[Dec 14] Ephedrine, the Sydney (in) famous drug, still being used by athletes

Marius Urzica is among the members of the new Romanian Anti Doping Agency which just released the 2005 Report; no gymnasts on the "black list" of the athletes being caught on drugs.

In the previous 2004 Report (released earlier this year, see Ephedrine list usage), the ephedrine was still among drugs being used by some Romanian athletes (not from gymnastics, but from other sports). The ephedrine detection was the reason why former gymnast Andreea Raducan was asked to return one of her Sydney medal back.

Thanks to a US gymnastics fan, "allyvise" , here are some infos about ephedrine and its stimulant properties.
"There have also been reports of off-label uses of pseudoephedrine for its stimulant properties. Some patients, long-distance truck drivers for example, have reportedly used pseudoephedrine as a stimulant to increase their state of alertness/awakedness. It is doubtful that pseudoephedrine would be of significant benefit, except in sensitive-individuals, due to its minimal effect in the central nervous system (see Mode of Action above). Nevertheless, such misuse of pseudoephedrine has been associated with stimulant dependence." References:
