Aside from the numbers, what is the difference between Sudafed L432 and Sudafed 44 112? My pharmacist gave me a packet that describes the pills inside as being a "RED, ROUND-shaped TABLET imprinted with L432 on the front." BUT the pills I got had 44 over 112 instead of L432. Is it the same thing or did they give me the wrong pills?

@Ade,

Both pills in question are identified as Pseudoephedrine hydrochloride 30 mg (the generic of Sudafed). However, because each tablet is manufactured by a different company, not only is there going to be a slight variation of inactive ingredients (binders/fillers), but also since the medication is in generic form, it is permitted by the FDA to be allowed to contain as much as 20% more or less of the actual active ingredient as well.

For some people, these subtle differences are the equivalent of taking a completely different medication that may be absorbed and metabolized differently within your body (causing: side effects, allergic reactions, increased or decreased potency, etc). Not everyone experiences these effects with generics, but it's best to be completely aware of what you're putting in your body.

You can learn more about this drug on the page for Pseudoephedrine Details

I hope this helps!

I have anxiety attacks, but I haven't had one in a few weeks. I forgot to mention that to my doctor when she subscribed Sudafed for me. I've got the 44 112 pills. I'm afraid to take it, but am getting desperate to get rid of my sinus and ear pain. Should I just buckle down and take it or ask for something weaker to take?
