Cold and Allergy season is upon us, but due to governmental policy changes in recent years, a common over-the-counter medication many of us are familiar with, Actifed, is no longer available. Luckily, generic alternatives that vary slightly from the original formula are available in products, such as Quality Choice Cold and Allergy Medication. The formula modification has been performed in response to the Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2005 and has affected a number of national brands.
What is the Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2005?
Due to the increased manufacture and use of the illegal drug Methamphetamine, products containing chemicals like pseudoephedrine, found in the original Actifed formula, have been changed to behind-the-counter medications. This means that although they may be distributed without a prescription, the sale of such products must be logged including the buyer's name, quantity, date, address, time, and valid identification must be presented.
In response to these policy changes, though Actifed is no longer available, companies such as Quality Choice have designed a product that will meet FDA regulations while still providing relief from allergy symptoms. Quality Choice Cold and Allergy medication features the same 24 count package with decongestants and antihistamines to relieve the toughest symptoms, just without pseudoephedrine.
How does Actifed Availability affect you?
As there is a reliable alternative to the original Actifed formula, there is no reason to suffer from difficult cold and allergy symptoms. Even better yet, the generic alternative costs anywhere from 25-50% less than the original product making it a more cost effective solution.
