Yanni, although I am not a medical expert, if you look into the stroke situation regarding PPA, it appears that the main risk was to women, and most likely because PPA was an ingredient in fad weight loss drugs like dexatrim.  Don't discount the PPA idea - it is the reason that I got onto the idea of the MAO A/ MAO B imbalance.  As described above, PPA is related to phenylethylamine.

I was cured when pristiq fix my sleep, all my life is very hard to me wake up in the mornings, after only two days of taking pristiq i started to sleep deeply and like a baby, easy to wake up in the morning, but 50mg of pristiq is too high dose to me, cause me depression and apathy, i was cured only after suspended pristiq, 2 or 3 days after that the sleep effects of pristiq remains in me, ultra low doses was in my blood, i was cured, depression lifted totally and EA too, but after 2 more days when the med isn't anymore in my blood my sleep problems back and EA too, i cant split pristiq because is a extended release pill, i tried another serotonin meds and none of them fix my sleep, i need tried another meds, serotonin can raise dopamine, the brain is very complex, i dont know if i have methylation problems, some people can have low grade depression and they even dont know, serotonin can fix EA in some people, everyone is different, i am very sensitive to meds, lexapro cause me deep depression, apathy and dont fix my sleep, i have a serotonin problem, even very low grade depression can cause EA, you guys with EA are happy? Have good sleep? Have a lot of motivation? Have a good diet? Exercise? So many things can cause very low grade depression, maybe you have it and you dont know it, when i was cured i dont care EA, maybe we are obsessed with it, when i was cured life was worth, without meds right now i am addicted to videogames, lazzy, unmotivated, sometimes i feel tired after eating (maybe i have reactive hypoglycemia), i like watch porn, i dont socialize because i found it bored.

None of our members in countries where cold medicine may legally contain phenylpropanalomine have tried it?  Just be aware of the stroke risk which is evidently why it was banned in the US.  But curious to see if anyone in a country where it is legal finds it effects their EA
