All drugs containing Phenylpropanolamine are being
recalled. Please read this CAREFULLY, as you may USE one or more 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
18-79
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.

A friend found out and called the 800# on the container for
Triaminic...and was informed 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. If you know of anyone else
with small children, PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF.

DO PASS ALONG TO ALL ON YOUR MAILING LIST so people are
informed. They can then pass it along to their families. To confirm
these
findings
please take time to check the following URL:

A few months ago they removed all that stuff from our cabnet at work and replaced it with other drugs.
