Adderall & Ephedrine

I've been on Adderall (adderrall) XR (Just started 25mg) for a few months now. I'm contemplating taking a EC stack for my workouts which consist of Ephedrine and Caffeine. I am wondering if Ephedrine is ok to take Adderall (adderrall). I've heard mixed responses from this and would like to know the truth.

Ephedrine is horrible for diet.    Look up ephedrine, it is no longer legal for diets because of the health risks.     im not an expert on it but i would highly recommend not taking ephedrine till you have looked into it extensively

Ya, I've researched a good amount. From what i've seen, the people that have problems with it have a health problem (heart, blood pressure) or have take too much ("oh, this is a miracle drug, it works good, let me take more and it will work better"). I'm getting my information from professional trainers that have used and worked with this.

I'm still doing research about it, thats why I'm asking about it's interactions with Adderall (adderrall).

do not take it it is addicting and has killed people especially while working out , it speeds up the heart and can cause heart attack that in conjunction with another stimulant adderal more than likely could kill you no joke.

Take your blood pressure after the adderall (adderrall) kicks in. I really wonder why you need the Ephedrine. The Adderall (adderrall) will raise your heart rate. The Ephedrine will raise it higher. You would have to be in fantastic shape to withstand not doing damage maybe even unrepairable damage to yourself. Please be careful. More is not better.

nteractions between amphetamine and Ephedrine (ephedrine)

Moderate Drug-Drug Interaction ephedrine and amphetamine (Moderate Drug-Drug)
MONITOR: Central nervous system (CNS) stimulants, particularly the amphetamines, can potentiate the adrenergic response to pressor agents. CNS stimulants often have peripheral sympathetic activity and can increase blood pressure and heart rate, thus they may have additive effects with pressor agents.

MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised if CNS stimulants are used with pressor agents. Pulse and blood pressure should be closely monitored
