How Many Boxes Of Sudafed Can I Buy


Yes, Sudafed PE is different from Sudafed. Sudafed contains the active ingredient Pseudoephedrine, while the active ingredient in Sudafed PE is Phenylephrine. In response to the issue of misuse of pseudoephedrine-containing products, many companies are voluntarily re-formulating their products to exclude phenylpropanolamine, ephedrine, and pseudoephedrine.

In response to the misuse of methamphetamine, many state governments have issued regulations controlling the sale of these products. This should not effect the restrictions already placed in your state.

Yes, with this new law there will be limits on the number of tablets of ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, or phenylpropanolamine that can be purchased in a 30-day period. As there are many different dosages and formulations of these products, you should ask your pharmacist how much you will be allowed to purchase over a 30-day period for specific product you use.

If you have a runny nose and run to the store to purchase a decongestant, don't be too surprised if a detective shows up at your door shortly thereafter. Ever since a federal law went into effect that regulates pseudoephedrine, tracking systems have begun to pop up in local pharmacies, reports the Associated PressSince the law went into effect in 2006, pseudoephedrine, a key ingredient in the manufacture of methamphetamine, has migrated behind the counter at pharmacies. Customers must show photo ID to buy the decongestant, and the legal limit for purchases is 9 grams per month - roughly the equivalent of two 15-dose boxes of 24-hour Claritin D, or three 10-dose boxes of Aleve Cold & Sinus, or six 24-dose boxes of Sudafed.

Pseudoephedrine is an active ingredient in many medicines that relieve nasal congestion caused by colds, allergies and hay fever, MedlinePlus, an online health information resource run by the National Library of Medicine, says. Products that contain pseudoephedrine include any Sudafed product not branded as PE, along with other medicines such as Claritin-D, Aleve-D Sinus and Cold and Mucinex D.

According to the law, customers are restricted to purchasing no more than 3.6 grams of products containing pseudoephedrine per day, and no more than nine grams over a 30-day period. A person could buy one box of Sudafed Sinus 12 Hour Pressure + Pain to reach the daily limit, or could buy two 48-count boxes and one 24-count box of Sudafed Sinus Congestion to purchase exactly 3.6 grams of Sudafed.

When allergies run amuck or cold and flu season begins, many patients run to the pharmacy and reach for some easy over-the-counter relief. There are many options when it comes to the nasal decongestant medications but there is one treatment many swear by, Sudafed, also known as pseudoephedrine.

In February, CVS set new pseudoephedrine purchase limits that are more restrictive than those under West Virginia law. CVS customers can buy no more than 3.6 grams of the cold medication each month, and no more than 24 grams, or about 10 boxes, per year.

On Saturday, March 2, Burroughs Wellcome Companyrecalled all boxes of SUDAFED R 12-Hour in the United Statesand notified the public of the potential cyanidecontamination of those capsules.Reported by: J Howard, MD, Pierce County Medical Examiner'sOffice, Tacoma; TH Pouw, MD, Olympia; J Arnold, ThurstonCounty Coroner's Office, Olympia; B Logan, Washington StateToxicology Laboratory, Seattle; JM Kobayashi, MD, StateEpidemiologist, Washington Dept of Health.
