USING PSEUDOEPHEDRINE RESPONSIBLY

WHY PSEUDOEPHEDRINE IS REGULATED

Pseudoephedrine, an active ingredient in some cold, allergy, and sinus products, can be chemically processed into methamphetamine (commonly known as meth). The illegal use of meth has increased in recent years, prompting Congress to pass the Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2006 (CEMA). The objective of the law is to eliminate the use of pseudoephedrine in the illegal production of meth. By law, products containing pseudoephedrine must now be sold behind the pharmacy counter and through online retailers who must meet certain requirements.

Note that products containing pseudoephedrine remain available without a prescription in most states.

Works like it says

Review Text: 
I use this every time I get a sinus headache and it works great. It's the only OTC sinus medicine that works well for me.

Sudafed is only product out there that doesn't cause me to go to sleep at wheel. Every once in awhile I'll try a generic/house brand and even though it states same ingredients on most I can tell a slight difference. I have a continual problem so have to take it all the time so the difference is worth it to me.

Works great but I'll stick with the house brand

Review Text: 
Yes, this works great, but I can get the same result with the store brand with the same active ingredients. So, if you don't care about the money, go for it. For me, I'll stick with the house brand.

Sudafed works! The other cold medicines did not clear out the congestion, With Sudafed I can breath through my nose again. This is the only thing that gives me relief from a cold. You do have to go to the pharmacy counter and request, but no big deal.

quite simply the drug is too strong!

Review Text: 
I took the 120 mg extended release tablets because I had a bad cold with stuffy nose and sneezing along with mild fever. I would recommend people not take this product because it was too strong. Within the first hour i became uneasy and there was pressure building up on my head. This pressure continued for hours. When i tried to walk i felt nauseated and had to lay down. I would recommend people avoid the maximum strength drug.

I have chronic vasomotor rhinitis, along with mild hay fever and mild dust mite allergies, so my nasal passages are congested most of the time, to varying degrees. I use Sudafed when I'm so badly congested that I can no longer breath through my nose. It always does the job nicely, allowing me to breath as a human, rather than a fish. For me, however, I have found that its beneficial effects begin to wear off after about 8 hours rather than 12. Nevertheless, it works better than anything else, and I rarely need to take more than two in a row anyway.

I have used Sudafed Decongestant for decades. Now, they've taken it off the market in Canada. This is infuriating.
