    1. Alternative is probably based on phenylephrine. It has been been out for a while, so expect to see a generic before too long. It is reputed to be as effective as psuedoephedrine and slightly safer (fewer side effects).

      All this is going to do is drive psuedoephidrine off the US market, which may be the actual intent of the legislation in the first place. Of course, the pharmacuetical companies will still sell it overseas, which in effect will make CM an import drug once again. Since the advent of small meth labs using the red phosphorous or other processes has been a large part of the reason that the the problem of the violent meth gangs running out of Mexico has declined so precipitously (ain’t competative market pressures amazing?), expect that situation to heat back up rather quickly.

To me this is completely rediculous because you can still buy the brand name in a 10 pack but it is more expensive than 2 of the generic five packs. So irritating!
