    New Tamper Resistant Decongestant Soon To Be Available In St. Louis

    New Tamper Resistant Decongestant Soon To Be Available In St. Louis

    Zephrex-D is a new decongestant medication that will soon be available in St. Louis local pharmacies and is manufactured in Maryland Heights, Mo. Even though Zephrex-D is "pseudoephedrine based" according to, the medication can't be used to produce meth because the product is tamperproof.

    Zephrex-D will be available without the need of a prescription in St. Louis and St. Charles counties according to the article. The tamper resistant decongestant will be available sometime this month.

    Cold medications containing pseudoephedrine are in extremely high demand by those who illegally produce meth and in areas that don't require prescriptions for these medications, sales will continue to increase. According to an article last month on, people who manufacture meth are paying individuals to purchase cold medications in drug stores that don't require prescriptions such as a Walgreens located in Fenton.

    St. Louis County and St. Louis city don't require prescriptions for the purchase of medications containing pseudoephedrine. Hopefully the new tamperproof decongestant Zephrex-D that will be available sometime this month will make a major impact in decreasing the illegal production of meth in St. Louis.
