In brief: Cardiac

Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) is a form of adrenalin.
It can cause increase in heart rate, elevated blood pressure and even abnormal heart rhythm. It was associated with the deaths of a major league pitcher and a college football player a few years ago. Just because something is over the counter, it may not always be safe.
