A US attorney in Houston has filed a complaint against an ephedra-containing dietary supplement because it is unapproved and misbranded and thus poses a health risk to consumers. The FDA requested that all stocks of the drug be embargoed. The FDA is also warning consumers to stay away from ephedra-containing products. On a website promoting the product, claims are made that the drug can treat persistent flu, fevers, allergy, allergic rhinitis, heart muscle ailments and symptoms of angina pectoris. Research has shown that ephedrine alkaloids can increase blood pressure and place stress on the circulatory system.
