None that I know of: Firstly, ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) is no longer available in the US market, because of serious side effects - elevated pulse, blood pressure and risk of stroke. Same is true with PPA (phenylpropanolamine), a similar decongestant. Am not aware of any combination medications currently available. In the 1950s the combination was used in the treatment of allergies. There may still be combination products in Canada.

What are medical used of ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate)?

Dr. Karl Spector
Addiction Medicine 25 years experience
Stimulant: Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) is an amphetamine-like substance that has been used medically for asthma, as a decongestant, cold/flu symptoms, and to aid in weight loss. It has been banned in the us since 2004 because it can dangerously raise blood pressure, cause heart rhythm problems and, in rarely, even death. There are too many risks and as there are so many other meds to use instead, to use it any more.
