Is there a difference between ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) and pseudoephedrine (ephedrine sulfate)?

Different drugs. They are chemically related, but Pseudoephedrine is safer, has fewer side effects (elevated blood pressure, pulse, increased anxiety etc.) and for the most part, pseudoephredrine and phenylephrine have replaced Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) in most cold medicines. Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) is still around, used in lots of chinese herbal remedies and weight loss drugs. I do not recommend Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) for any of my patients.
