Very seldom do I have anything that really pisses me off. For the last 10 to 15 years I have had to show my driver's license and sign for my sinus meds. I use pseudo-ephedrine and NOTHING else really works. I have had trouble with my nose being clogged and drippy all my life, like since I was born I think and never could breathe right. Pseodo Ephedrine opens me up and clears my sinuses very well, and literally nothing else works. Twice now they have told me I "Reached my limit" on how much so I had to wait for it to roll off again before I buy more. The Pharmacist said maybe just a few days, but it was 3 weeks before I got more.
I was taking two 12 hour tablets a day, one in the morning and one at night and felt better for the month I was doing that than I have felt in my entire life. Going from one a day to two a day made a huge difference in my well being. WELL along comes the DEA and changed the rules again. Took me forever to find out the specifics, but now a box of 20 is a months supply! 20 tablets for 30 days, leaving me absolutely miserable, unable to sleep, and grouchy as hell when I don't have them. While I was out the first time this happened I bought the mucinex you can get over the counter (No pseudoephedrine) and it was $22 a box and didn't really work much at all.
This has me fucking pissed! I understand people make meth out of it. I understand there are bad people doing bad things. That is NOT a reason to punish everyone. There is no reason in the world that they should make this limit any less than the way it it supposed to be used on the label, and that is two a day. You can get a doc to prescribe this to you, however, my doc said that since I am on high blood pressure meds, he won't prescribe them for me. ARRRRRGGGGHHH!
