I am considering dipping into my stash of ephedra for use as a decongestant (I have severe allergies which immediately develop into raging sinus infections). I actually get a better decongestant effect and less jitters and anxiety with ephedra than with OTC pseudoephedrine. I have to use very high dosages to get a decent decongestant effect, though. I dread coming off either one of them. Is there any way to avoid the usual weeks of lethargy? Of course I try tapering off, but I still feel like a dead person for several weeks.
Or, are there any effective decongestants? (not oxymetazoline HCl)
