how risky? enough such that down here in the States the FDA has banned sales of ephedra containing products.

<snip> raises the bodys core temperature, which can lead to irregular heartbeat, insomnia and elevated bp. being a stimulant, its energy-boosting effects can dangerously mask signs of fatigue and dehydration. <snip>

<snip> ephedrine and pseudoephedrine (active components from chinese herb ma huang)are well-established sympathomimetics with potentnon-selective agonist effects on alpha, beta-1, and beta-2 receptors. <snip>

<snip> Repeated doses of ephedrine may display tachyphylaxis, since it is an indirectly acting sympathomimetic amine which will deplete noradrenaline from the nerve terminal. Thus repeated doses result in less noradrenaline being released than the initial dose.<snip>

<snip> Patients w/ the following conditions should not use ephedra: hypertension, heartdisease, depression, anxiety, insomnia, anorexia/bulimia, hyperthyroidism, narrow-angleglaucoma, urinary retention, and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), pregnancy, stroke, asthma, thyroid or kidney disease, diabetes or prior seizures. <snip>
