I am attempting to buy 12 boxes for my aunt who lives in Oregan and is coming to visit 3 months from now she can not purchase this item there please tell me how I can purchase this much before she comes to visit it will last her all year so it only comes out to a box a month but would like to purchase all 12 at one time then not be allowed to buy any more for the whole year is that possible thank you in advance
The limits are for OTC purchases. If you need more a physician, PA or NP can write a prescription for her and she can get a greater amount. Some of the pharmacists balk a bit, but it is legal and can be very helpful. I have a family of 4 that needs it regularly in the spring. Without the Rx I could never get enough to keep us all healthy and active, This was another great government ploy to keep meth production at bay, only the real patients are suffering and meth use has actually gone up !!! Another government intervention gone awry - surprise.

In North Carolina, they have a daily and 30-day period limit. Basically, I can purchase the 12 hour (2.4g/box) 3 times every 30 days to stay under the 9g 30 day limit. I can only buy 1 pack at a time to stay under the 3.6g daily limit. I copied the statement from NC statutes below. The law may vary in your state.
"NORTH CAROLINA LAW STRICTLY PROHIBITS THE PURCHASE OF MORE THAN TWO PACKAGES OF CERTAIN PRODUCTS CONTAINING PSEUDOEPHEDRINE (3.6 GRAMS TOTAL) PER DAY, AND MORE THAN THREE PACKAGES (9 GRAMS TOTAL) OF CERTAIN PRODUCTS CONTAINING PSEUDOEPHEDRINE WITHIN A 30‑DAY PERIOD. BY MY SIGNATURE, I ATTEST THAT THE INFORMATION I HAVE PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THIS TRANSACTION IS TRUE AND CORRECT AND THAT THIS TRANSACTION DOES NOT EXCEED THE PURCHASE RESTRICTIONS. I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT KNOWING AND WILLFUL VIOLATION OF THE PURCHASE RESTRICTIONS OR THE FURNISHING OF FALSE INFORMATION IN CONNECTION THEREWITH MAY SUBJECT ME TO CRIMINAL PENALTIES."

are these sold off the shelf
or are they sold behind the pharmacy counter. and how many can I buy, if so?
In North Carolina I have to purchase it at the pharmacy counter. The NC limit is 3.6g/day and 9g in a 30-day period. That means I can get one 12 hour pack (2.4g) on a given day and up to 3 packs in a 30-day period.
