pseudoephedrine sulfate
Do I need a perscription for claritin d 24 hour? ## @big t, Even though the packaging says "prescription strength", Claritin-D 24 Hour is actually an OTC medication commonly found in many retail pharmacies and even places like Target, Walmart, etc; so you shouldn't have any reason to need a prescription for it in my opinion. However, if this is something that your doctor recommended for you, it may be wise to ask him/her any additional questions pertaining to its use. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Pseudoephedrine Details On a side note, filling out a prescription is your doctor's job (not the patient's) and it would be illegal for anyone else to try and put together a fake one. I hope this info helps!

sudogest 60mg
The top # is the same 44 but bottom # is 113 is this the same thing? For Allergies?? ## The tablet with the 44 over 113 contains 60mgs of Pseudoephedrine, which is a decongestant. It may help with a stuffy nose caused by an allergy, but that is all it will do. Learn more Pseudoephedrine details here. It will not really help much with other allergy symptoms, for that you would need an actual antihistamine. Is there anything else I can help with?

You will also need to provide identification and sign for the purchase. Learn more Pseudoephedrine details here. Is there anything else I can help with?

Solvin Tablet Vs Solvin Cold Tablet
Is there a difference between the compositions of Solvin Tablet vs Solvin COLD Tablet ? If so please discuss. Thks. ## As far as I can tell there is a difference between "Solvin" and "Solvin Cold AF" tablets. Solvin is a cough and cold preparation containing the active ingredients Bromhexine + Pseudoephedrine. This is a mucolytic & decongestant combination used in the treatment of respiratory disorders associated with viscid or excessive mucus. You can learn more about each drug on the page for Bromhexine Details and Pseudoephedrine Details Solvin Cold AF contains slightly different ingredients (Phenylephrine + Chlorpheniramine maleate), but is still used for the same purposes; primarily nasal congestion. I hope this helps!

white with pill 44113 round
Can my 13 year old, 154 pounds take this pill ## This tablet contains 60mgs of Pseudoephedrine and generally, the children's dosage is about half that. Learn more Pseudoephedrine details here. This medication can also cause some potentially serious side effects, such as elevated heart rate and blood pressure, so I wouldn't suggest giving it to a child, unless their doctor approves. Have you consulted their pediatrician?
