This should really be a blog, but it's extremely important. I'm afraid not enough people will read it as a blog.

This is on the level. There's a link to the FDA that confirms this message.

Where are the old fashioned remedies when you need them?!!!!


All drugs containing PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE(PPA) 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. Also, please pass this on to everyone you know. The website below verifies this information.

STOP TAKING anything containing this ingredient. It has been linked to increased 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

The following medications contain Phenylpropanolamine:

1.. Acutrim Diet Gum Appetite Suppressant
2.. Acutrim Plus Dietary Supplements
3.. Acutrim Maximum Strength Appetite Control
4.. Alka-Seltzer Plus Children's Cold Medicine Effervescent
5.. Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold medicine (cherry or orange)
6.. Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold Medicine Original

7.. Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold & Cough Medicine Effervescent
8.. Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold & Flu Medicine
9.. Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold & Sinus Effervescent
10.. Alka-Seltzer Plus Night-Time Cold Medicine
11.. BC Allergy Sinus Cold Powder
12. BC Sinus Cold Powder

24.. Dimetapp Elixi! r
25.. Dimetapp 4 Hour Liquid Gels
26.. Dimetapp 4 Hour Tablets
27. Dimetapp 12 Hour Extentabs Tablets
28.. Naldecon DX Pediatric Drops
29.. Permathene Mega-16
30.. Robitussin CF
31.. Tavist-D 12 Hour Relief of Sinus & Nasal Congestion
32.. Triaminic DM Cough Relief
33.. Triaminic Expectorant Chest & Head
34.. Triaminic Syrup Cold & Allergy
35.. 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:

1. Orange 3D Cold & Allergy Cherry (Pink)
2.3D Cold &Cough Berry

3.3D 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.

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:
