HB 2648 allows pseudoephedrine products to be sold
A proposal from Representative Bill Post (R-Keizer) to allow the sale
of pseudoephedrine products without a prescription passed out of the Senate today and
will be sent to the Governor’s desk.
This is the third attempt from Rep. Post to remove an unnecessary barrier for
Oregonians that will lower their health care costs when purchasing pseudoephedrine
products. Sudafed and other similar drugs will still be restricted to people who are at
least 18 years of age with a valid ID under the proposal.
Currently, purchasing a pseudoephedrine product requires a visit to your doctor to
receive a prescription, which comes with an expensive bill.
“Third time is the charm to pass this common-sense bill which will help Oregonians
looking for a quick and affordable remedy for allergies and head colds,” said Rep. Post.
“People shouldn’t be asked to visit a doctor to obtain a prescription for common cold
medicine, especially when Oregon is the ONLY state requiring a prescription. We can
trust Oregonians more than that.”
passed out of the Senate with bipartisan support.
