Yes, much stricter control on the sale of products containing this (and related) ingredient/s have indeed been implemented.
According to the MCC:

"The Minister of Health has in terms of Section 22A(2) and Section 37A of the Medicines and Related Substances Act, 1965 (Act 101 of 1965) on recommendation of the Medicines Control Council amended the schedules of the substances pseudoephedrine, d-nor-pseudoephedrine and ephedrine and has limited the maximum pack size of these products due to:

· The rapid increase in the illicit manufacture of methamphetamine where individuals are diverting ephedrine, d-nor-pseudoephedrine and pseudoephedrine, the key precursors for methamphetamine, obtained from licit distribution channels, to methamphetamine.

· The International Narcotics Control Board recommendation that the controls of ephedrine and pseudoephedrine substances should be expanded to pharmaceutical preparations containing these substances.
