Sudafed Overview

Pseudoephedrine (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] in higher doses.[3] It was first characterized in 1889, by the German chemists Ladenburg and Oelschlägel, who used a sample that had been isolated from Ephedra vulgaris by the Merck pharmaceutical corporation of Darmstadt, Germany.[4] The...

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...

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...

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.

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...
