Our expert says:
It is generally not a good idea to use a medication that is indicated for one condition (sinusitis) to treat another condition (overweight). Products that contain ephedrine, pseudo-epinephrine or synephrine, can be potentially harmful. These components can cause a long list of negative side-effects (dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, psychotic reactions, etc). These products have been banned in many countries because of their negative side-effects, which include addiction and dependence. Rather be sensible and lose the weight with a balanced, energy-reduced diet and aerobic exercise, esp if you only have 3 kg to lose.
