Pseudoephedrine??

After the brilliant debate with ProfessorX about sudafed etc… I got to thinking. Does anyone know of a pseudoephedrine product that does not contain an anti-histamine?

The problem with most of those OTC pills is that they contain an antihistamine which is a downer and the psuedoephedrine which is an upper. When you take it, it makes you feel wacked out. Tired, dizzy and awake. It fuckin sucks. So whats the deal?

Its like smoking Bob Marley shit then taking speed. Freakin sweet.

Sudafed (and generic equivalents) is just pseudoephedrine w/o anti-histamine.
I thought maybe they’d changed the formulation since last I took it, but drugstore.com still lists pseudoephedrine as the only active ingredient in sudafed.

yeah dude, take 2 sudafed and you’re good to go for a while. I acidentally did that forgetting it had pseudoephedrine in it and I was absolutely FLYING on the ice.

Nice, I’ll have to check it out. I wonder if Biotest can market cold pills? :slight_smile:

In the meantime I got some NoDoZ and it works pretty good.

Just as a follow up. If you find that sudafed meets your needs, you may want to stock up now (within federally permissable limits of course). I was just in the supermarket and noticed that they in fact only had the sudafed PE (which doesn’t contain pseudoephedrine) in stock. So, I think one might reasonably wonder how long the original sudafed will be readily available.

This is all academic for me since for allergy reasons I would only take a decongestant w/ an antihistamine and pseudoephedrine isn’t a good stimulant for me since it makes me wired, but not energetic.

Pseudoephedrine is also a fat burner with caffeine. Not as powerful as regular ephedra, though.

robitussun, doesnt contain the liver toxic DXM. But u take a bunch of those fuckers its like acid. Is this what your looking for?

hahaha! awesome.

Shop around for brands. There are plenty without extra ingredients, active ons anyway.

But if your making bulk purchases you might get confused with a meth cook. Here in Aus pseudo containing products are behind the counter and purchases are recorded.

The regular Sudafed is available behind the counter only in the U.S. due to its popularity with meth cooks. The Sudafed PE is a different chemical, but still a dwcongestant only.

are the primatene tablets with ephedrine not available in your area? i don’t know why you guys are even bothering with pseudoephedrine since ephedrine is so much more effective.
