Hi there people. I have asked this question in other forum sites but since I have not got any responses I have decided to try my luck here. So well, I have literally used to have some really really bad allergies. They were so uncontrollable and but that they were requiring weekly injections to be put by my family doctor. This has been many years ago now ago (I mean, it has been back in the late 70s into the early 80s, as you can see roughly 30 years ago and even more). And now, I can remember it very well when I have firstly tried an Actifed and I remember it so well because it has done miracles to me. I didn’t even expected that I am going to get so so good results from using it. my doctor has also been impressed enough by the way it has worked for me to nix the shots (which has been a x mas present early for me back then). To be honest, in fact, I am still hating with passion absolutely any kind of needle.
And so well, my life just cruised along allergy and congestion and runny nose free for many years, a lot of years, until some kind of alchemist has discovered the philosopher’s stone in pseudoephedrine and absolutely every single wannabe with a chemistry set has started to blow themselves up. And this is why, after all of that, there was no more Actifed, or any other type of pseudoephedrine product anymore. At least no more that I could find for a while.
But I do know that you are still able to get the pseudoephedrine and I have and I have tried it out. however it just MUST be the tripolidine in the original formula all along with the pseudoephedrine that has made the big difference. In the past, the walgreens have had a store brand which has been called wal act for quite a while in the past, however they just don’t have it any more.
And now, with all of this being mentioned, could anyone out here people, PLEASE give me at least any hints or ideas if there is the original formula being used in some brand somewhere that could be purchased? If somewhere out there is then I know my doctor would back me up on it and maybe even including giving me a script for getting it.
I was also thinking that I have big doubts that I’m the only one to have to suffer from this. having this said, I think that some other people out there would like to know about this either, and that’s especially if somebody out there with allergies could also benefit as much as I did from getting the original formula. I only have to say to anybody out there that lives and sleeps day in and out with breathing issues, if you have not given the original Actifed at least one try, then you may be suffering for absolutely no reason right now.
Oh darn… I am sounding now as if I am shilling for obsolete OTC drugs, lol. just please help out an old guy like me if you can and I’m going to appreciate it a lot. Thanks in advance.
