I always found Actifed to be the only cold medecine that worked for me. Now I cant find it at any of my local drug stores even behind the counter. Is it still available? Even the pharmacist I talked to thought it was on the shelf and then realized they quit carrying it.

Go to a local pharmacy and have them order Aprodine. It is original formula actifed. I pay $2.75 for 24 tablets.

Just came from Walgreens and they no longer carry Wal-act. Sorry to see that as it was the only OTC med that worked on my allergies.

Walgreens carries WalAct (red box - 48 tablets - behind the pharmacist's counter), which is an exact generic substitute for Actifed. It is displayed behind the register (not to be confused with what is NOW sold as Actifed - which doesn't work for me - for which you bring a card from the over-the-counter section of the store to the register); you must ask the pharmacist for WalAct (in some cases, point it out), show ID, and sign for it. I think I paid $7.99 plus tax when I bought some a few days ago. They limit the amount you can buy (because the ingredients can be used to make illegal street drugs if obtained in large quantities); I believe it's one box every two weeks or so. If you don't want to make several trips, bring your significant other along who has a driver's license and just go once a month. As a warning, though, sometimes they run out at the height of allergy season.

Old formula actifed is no longer made, but there are 2 alternatives. Wal-Act at Walgreens. Or have your pharmacist order aprodine made by Major Pharmaceuticals. It is the same formula as the original Actifed1

See 2nd reply down about Wal-Act. And a number of previous posts about this product from Walgreens. It is Walgreens' version of the brand, Actifed. Try it & see.

Hello...we just took a trip to Italy last summer and the Alitalia lost our main suitcase for 3 days in the Naples airport. We were forced to buy basics in Sorrento and I ended up having to take Actifed because there was no such thing as "little red Sudafed" like I took one of every night before bed. Yes, one of the ingredients in Actifed is the main ingredient in Sudafed (the original) and the drug dealers use it to make methamphetamine. It's a huge problem here in Indiana. I took 2 of the package of 12 and the remaining 10 have been lying here on the dresser in the box for a year, I'm ashamed to say! They are plentiful in Italy, the packaging is all in Italian and it looks to be a Johnson & Johnson company and manufactured in France.

Aprodine which contains the exact same ingredients as Actifed is still readily available.

Thanks for this 'heads up' on Wal-Act. The product is kept behind the counter & you need to provide an ID & to sign for it. But it doesn't require a prescription & it works well. 48 pills for c $7.

You can go to the States to a Walgreen and get the behind the counter WalAct which is the same and works just as well. We try to go to the States twice a year to get four boxes of it.

Even expired mid 2000s actifed works better than anything else out there for me.. Found some in a drawer two years ago.. but now down to my last one.. am suffering in the middle of the night in Brussels and fly back to Canada tomorrow.. Is there anything in Canada at this point (2015) that hits the actifed formula and effectiveness? I would like to think I haven't lost this relief forever unless I order online or drive to the states.

Aprodine is a generic form of actifed. You can usually have a smaller pharmacy order it for you, but you are limited to how many in a month plus you have to sign for it.

The same formulation is now called aprodine by major pharmaceuticals . It is by prescription only, but is about 10$ for 100 tablets.

Actifed is not available in my area as well. So disappointed. However, sharing some good news for my fellow sufferers. Hydroxyzine is almost better. Yes, it's an Rx, however it is inexpensive. I had a severe case of hives and it was like magic. Being allergic to mold and dogs, and benadryl gives my horrible side effects, almost as bad as the symptoms. Hydroxyzine is excellent. I have no side effects to it even after 1 pill a day for about 6 years.

The generic substitute for Actifed which is sold in Idaho is called Aprodine - with the exact same ingredients (Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride, Triprolidine Hydrochloride) as the original actifed.

No Actifed at Walmart!! The ONLY place I've seen it is at the Walgreen stores, behind the pharmacy counter.

Walgreens is still carrying Wal-Act. Same ingrediants of old formula Actfed. In Wisconsin and other states. May not be, or have card at shelves. You need to go to pharmacy and get it. Usually visible behind the cashier. Need to present ID as you can only buy so much in a time frame. Each US state may be different. Just got some yesterday 8/30/2014.

In the UK it is called Actifed Plus and you can get it from most chemists. Only one box of 12 at a time. Of course, if you are in a place like Central London there is practically a Boots every block: the number of boxes you can purchase per day is limited only by how much walking you are prepared to do. The formula is the same...as is the manufacturer.
