Ephedrine is a stimulant that is used as an ingredient in diet pills, illegal recreational drugs, and legitimate over-the-counter medications to treat congestion and asthma. Ephedrine or ephedra has a chemical structure similar to amphetamine. Ephedrine can produce the following adverse reactions: heart attack, stroke, tachycardia, paranoid psychosis, depression, convulsions, coma, fever, vomiting, palpitations, hypertension, and respiratory depression.

Because of its stimulating effect on the nervous system, ephedra can be found in some popular weight loss and energy products. For dieters it suppresses the appetite and stimulates the thyroid gland which stimulates metabolism. Recently ma huang has been the subject of scientific research for obesity because of its thermogenic fat-burning effect on dietary intake. Ephedra can cause peripheral vasoconstriction, elevation of blood pressure and cardiac stimulation, and is often combined with other tonic herbs to help counteract these effects.

To date, the FDA has reported approximately 40 deaths and over 1000 injuries linked to Ephedrine. Ephedrine has been frequently linked to episodes of anxiety, fever, vomiting, sleeplessness, migraines, memory loss, muscle injury, and high blood pressure. More serious side effects include seizures, paranoid psychosis, convulsions, comas, heart arrhythmias heart attacks, intracranial bleeding, kidney disease, strokes and death.
