With what herb we can replace HERBA EPHEDRAE -- MA HUANG -- 黄 ?

In the formula XIAO QING LONG TANG - pC龙汤 - MINOR BLUE GREEN DRAGON DECOCTION ?

HERBA EPHEDRAE now is illegal in Europe.

May be we can use western herb FLOS TILIAE , which is used as diaphoretic in Westen folk medicine ?

Thank you in advance for your kind reply!

FLOS TILIAE seems similar with Chinese ephedra in treating upper respiratory symptoms, but the later herb may be more accentuated in its efficacy.
