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.

This product (Sudafed) worked well for me but is no longer available. Sudafed PE has replaced it and though it looks similar the new formula doesn't work the same. I quit buying it, waste of time and money. I always say, if something works it won't be available for long.

I have been taking Sudafed red pill for 20 plus years it is actually the only thing that I have found that works for my sinuses and upper respiratory problems it does not make me sleepy like a lot of the other medications does I would recommend this to anyone that needs something for sinus and upper respiratory problems I usually get the box of 96 which is cheaper than buying 24 at a time as long as you don't over use not take for longer than you need them you want get to the point where they will not work for you

This works great in regards to my congestion and allergies but I can only take it at night as it causes me to be very tired and unable to focus. I certainly wouldn't trust myself to drive after taking it.

Been taking Sudafed for decades.

Pros: 
it's a tiny little pill

I used Sudafed when I was young, like in my 30s-40s. It did not make me drowsy like some of the other preparations did, and it cleared up the symptoms somewhat. However, now I'm almost 80 and I just started taking it again because my allergies became too severe for any of the natural methods I'd been using to work. Sudafed still works for me and it doesn't have the other negative side effects of the other newer allergy meds. I recommend Sudafed. Especially if you're sensitive to most prescription and over the counter medicine like I am.

Love Sudafed for it's efficacy in treating my allergy symptoms and generally it's my go-to. I haven't taken it in a while, and now I remember why - I'm so tired I can't focus at work. I'll have to try something else.

SLEEPY

Review Text: 
I've used this product for years as it is the only thing that works for me. Lately, like within the past 2-3 months. It has started making me so sleepy I cannot hold my eyes open. I'm wondering if something has changed with the medication to make it do this? Also, what does the HCI stand for?

I've taken Sudafed congestion for years, but I feel like they changed the formula. I take 2 tablets and it doesn't do anything at all.
