Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments It's good practice to monitor side effects of herbal drugs, but I read the article about the side effects of ephedra and missed a subdivision of serious side effect versus non serious or lastng side effects versus non lasting side effects. It ' s the easy way just to sum up the total amount but it doesn't tell you anything about danger using ephedra products. If you would do the same for registered medication no one would dare to take any medication at all anymore. So I do't think the story is complete yet and it's to early to abandon ephedra and just forget about it's benfits.
