Dear Ronell
If this product does contain ephedrine then it can cause a variety of negative side-effects such as insomnia, tremors, palpitations, psychotic reactions, etc, etc, and you can become dependent so that you will require more and more to achieve the same boost that ephedrine gives you. If the product contains ephedra then you should keep in mind that diet products containing this substance have been banned in most other countries.
The effects should wear off after about a week or so. The long-term effects of being dependent on the appetite suppressing effect and the 'high' such products give you, may take longer.
Take care
