My pharmacist says manufacturers have stopped making the combination Pseudoephedrine and Triplodine that I have used for many, many years for allergies and asthma-related bronchial difficulties and at age 62, having tried the less effective and somewhat systemically depressing alternatives I would just as soon keep using what has worked since 1972. I do better with it. Prevalence of Triplodine seems to be the issue instead of the Pesudoepehedrine.
These are brands listed with some amounts of the ingredients you are looking for.
U.S. Brand Names
Actifed® Cold and Allergy [OTC]; Allerfrim® [OTC]; Allerphed® [OTC]; Aphedrid™ [OTC]; Aprodine® [OTC]; Genac® [OTC]; Silafed® [OTC]; Tri-Sudo® [OTC]; Uni-Fed® [OTC]
Pseudoephedrine and Triprolidine
I have heard there are other items with these two ingredients have been discontinued as they (manfacture) now has to prove a real need for the drug to be produced by the FDA.
The drug ingredients contain a factor to make meth. and is on the caution list and that is why it is behind the counter now. That is probably why you can no longer get that form of medicine you had before.
NOTE: It is addictive
