    All drugs containing Phenylpropanolamine are being recalled. You may want
    to try calling the 800 number listed on most drug boxes and inquire about a
    REFUND.

    Please read this CAREFULLY, as I know that some of you may USE some of
    these drugs (Alka Seltzer Plus for one).
    Also, please pass this on to everyone you know. STOP TAKING anything
    containing this ingredient. It has been linked to increased hemorrhagic
    stroke (bleeding in brain) among women ages 18-49 in the three days after
    starting use of medication. Problems were not found in men, but the FDA
    recommended that everyone (even children) seek alternative medicine. The
    following medications contain Phenylpropanolamine:

    Acutrim Diet Gum Appetite Suppressant Plus Dietary Supplements
    Acutrim Maximum Strength Appetite Control
    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
    Dexatrim Caffeine Free
    Dexatrim Extended Duration
    Dexatrim Gelcaps
    Dexatrim Vitamin C/Caffeine Free
    Dimetapp Cold & Allergy Chewable Tablets
    Dimetapp Cold & Cough Liqui-Gels
    Dimetapp DM Cold & Cough Elixir
    Dimetapp Elixir
    Dimetapp 4 Hour Liquid Gels
    Dimetapp 4 Hour Tablets
    Dimetapp 12 Hour Extentabs Tablets
    Naldecon DX Pediatric Drops
    Permathene Mega-16
    Robitussin CF
    Tavist-D 12 Hour Relief of Sinus & Nasal Congestion
    Triaminic DM Cough Relief
    Triaminic Expectorant Chest & Head Congestion
    Triaminic Syrup Cold & Allergy
    Triaminic Triaminicol Cold & Cough

    I just found out and called the 800# on the
    container for Triaminic and they informed me that they are voluntarily
    recalling the following medicines because of a certain ingredient that is
    causing strokes and seizures in children:

    Orange 3D Cold & Allergy Cherry (Pink)
    3D Cold & Cough Berry
    3D Cough Relief
    Yellow 3D Expectorant

    They are asking you to call them at 800-548-3708
    with the lot number on the box so they can send you postage for you to send
    it back to them, and they will also issue you a refund. [img]smilies/scared.gif[/img] [img]smilies/scared.gif[/img]

    i heard about this last year in a study. people are encouraging consumers to use the other brands of medication. unfortunately, the medicinal ingredient in the other brands is pseudoephedrine, which is a stimulant, a banned substance for athletes such as myself.
    i'm getting a cold right now too. because i can't take any drugs, i'm sticking to my usual dose of scotch for all my aches and pains. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    laner, and all you other sick fucks [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] out there--for coughs, try blackberry brandy. It tastes just like a strong cough syrup!! [img]smilies/devil.gif[/img]

    ANGEL4U--question.

    Should people check all the Private Label- equivalent (Osco, Sav-on, Walgreen's, etc) of all these meds listed above? Private labels, when it comes to OTC meds, almost always have the exact same composition as the brand name, while being cheaper. The private labels will also say what brand it is comparable to.

    That's a good question! I would guess that any off brand would be recalled also if it contained Phenylpropanolamine...I would ask the pharmacist about that or call the number listed. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
