Forget it, I've tried Ephedrine and it did help for weight loss in combination with caffeine, but anxiety got worse.

Question, were you prescribed Ephedrine? And if so, what for?

Would you consider it a good weight loss drug? How would you rate it compared to Topamax in its weight loss abilities?

In combination with caffeine it's a effective drug for weight loss, but I think their are safer agents available. I think the best drugs for weight loss are combinations of Bupropion with Naltrexone or Zonisamide/Topiramate.
