Sad, need help and information about ephedrine for metabolic disorder
I have a metabolic disorder, just diagnosed. I do not burn calories, I pack on weight like crazy and it's getting scary. I have gained 60lbs in about 3 years.--working out and dieting like crazy! I have been given a prescription for ephedrine. You don't actually need an RX but since people use it to make meth, it's good to have one just in case. I will be taking 25 m 3 times per day. It should speed up my metabolism so I stop gaining weight.
My doctor didn't say anything about ephedrine's effect on nursing babies, and I can't find any info online. My doctor (an internist) said that it's like taking Sudafed and will make me feel like I've had one cup too much of coffee.
I don't want to hurt my baby but I can't keep gaining weight. Does anyone know if this amount of ephedrine (not ephedra or that other ma guang or whatever thing) will harm my son? I'm supposed to take it first thing in the morning, then at 4 and 8 hours.
FYI--my 13 month old still nurses frequently but will take whole milk--no problem
