Drug Entry
Ephedrine

Ephedrine was first described in western literature in 1888, as a naturally occurring component of the ephedra plant, along with pseudoephedrine.5 Ephedrine is an adrenergic receptor agonist used for its vasoconstrictive, positive chronotropic, and positive inotropic effects.8 Ephedrine and phenylephrine are still commonly used to treat hypotension but their use in other indications has decreased due to the development of more selective adrenergic agonists.6,7,9

Ephedrine was granted a type 7 FDA Approval on 29 April 2016.9
