Little known fact about fight-or-flight

Did you know that Sudafed (psueudoephedrine hydrochloride), which is an analogue of ephedrine, has physiological effects related to ephinephrine?

After trying to cope with a difficult situation on Tuesday evening I found it nearly impossible to sleep due to the adrenaline reaction.

On the other hand, my sinuses were much clearer!

Just another random example of the miracle of human physiology...
