How is Zephrex-D Different From Other Pseudoephedrine Products?

Traditional pseudoephedrine products provide unsurpassed congestion relief, but are often unfortunately and easily used for illicit meth making. Zephrex-­D is the only product on the market that offers the powerful congestion relief of pseudoephedrine and is highly meth resistant.

Zephrex-­D cannot effectively be used to produce meth by any of today’s clandestine meth making processes. Only Zephrex-­D prevents meth making in the majority of today’s meth labs (one pot process) and significantly inhibits all of today’s other illicit meth making processes.

How much meth can be made from one box of pseudoephedrine?

Independent lab and law enforcement testing demonstrated that Zephrex-D significantly disrupts meth production and is highly meth resistant.

Using the highly popular and dangerous One Pot (direct conversion) method, law enforcement did not produce meth. Recently data indicates 98% of reported meth labs use one pot method, and cause the vast majority of meth-related challenges for communities.

Does the meth-blocking formulation impact congestion relief?

No. The active ingredient, pseudoephedrine, is widely recognized as the most effective nasal decongestant delivered orally. Zephrex-D meets all of the FDA’s OTC monograph requirements for products containing pseudoephedrine HCl. Clinical testing in humans further demonstrates the bioavailability of Zephrex-D. Zephrex-D delivers fast, safe and effective congestion relief from the symptoms of cold, flu and sinus pressure, going to work in as little as 30 minutes.

What is Tarex®?

Tarex is the most effective meth-blocking technology available. It encrypts pseudoephedrine, protecting its chemical code and making it virtually impossible to ‘hack’ by illegal meth producers. In laboratory testing using today’s two step method, Tarex® protected over 98% of the medicine in Zephrex-D® from being converted to meth.* And narcotics enforcement testing shows that no meth can be made using the most popular and dangerous one pot method.

Are legitimate pseudoephedrine consumers impacted by methamphetamine abuse?

All Americans are impacted by the meth epidemic. Meth abuse is estimated to cost US taxpayers as much as $48.3 billion each year. These costs include, but are not limited to: law enforcement, uninsured burn victims, incarceration and rehabilitation of addicts, foster care for dependents, toxic waste cleanup and secondary meth crimes. More importantly, these costs are increasing, not diminishing.

Why does the Zephrex-d pill have a different shape and texture?

Given its innovative and patented formulation, Zephrex-D pills are manufactured using highly specialized equipment. They are intended to have a distinct shape and “waxy” texture and should be stored at room temperature.

The easiest way to open the package is to pull the two tabs forcefully.

Do other pseudoephedrine products also block meth-making?

There are other pseudoephedrine products available which are marketed as tamper-resistant. However, only one product, Zephrex-D, is highly meth-resistant and completely blocks one pot meth production. In fact, Zephrex-D is the only pseudoephedrine product endorsed by the National Narcotics Officer’s Association for its meth-blocking performance.
