Pseudoephedrine support alert
The Royal Pharmaceutical Society has issued a support alert reminding pharmacists that pseudoephedrine and ephedrine can be used in the illicit production of methylamphetamine (crystal meth). Due to this risk, pharmacists and their staff should continue to be alert to requests for large quantities and abnormally frequent requests for products containing pseudoephedrine or ephedrine. More information is available on the RPS website.
