Eltor Pseudoephedrine - discontinued?

I used to be able to get Eltor Pseudoephedrine at Walmart or RC Superstore but for 4-5 months now no one has it. Used to be told "it's on back order", but now I'm being told by multiple places "we can't get it anymore".

I'm assuming it's been discontinued, but no one can confirm.

Has anyone been able to purchase any recently? As far as I know it's the only over the counter Pseudoephedrine w/o added meds you can get in Canada.

According to that, it's still being marketed. I'm 99% certain it still exists.

Well thanks for finding that.

Who knows why they suddenly can't get it then. Maybe a shortage because of Covid. Oh well.

The product listing for Eltor on my supplier's website (Mckesson) says discontinued (This product is discontinued by the manufacturer.
). However, you may want to email Sanofi Aventis to confirm.

You could ask your Pharmacist for an alternative, such as the immediate release pseudoephedrine, which is still available.

Was just trying to track down some Eltor for my wife and ran into the same problem. That's how I found this thread.

Finally found some yesterday at the Shoppers Drug Mart at Park Lawn and Lakeshore!
