I have always had allergies and grew up having bad nights trying to sleep anywhere even close to any kinds of mildew or mold. It was bad enough that when I was in grade school I had to get weekly allergy shots, which I hated.
I am a country boy and was never happier than being in the woods and camping and 'roughing it'. And I always had rough times with my sleeping bags and old mildewy tents. When I was about 16 years old I tried Actifed first time, and from that time on, my breathing issues was over. No more shots and I was cruising to a happy nose breathing, no sweat free breathing life. But THEN the meth users screwed it all up and no more actifed. The original formula was psuedoephedrine and tripolidine (Dont know the specific amount of each per pill, but it was the same forever while they had it)
Then, Actifed changed to new ingredients which does not work for me. I had to get it behind the counter and show ID. Well, that was not much of a hassle, but then there was no more actifed. I am here to tell you that sudafed is not same formula (no tripolidine) Walgreens had for a while their brand called Wal-Act, which was same formula. Happy days again. But soon, now they dont carry it anymore. WHY, Why I say. Doesnt anyone still make the original formula with the psuedo ephedrine and the tripolidine? Am I being weird and overlooking any product that will help as well?
I have tried many, many of the behind the counter, newly controlled psuedoephedrine products, but there is none coupled with the original actifed formula and nothing has worked well for me since.
I am hoping that someone here can shed some light on what happened and why such a popular medicine just up and dissapeared.
I did not know exactly where to stick this thread, so I apologize in advance if misplaced.
