Just wanted to add that pseudoephedrine and ephedrine can cause psychosis! I was abusing ephedrine in its pure form along with caffeine, I was fine for months. Until one day in 2018 days before my fucking birthday. I had a panic attack. I wasn't sleeping because of the caffeine and I ended up staying up for 3 days. I went to the hospital on third day, in a total fucking daze. I was delusional; I was hearing things and hallucinating. Please for the love of god (or who ever u do, or don't believe in) don't abuse either of these drugs. I ended up in a psych ward for 2 weeks along with two 3 day supervised hospital visits.  I'll attach a few links below about other cases. I didn't even know I was causing this much damage to my body.

Sounds very similar to what happened to me on ephedrine. I was taking the crazy weight loss pills they had back in those days just for the energy to get through work. I mean, you're taking the beginnings of meth. It's not worth it.

But with pseudoephedrine specifically and how it reacts w B2 you're getting a very different problem typically. Called Bronchodilatation. This isn't typically seen as a problem. For people WITH ATSHMA.

(What if you do have asthma though?)
