Sudafed Overview

Pseudoephedrine (/sjudo.fdrn/ or /sjudofdrin/; PSE) is a sympathomimetic drug of the phenethylamine and amphetamine chemical classes. It may be used as a nasal/sinus decongestant, as a stimulant, or as a wakefulness-promoting agent.[2] The salts pseudoephedrine hydrochloride and pseudoephedrine sulfate are found in many over-the-counter preparations, either as a single ingredient or (more commonly) in combination with antihistamines, guaifenesin, dextromethorphan, and/or paracetamol (acetamin...

red oval gel pill for constipation
Post a Reply
I'm looking for a red pill about the size of a Sudafed pill for constipation. I was given this pill when my first child was born to have a bowel movement after the nurse put me through other painful procedures, I'm expecting my 2nd child in May & I refuse to do those procedures again & would like to know what that pill is & how to get it. Thank you.

hi! what are these pills? brown, circle, barrel, logo GX / EX3??? please, help ## Hi i found the exact same pill, did you manage to find out what it is? ## hi. yes, i actually did - i found out it is "sudafed" (for sure) ...and sorry for that late reply. i hope it was helpful. bye ## Thanks, yes that definitely helps! ## It's an HIV treatment drug, however it is also used as a PEP drug, which is a preventive drug to be administered within 72 hours of being exposed (or possibly exposed ) to HIV or AIDS during intercourse, so the person the pill possibly belongs to does not necessarily have AIDS/HIV. ## Do you have any link to back up what this drug is? What is the source of your information, please? Any help appreciated, especially when others are saying it is "sudafed...

if i am taking amox clav can also take sudafed

I normally take AleveD sinus&cold for my nasal congestion. I have not taken any since I started taking Amox/K Clav a couple days ago, but now my runny nose is driving me crazy. What are some possible side effects and risks to combining them? ## Hello, Kandie! How are you? I didn't find any interactions or problems listed between these medications, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. The FDA lists the typical side effects for this antibiotic as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

sudafed original
1 Reply RSS
Hi I am basically looking for the original sudafed as I dont handle the sudafed PE and these are the ones that do the job for me. Also the generic brand equivalent to the sudafed original are also just as good. ## I had the same issue with the newer, version on the shelf. I ended up purchasing the Walgreens generic version of the original Sudafed after finding out the over the counter is not the same as the original. I get the 4hr red pill and it works fine. You have to ask the pharmacist for it as it is no longer on the shelf and you have to sign for it.

sudafed 12 hour
1 Reply RSS
I was informed from a co worker that I could not purchase another box of Sudafed 12 hour for another month. New state law. It is the only product that works for my sinus problems & I do take 2 @ a time. One just doesn't work. Is this true? ## Hello, Stephanie! How are you? What state are you in? I'll gladly research this for you, but I need to be able to narrow it down, a little. Did you try asking your pharmacist? The FDA classifies this medication as a decongestant and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, insomnia and dry mouth. There is a certain limit on the amount you can purchase each month, so that might be what your coworker is talking about and they just misunderstood. That doesn't mean you can't buy more, b...

small red pill with a triangle and 07 on one side need to find out what it is' ## How small is it? I can't be 100% certain, but this description makes me think of a packet of oral contraceptives I used to take, several years ago. However, I don't have any to compare them to. ## I believe it's a generic of Sudafed. ## Do u have a picture of a generic red sudafed pill?

it is in the 12 hour non drowsey sudafed ## Dude you serious? It is not sudafed lmao, it is generic percocet. You get sudafed for sinus problems and colds like, sinus pressure, sinus headaches and sinus infections. Ive also taken it for my bronchitis. I dont know where you got this info from, but you couldnt be more wrong.. Also Sudafed does not last 12 hours lol the life span of sudafed is from 4 to 6 hrs. Your just giving out bad information, if you dont know what your talking about (Obviously you dont) then dont say anything. Giving bad info on a site like this could be dangerous. It could be powerful medication, and someone comes along like you, and says "u'll be fine its just aspirin". Then that person will overdose because of stupid people who abuse drugs and ruin it f...

'abnormal' Sudafed Purchasing restrictions
2 Replies RSS
Our local Walgreens informed us that Sudafed or their brand Wal-phed could only be purchased if you had an active prescription acct (not for sudafed- just any active prescription) that had been filled within the previous 30 days. They don't accept our insurance, so we have prescriptions filled over at our local Walmart pharmacy. They wouldn't let us buy Sudafed at all because of this! The pharmacy manager told us this was a regional policy due to dirtbag methheads. Is this legal? ## Hello, David! How are you? Yep, they can do that, as long as they apply it across the board to everyone and aren't just singling you out. I think Wal-Mart carries it, so you should be able to purchase it there. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness and insomnia. Is there a...
