When it comes to cold medicine in Japan, everyone will think of the golden package, the bright yellow powder of Baibao Neng GOLD A (パブロンゴールドA) . Bai Bao Neng GOLD A is mainly used to relieve various symptoms of colds, such as runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, sore throat, cough, phlegm, chills, fever, headache, joint pain, muscle pain, etc.

The editor also likes to use it very much. When I travel abroad, I will definitely keep a few packs in the medicine cabinet at home. Whenever I feel like I have a cold in the early stage, my throat is itchy, and my nose is uncomfortable, I will take a pack of Baibao Neng. , Get a good night's sleep, and most of the next morning you'll be refreshed, and the cold feeling just disappears. I haven't had a fever for three or four years now, and every time I catch a cold, it stops at the initial symptoms.
However, people who often pay attention to Japanese cosmeceuticals or Japanese news have probably read a report. A woman asked a friend to help send Baibao Neng from Japan to Taiwan, but it was regarded as transporting drugs. Well, in the end, the court did not prosecute, but the drugs were also destroyed. Why is the drug that is generally available in pharmacies in Japan suspected of being drugs in Taiwan? What is the problem?
The main reason is that the ingredients in this drug include DL-METHYLEPHEDRINE (methyl ephedra hydrochloride) and Dihydrocodeine ( dihydrocodeine ) , which are legal drugs in Japan, but are listed as drug pioneer raw materials in Taiwan. Among the fourth-level drugs, let's take a look at what these two ingredients are?
DL-METHYLEPHEDRINE (methyl ephedra hydrochloride)
It is mainly used to treat bronchial asthma, urticaria, rhinitis and other allergic diseases , cough, bronchitis cough and other problems. It is a prescription drug in Taiwan. In addition, because it can be used as a precursor ingredient for drug production, it is listed as a drug precursor material in the Drug Hazard Control Regulations. (Baibao Neng sold in Taiwan also contains this ingredient)
Dihydrocodeine ( dihydrocodeine )
It is an opioid cough suppressant with the possibility of addiction, and is classified as Item 66 of Class 4 drugs
From the above information, we can see that these two drugs have properties similar to drugs. Of course, ordinary people cannot easily extract these ingredients into drugs, and judges will not treat people as drug traffickers just because they buy overseas drugs. The women ultimately do not prosecute.
However, while waiting, you will definitely be very scared, worrying that you will ruin your life because of buying a medicine. Therefore , it is recommended that you do not buy more than two boxes (bottles) of Baibao Neng GOLD A, and fill in the application for import consent online. (More than two bottles must be filled) so that you won't get into trouble if you buy a medicine.
Other cold medicine options?
After writing so much, the editor feels very puzzled. Japan's iconic cold medicine has such ingredients, so what about other cold medicine ingredients? The editor tried hard to read the ingredients of major cold medicines in Japan, and found that these two ingredients are actually common in cold medicines. After searching for a long time, I finally found that ルルアタックFX (Lulu Attack FX) does not contain these two ingredients, butルルアタックFX has been discontinued and replaced by ルルアタックFXa (Lulu Attack FXa). Looking at the ingredient list, there is still DL-METHYLEPHEDRINE (methyl ephedra hydrochloride), but other cough-relieving ingredients are used instead of Dihydrocodeine ( dihydrocodeine ).
Although LuluアタックFXa (Lulu Attack FXa) still has DL-METHYLEPHEDRINE (methyl ephedra hydrochloride), but this ingredient is also used in the Taiwan version of Baibao Neng, and Dihydrocodeine ( dihydrocodeine ) has no hidden effect If you are concerned about sex, you can buy Lulu アタック FXa (Lulu Attack FXa) as an alternative to Baibao Neng.
