Fun with drugs!

No, not the fun kind of drugs.

I hab a code. Sinus ick, coughing, etc.

As part of this, I've been taking dayquil to keep me functional at work. I noticed that they have a new formula; instead of pseudoephedrine, they've got phenylephrine hydrochloride in them, which is a) a somewhat less good decongestant and b) a much weaker stimulant and c) cannot be used to make crystal meth, which is why the formula changed.

This is pleasing to me, since it means I don't have to worry about it keeping me up. Except that the cold is hitting me in such a way that I'm finding I now need to supplment the dayquil with tea to keep my eyes open. I'm definitely happy to have the option of controlling my stimulant intake, though.

I had to stop all that business with the pseudophedrine and the acetaminophen(sp?), as it was making me feel really sick to my stomach after extended use. I'm trying to make do with Flonase and contact lenses now :)

I hate phenylehprine hydrochoride.. Never did a thing for me.

I'm happy people are addressing the crystal meth issue but wish we could do with without losing effective cold meds!

Yeah, the only reason the PE stuff works for me is my freakish metabolism when it comes to such things.
