Is my wife going to get arrested as a meth maker? Anything I can do to stop it?

I live in Illinois.
I am a user of Claritin D as is my wife. Often we have to take turns picking up the medicine so as to avoid the hassles with the law about pseudoephedrine.
My wife went to get some today and was refused, being told she had purchased 7.6 grams of the drug between Jan 16 and Feb 16 and the limit within 30 days is 3.5 grams
As we have allergies, we aren't drug dealers, we have no idea how many grams of pseudoephedrine are in Claritin D. The last time she purchased any was Superbowl Sunday though we don't know if maybe my purchases count as well as we live in the same house?
Going online we read an account of a woman who had the police arrest her in the night for a "mom and pop meth lab" she didn't have for this very thing and now we are very worried. The police are welcome to search our house, they'll find nothing. We have all our teeth, we aren't on meth, we don't make meth...we just are two people with bad allergies.
Obviously I'm panicking at this point...is there anything we can do but wait and see if the police come pounding to arrest us? Is that likely to happen?
