Cold Medicine Prescriptions?

In January, the Indiana General Assembly will be introducing a bill that will require everyone to have a prescription to purchase any type of medicine that contains pseudophedrine. While pseudophedrine is a key component in the manufacturing of methamphetamine, it is also used in many over the counter cold remedies, including Sudafed, ClaritinD, and several versions of Tylenol, Advil, and Aleve. Current law places limits on the quantity a person can purchase each time and in a certain time period, as well as puts the consumer in a multi-state database where they can be tracked with their ID.
