want to ensure that any policy decision to prevent the illegal sale of these medicines takes into account the voices of patients."  

About the Survey

AAFA's National Pseudoephedrine (PSE) Awareness Study was conducted online in July 2010 among more than 2,000 U.S. adults age 18+ who personally suffered from asthma, allergies, cold, cough or flu in the preceding 12 months and purchased non-prescription medications for at least one condition during that time. Survey participants were asked more than 40 questions each. Nearly two-thirds (62%) of respondents are employed, more than half (57%) are female, nearly half (42%) are married and one-quarter (24%) have a child in the household. The study was conducted online and used Harris Interactive's proprietary propensity weighting to ensure the online sample reflects general population trends.
