Which states require a prescription for pseudoephedrine?

Currently, only Oregon and Mississippi have state-wide laws in place which require a prescription for all products containing pseudoephedrine. However, there are local laws in place in a number of cities in Missouri and Tennessee.

Correspondingly, is Sudafed illegal?

Sudafed contains a key ingredient used by amateur chemists to produce the illegal drug methamphetamine or crystal meth. Pseudoephedrine-based therapies--including Johnson & Johnson's Sudafed line, Pfizer's Advil Cold & Sinus, and others--have been banned from store shelves since 2006.

Is pseudoephedrine prescription only?

Pseudoephedrine is a drug found in both prescription and over-the-counter products used to relieve nasal or sinus congestion caused by the common cold, sinusitis, hay fever, and other respiratory allergies. It can also be used illegally to produce methamphetamine.
