Hi Claire,


Thank you for your question! Deconamine contains two active ingredients: pseudoephedrine and chlorpheniramine maleate. There are several over-the-counter medications available that contain this combination, but unfortunately they do not come in the same strength as the prescription form. The Deconamine should be available in a generic form at your pharmacy, or you could speak with your doctor about trying another medication that is available over-the-counter. Always be sure to confer with your doctor before starting, stopping, or changing any of your medications!


Best of luck,
