Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. I'm not sure what your question is. The FDA never removed actifed. Pfizer changed the formula in 2006 to contain different ingredients. If youre looking for a sinus otc med, find one with phenyephrine as the active ingredient

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
