The warnings are for people with graves/hyper thyroid, not for hashis people.

I take the Coricidin HBP meds and avoid anything with pseudoephedrine in it.

I am recovering from a head cold that started just prior to Christmas. I would not have made it without my NyQuil. Never noticed any negative reactions at all. I have had hypothyroidism for about 10 years.
