Our expert says:
Ephedrine or synephrine (herbal products) or norepinephrine does have this effect of giving people a 'high' and suppressing appetite. It is, however, associated with a long list of very negative side-effects (palpitations, cardiac disturbances, problems with urination, tremor, anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, psychoses, dry mouth, etc) and because its energy and appetite suppressant effects wear off over time, users start taking larger doses to achieve the same effect. It is therefore addictive and is classified as a banned substance in sport. Please think carefully before you start doping with this chemical as it can have very far-reaching effects. Discuss this with your pharmacist and check the side-effects in the package inserts of drugs that contain epinephrine.
Take great care
