Ephedra - andreneline - anxiety - link
Hi doc,
I read that andrenaline and ephedra cause the same reactions in the body.
Could it be that after quiting taking ephedra for many years as a training supplement, your body will compensate for the deficiency by producing andrenaline? Could this cause anxiety in turn?
It definitely sounds and feels like it could be true. The anxiety started more or less , extept for the ocasional attack, when the Ephedra stopped.
Anxiety and the "climb the walls out" feeling of ephedra are VERY close. With Ephedra i just used to feel in control.
Thanks for your help.

Anxious, it sounds like your symptoms might be due to withdrawal and should pass within 2-3 weeks after quitting. If it doesn’t, the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
