Any “non-drowsy” cold/allergy relief drugz you see on the market almost always list pseudophedrine as an active ingredient. The claim is (as I interpret it) that Sudafed doesn’t turn out the lights for you like, say, codeine.
But EVERY time I take drugz that have Sudafed in them I need to remember not to make any plans because, while my symptoms are gloriously relieved as promised, my eyes get the sleepy burn as if I’d been awake for 20+ hours, I can’t concentrate on anything other than my nap-attack and I am all around rummy until it wears off.
This will happen regardless of the amount of rest I have been getting, so I don’t think I’m tired just because I’m finally not toting around the sleep-depriving cold/allergy gorilla and CAN sleep.
What gives? Any studies indicating Sudafed is MOSTLY non-drowsy? Can I get rich if I can prove it put me to sleep whilst driving home?
