From the Paper:

"Abstract
The current study examined the effects of ephedrine on weight loss in a sample of 40 overweight late adolescent females. While ephedrine has been shown to suppress eating in rats, it is not clear as to whether or not this drug is an effective means of weight loss in humans. In the current study, a test group of 20 participants took ephedrine for two months, whereas a control group of 20 participants took a placebo over the same two months. The results revealed no effect of ephedrine on weight loss in this sample. The implications of the findings are discussed in terms of future research on ephedrine."
