Ephedra side effects

Precautions:

A handful of people have died over the past few years from abusing ephedra products, prompting the FDA to issue warnings against their use and to consider banning the substance entirely. Even though Germany's Commission E has approved ephedra for respiratory problems, the concern is well-founded. The herb and its extracts are potentially addictive, and they can disrupt regular heart rhythm, induce cardiac arrest, and raise blood pressure. They're likely to make you irritable, nervous, and nauseous. They're also very likely to make you sweat profusely, decrease your appetite, and prevent you from falling asleep. Anyone with high blood pressure, anorexia or bulimia, or diabetes-induced glaucoma should be particularly cautious. Actually, everyone should be cautious: Do not take this herb or its derivatives.
