned ephedrine. He said not good idea, but he also said it is illegal in Oregon and is considered a controlled substance if u have more than 9g. (Oregon has a huge Meth problem) which may explain why I couldnt find Vasopro in any of my pharmacies, and when I asked for it they looked at me weird.[/quote]
Technically, that is the medically recommended answer. ECA stacks, according to most studies, raises BP for 2-4 weeks before it tends to normalize.
It also depends on how fast and how high you up the dosage.
It also depends on how high your BP is at present and what you would do to ensure it is controlled while taking E/C.
Overall if this is for fat loss, HOT-ROX would probably be a lot better unless you have problems controlling food intake. If this is the case E/C might be a better option since studies show that the vast majortity of weight lost due to E/C is brought on by its anorectic effects and not its thermogenic effects, which are pretty low. Mental boost maybe?
The doc is right still, doctors err on the side of caution, a do no harm kinda thing.
