    Ephedra Banned Completely: How Did I Miss This???


    My wife tried to buy Bronkaid today and it's all gone. The bastards snuck in a ban during the holidays. Thanks FDA!

    i read there was just a recall on bronkaid for some packaging mislabeling. primatene is still readily available at the pharmacy so i'm having a hard time believing theres a ban.

    The pharmacist told my wife tonight that all products with ephedra were gone. Did you watch the video linked above? Seems pretty clear to me.

    also fyi that video is referring to than ban of ephedra as a dietary supplement. brokaid is an OTC asthma medicine.

    Yeah, I'm starting to think she ran into a confused pharmacist. She's out now trying a different pharmacy. LOL....I guess in light of all the other great decisions the FDA makes, it's easy to believe that they would pull this ****.
