Phenylpropanolamine!


Cant say it? Dont use it!

These products have been removed from shelves because they contain Phenylpropanolamine. This was seen on the news the last few nights. Stop taking anything with this ingredient. It has been linked to increase hemorrhage stroke (bleeding in the brain) among women ages 18-49 in the three days after starting use of the medication. Problems were not found in men, but the FDA recommended that everyone (even children) seek alternative medication.

The following medications contained Phenylpropanolamine at the time of the announecment:

  • Alka-Seltzer Plus Children's Cold Medicine Effervescent
  • Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold medicine (cherry or orange)
  • Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold Medicine Original
  • Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold & Cough Medicine Effervescent
  • Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold & Flu Medicine Effervescent
  • Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold & Sinus Effervescent
  • Alka Seltzer Plus Night-Time cold Medicine Effervescent
  • BC Allergy Sinus Cold Powder
  • BC Sinus Cold Powder
  • Comtrex Deep Chest Cold & Congestion Relief
  • Comtrex Flu Therapy & Fever Relief Day & Night
  • Contac 12-Hour Cold Capsules
  • Contac 12 Hour Caplets
  • Coricidin D Cold, Flu & Sinus
  • Dimetapp Cold & Allergy Chewable Tablets
  • Dimetapp Cold & Cough Liqui-Gels
  • Dimetapp DM cold & Cough Elixir
  • Dimetapp Elixir
  • Dimetapp 4 Hour Liqui Gels

  • Triaminic Syrup Cold & Allergy
  • Triaminic Triaminicol Cold & Cough

  • Dexatrim Gelcaps
  • Dexatrim Vitamin C/Caffeine Free

This just goes to show the dangers of using symptom addressing substances. It also shows the benefit of PREVENTATIVE, natural methods. By this example we can clearly see that proper testing is not always done by the pharmaceutical industry on over the counter medication. It is sad that people must suffer in order for the FDA to wake up and take action.
