Illicit meth makers use various methods to convert the pseudoephedrine ingredient found in cough-cold products into methamphetamine. The most common meth-making method today, and clearly the most volatile and dangerous, is the One Pot process, commonly known as “Shake and Bake.” Using this method, law enforcement officials have rigorously tested Zephrex-D, and none of them could successfully make meth with our product. Further testing by independent laboratories concluded that known illicit extraction/conversion methods are also ineffective. That’s because it’s made using Tarex™, an innovative, patented technology which blocks the meth-making process, while still providing full congestion relief for patients. Thanks to this tamper-resistant formulation, patients get the relief they need without the concern for pseudoephedrine misuse. The technology used in Zephrex-D has the potential to make our communities safer by protecting against the crimes and perils associated with meth making.
Powerful congestion relief. Powerful crime protection.
Abuse of methamphetamine has reached epidemic proportions throughout America with a devastating impact on users, family members, children, innocent victims and the environment:
- increased crime rates, including theft, larceny and robbery in homes and pharmacies
- explosions and fires during meth-making process resulting in exposure to toxic fumes, chemical burn victims, and hospitalizations
- toxic waste left behind at meth labs sites requiring expensive hazardous cleanup using taxpayer funding
