BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Sam’s Club will host free health screenings for men’s health next month, the club retailer said.

Fruth decides to only carry diversion-resistant PSE product Nexafed behind the counter

BY Michael Johnsen

POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — Fruth Pharmacy on Friday announced their commitment to replace medications containing pseudoephedrine, a nonprescription decongestant that can be used in the illicit manufacture of methamphetamine, with Nexafed, a PSE product formulated with Impede technology that disrupts the extraction and conversion of PSE to meth.

Currently, medications with 30 mg of PSE will be replaced with other mg amounts being replaced as soon as possible, the 27-store chain stated.

“Fruth Pharmacy has long been an advocate in the fight against methamphetamine production,” stated Lynne Fruth, president and chairman for Fruth Pharmacy. “We were excited about the NPLEx system — a cross-state electronic log system — and Nexafed is another tool we are glad to have.”

“The statistics for meth labs in West Virginia alone is staggering,” added Tim Weber, director of pharmacy administration and procurement at Fruth. “If there’s a way to stop people from using medications sold in our pharmacies to produce meth, then we are interested.”

Nexafed is distributed by Acura Pharmaceuticals.
