    Used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 5,000 years as an asthma treatment, ephedrine finds its place in modern medicine to treat the same respiratory condition. Look for ephedrine as an ingredient in prescription inhalers used by asthmatics to relieve the symptoms of an asthma attack. Once you inhale the ephedrine, it expands your lungs air passages and allows you to breathe easier.


    Ephedrine is still used by doctors in patients during surgery: general anaesthetics can cause a dangerous drop in blood pressure (known as hypotension). Ephedrine can counter this by increasing blood pressure.


    This drug should only be used under the supervision of a doctor or suitably qualified medical professional. The reason it is no longer licensed as a diet supplement is that many dieters died after long term use of the drug. In the short term, it can cause 'the jitters' and anxiety, shivering, a racing pulse and a heart arrhythmia. It usually also causes a loss of appetite, and hence it prior use as a diet pill.
