A sympathomimetic amine known as ephedrine hydrochloride is frequently used as a stimulant, appetite suppressant, concentration help, decongestant, and to relieve hypotension brought on by anesthesia.
Both ephedrine and pseudoephedrine cause blood pressure to rise and have bronchodilating effects, although pseudoephedrine has a much less impact.
Ephedrine encourages modest short-term weight loss, particularly fat loss, although it is unclear what its long-term effects will be.
Ephedrine is an amphetamine replacement and sympathomimetic amine. It shares a molecular structure with epinephrine, methamphetamine, and phenylpropanolamine (adrenaline)
Ephedrine can be used to make methamphetamine by removing the hydroxyl group through chemical reduction since the two substances share a similar structural make-up.
