Can I take the pseudoephedrine that is behind the pharmacy counter, or is that too strong of a dose?

In brief: Yes
Most pharmacies in most states now keep products containing Pseudoephedrine behind the counter but it is still an over the counter medication that does not require a prescription.
It is hidden so it can not be purchased in large quantities by drug dealers who chemically alter it it to manufacture and sell illegal methamphetamine.

In brief: Yes, but
Before you decide to buy peduoephedrine, please discuss any other medications you may be taking with the pharmacist, especially if you are taking medications for high blood pressure.
