Most cold meds out on the shelf are made with phenylepherine which is different from pseudoephedrine. To get products with pseudoephedrine, you have to ask the pharmacist or pharmacy counter and present ID to purchase because purchase amounts are limited to sell to any one person. So many products, to stay out on the shelves, were reformulated with phenylepherine so almost anything you see on the shelves, in the US anyway, will be phenylepherine.
