Right, that's how it is here with the over-the-counter version. But if you show your ID to the pharmacist, they'll give you the older kind with pseudoephedrine, with limits to how many pills you can buy. But my point is that the side effects are the same for both versions. I don't understand how it could make someone high without being processed into meth. It's either psychosomatic, or CD really should see the doctor about the side effects she's experienced, because it really shouldn't have that effect.
