CHARLESTON - Some cold medicines that contain Pseudoephedrine are no longer sold at Rite Aid stores in the Mountain State.
Rite Aid's West Virginia stores recently stopped selling medicines that have Pseudoephedrine as their only active ingredient. Pseudoephedrine is also used to illegally make methamphetamine. Rite Aid said it's stores will continue to sell medicines that combined Pseudoephedrine and other ingredients.
Rite Aid Spokeswoman Ashley Flower said that it's apparently more difficult to make the drug from a combination product. She also said the company was committed to help addressing the meth problem while serving it's customers with legitimate medical needs.
The company had more than a hundred stores in West Virginia.
