smirking half-hawk

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.
