I can't be of any help regarding your combo question, except that it's my understanding that if ephedrine is still available, it's in very low doses, I think.
There's a 357 post thread here....
in case you missed it, about HOT-ROX. I think HOT-ROX helps, when used in combination with proper diet, and exercise. I started with 2 per day, the minimum dose, and felt that you could actually undereat quite easily, if you weren't careful. Consider that an endorsement. <
I plan to finish this bottle that way, 2 per day. And probably try some more in the new year, going up to 4 per day.
