    I have mixed feelings about this. We have a local problem with speed (the drug, that is). So, to fight it, they want to limit its sale to people. OK, meth is a problem, something has to be done....

    on the other hand......

    I suffer from sinus headaches, and I have to tell you, pseudophedrine (aka Sudafed) is an essential part of my arsenal.... I pop at least two pills a week... when the weather changes in the spring and fall it's more like two pills a day....

    I prefer nyquil nighttime severe formula. It rocks anytime of day, sniffles or none. It's like being on a wonderful, wonderful cloud. Is this "abuse" or "use"?

    That's been the way it is here for about a year now.. Only serious problem? I live in a small town - NOTHING is available "after hours". Grocery store pharmacies are locked up tight by 7 or 8pm. Walgreens is closed by 9pm. Even the Super Walmart pharmacy is closed by 7ish. The stuff they have on the shelves to "replace" it, thus making *something* readily available sucks, and doesn't work. Sudafed is a standard with my allergies... But, I went a couple weeks ago looking for plain old Tylenol Cold & Flu, and I couldn't even get that. Locked up. But they had some childrens Dimetapp available. If you try and plan ahead by buying a few boxes, they look at you like you're some common criminal. Hate to say it, but 2 boxes doesn't last me all that long, and that's what you're limited to. :(

    That is "use". Abuse is if you call it names.

    It's all pulled off the shelves here.The only "cold" medicine on the shelves is the cough and chest decongestant stuff,everything else you have to ask the pharmicist for. It's not to big of a deal here tho,our Walgreens is open 24 hours. I'm glad they are to. I have a problem with my ears not draining right and it gets very painful....Sudafed is a must when that happens.

    Right after they moved everything,I went into Bigg's to get some decongestant and didn't realize they had moved it all. I thought geese,there must be a hell of a lot of people sick right now!!! :huh:
