Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

No using ephedra is not safe since there have been a number of reported complications including heart complications and even death in certain patients when they used this supplement. That is the reason in some countries this is banned. So please avoid using it and consult your doctor regarding your present symptoms and get a prescription for medicines that have been proven to be safe and effective.

Take care.
