Pseudoaphedrine is what can be distilled into meth.

That seems kind of strange that the doc would say that one son had swine and the other didnt. Around here they are saying if you have the flu it's h1n1. Seems unlikely that they would have two different strains of flu in the same house at the same time. Plus, Its way too early for the seasonal flu anyhow. :?

Not to second-guess your doc, but H1N1 "sometimes" has the gastric component, not always. I'm with mr1precision, odds are they both had H1N1. When my three kids were little, one would bring home a virus and it would run through the whole family, but we would not necessarily all have the same symptoms.

Plus looking back at each time I have ever had a the flu, throwing up was just a common thing, do did I have the H1N1 flu for all those years?

That's a weak excuse for why we have to "show your papers" to purchase it.

I agree. I hate being treated as a criminal just because there are some criminals out there. But we digress. This is supposed to be about swine flu, not drug policy. Mea culpa. I guess we need a separate topic. I think I'll start one.

Bad news.
Some people that we know through the inlaws lost a twin toddler to h1n1. :( Also a friends 8 yr old is boy has it. He has asthma so it's even worse for the little guy. The good thing is that he's in the hospital. Scary. :shock:
