I know it doesn't have pseudoephedrine
Correct, it has another decongestant called phenylephrine. Works in the same way.
WRONG. It does indeed have pseudoephedrine. Gotta get anything with this from behind the counter at the pharmacy.
The other shite you mentioned is in those off-the-shelf medicines that usually have PE affixed to their name. That shite is worthless and absolutely gives me no help. It was originally developed for nasal sprays, I think, and wasn't intended to be taken in pill form. Worthless crap.
