FDA Questioning Cold Drug Ingredients | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Sudafed’s manufacturers recently swithced from pseudoephedrine to phenylephrine after the passage of a new law which required all pseudoephedrine products to be kept behind the counter.  Following the change, researchers at the University of Florida have petitioned the government to examine the new ingredients used in Sudafed, arguing that the new products may not work in adults or even be safe for child consumption.
