actifed banned

Hi all, I wanted to find out why Actifed (as a brand) got banned by the United and states and JNJ stopped producing it and came up with Sudafed. Is there a reason why? Is there a link to the legal suit that was filed against a JnJ. Any information about why JNJ stopped producing it would help. Thanks ## Yes I know what you mean. Canada too. But it isn't banned really they just make it difficult for the drug store to carry it. And most of them don't so you may as well say they are banned. The excuse is they can make illicit drugs from the pseudoephedrine in it. I can't see a person making drugs is going to paid the high price on these pills. I would think they get it in bulk. And if that was the case then why is there so much junk on the streets still? If anything they are ma...

Wal-Finate D, Chlor-Trimeton, Sudafed Cold & Allergy

I have used products with the combo of Chlorpheniramine Maleate 4 mg, Pseudoephedrine hcl 60 mg, on a spot basis for years. Now I can't find, under any of the brand names, in any of the stores, I have used in the past. They were under control, requiring gov't ID at the Pharmacy counter. Was this not enough? Have they all been banned? Triaminic Cold & Allergy also had same ingredients. ## Their disappearance from pharmacy shelves is due to the restrictions causing severely lowered sales. This caused many companies to switch to using Phenylephrine. Have you tried talking to your doctor about it? I believe they can still prescribe Pseudoephedrine, which may make it easier for you to find. Ref: Medline Plus Pseudoephedrine Pseudoephedrine may cause side effects, such as nausea, ...

red oval gel pill for constipation

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. ## It was most likely just a stool softener, they are commonly given to women after birth, because after labor, many women don't pass stool for a few days, and when they finally do, it can be very hard, so a softener makes it easier. Many of them can be purchased over the counter in most drug stores, and pharmacies, but they may not want you take them, while in the hospital. Ref: Medline Plus Stool Softeners What proc...

blue 44 544 pill

only writing on the pill is 44 544 ## what is this? blue pill says 44 544 ## What is this pill - with 44544 imprint This is a blue pill oblong shape thanks ## Sudafed PE Nighttime Cold 44-544 is blue and oblong ## thank you ## To add some specifics, the ingredients in this tablet are 325mgs of Acetaminophen, 25mgs of Diphenhydramine and 5mgs of Phenylephrine, it used to reliever allergy or cold symptoms, but since the Diphenhydramine can cause drowsiness, it is considered a nighttime formulation. Older formulations of this may have contained Pseudoephedrine, rather than Phenylephrine, so before assuming, please check the information on the packaging. Are there any other questions or comments? More Acetaminophen details are available here, you can find more Diphenhydramine details here...

Can A Urine Test Sent To The Lab Tell If I Took Sudafed Or It Was Used Make Methamphetamine And Did That

I am in pain management and am prescribed oxycodone, lyrica,and elavil. I had a UA last month so I didnt expect one this month so I didn something I have NEVER done before. I tried "meth" or "high speed chicken feed". Plz dont judge me. I know it was stupid and its not something I will ever do again, but I was out of my meds, felt like crap and this was offered to me. I was told it would give me some energy and IF I was tested would only show up as ephedrine because its made with sudafed, and all I had to do was tell my doc I had taken the sudafed. I didnt do much. I did one little line (it burnt too bad) and smoked a few hits from a pipe. But my doc appt. was the next day and he threw a UA on me. Even worse, he told me my prior UA tested positive for klonapin, which I k...

oblong white 204 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...

Does Sudafed come in a bottle

I need Sudafed at night when I wake up with a sinus headache. At my age it is EXTREMELY difficult to open the packaging in the middle of the night. I need these pills in a bottle. HELP! ## Hello, Scott! How are you doing? I have only seen it available in the blister packs, but there is nothing preventing you from opening one, or more ahead of time and putting them in an empty/leftover bottle. It is not illegal to do so, just make sure to keep them out of the reach of any pets, or young children that might be around. It would also be wise to make sure to label the bottle accordingly, perhaps you could write over a pre-existing label with a Sharpie? The FDA warns that it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, insomnia, and nervousness. Are you on any other medications? ## Than...

Sudafed or Claritin pill markings

Hi... I need to know if Sudafed or Claritin have markings on their pills? A friend gave me them and said they were a decongestant such as Sudafed or Claritin but I am unsure if the product is Tylenol or something else? Please help. ## They might have markings, depending on the manufacturer. Can you please post back with more details, such as any markings on them? That is what would enable me to identify a medication for you. Thank you! The FDA lists the typical side effects of decongestants as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, nervousness, and dry mouth.

what over the counter medication can cause false positives

I am clean but probation says i tested positive for Methamphetamine. what med or combination could have caused it? ## I have heard that sudafed (pseudo ephedrine) can cause false positives for meth. Google it and see what you come up with but I have heard this more times than I can count. I don't have any experience since I never take cold/sinus medication. Too many I am allergic to so I stay away from all of them. Good luck and let me know what you find out. It's crazy, but it seems the more "scientifically correct" these drug screens get the more false positives come back for various drugs. Its not fair to a lot of people and you would THINK your doctor would know about other drugs that can generate false positives.....but, they don't seem to know or they just don...

Gx ex3

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...

positive reading for methamphetamine

Hi, can sudafed give a positive reading for methamphetamine? I was drug tested and methamphetamine was found. I don't use the drug at all. I am prescribed dexamphetamine for adhd and have been taking sudafed for 2 years when needed for my sinus troubles.

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

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

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...

'abnormal' Sudafed Purchasing restrictions

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...
