1What Price Does Your Community Pay for Meth Abuse Every Year?
potential grams of meth yielded
potential cost to your community from your PSE sales alone
cost if all pharmacies in your state sell an equal amount
One study of 2005 data showed that annual costs incurred by all communities in the United States impacted by methamphetamine production and abuse totaled $23.4 billion.4
The problem of methamphetamine production and abuse is more common than many believe. As a pharmacist, you’re in a unique position to help fight meth abuse in your community. And you can do so by stocking and recommending Nexafed.
Not only is Nexafed as effective as other pseudoephedrine HCl products at relieving cold and allergy congestion, it’s the only pseudoephedrine product with Impede® technology—inactive ingredients that disrupt the extraction and conversion of pseudoephedrine to methamphetamine.1
These calculations are based on assumptions supported by various publicly available reports. They are intended for illustrative purposes only and may not fully represent the scope of the methamphetamine epidemic or the actual costs associated with methamphetamine in your community or state.4,6,7 This calculation assumes 10% of PSE boxes sold in your pharmacy are converted into methamphetamine.
