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.
