Ephedra Supplement Beyond Expiration Date

I was cleaning out my supplement cabinet and found a sealed can of Rage. Rage is a powdered supplement that contains Caffeine, Ephedra, Ginseng, Synephrine and a few other things to give you a boost of energy. I used to love the stuff but I have pretty much stopped using ephedra since I took my last Ripped Fuel a few years ago.

Anyway. I have had this can of Rage for at least 4 years. (When were Ephedra supplements banned?). Is it safe to take even though it is beyond its expiration date? Other than the heart attack thing. Is potency the only thing affected? Any help is appreciated.
