Subject: Recall of Cough & Cold Medicines with PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE

All drugs and medicines containing PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE are being
recalled. (See list below.)

You may want to try calling the 800 number listed on
most drug boxes and inquire about a REFUND.
Please read this CAREFULLY. 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

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
Acutrim Plus Dietary Supplements

Alka-Seltzer Plus Children's Cold Medicine
Effervescent Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold medicine (cherry or orange)

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.

If you know of anyone else with small children,


are informed.They can then pass it along to their families.

To confirm these findings please take time to check
the following:
