See below: Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) stimulates beta-adrenergic receptors and releases norepinephrine. Adverse reactions are insomnia, nausea, headaches , dizzines, s anxiety , palpitations , tachycardia. The question is why are you taking it.? This is not a drug that you should be doing without physicians oversight. Please see your physician.
