    All drugs containing PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE are being recalled.

    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 The FDA recommended that everyone (even children) seek alternative medicine.

    The following medications contain Phenylpropanolamine:

    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

    Orange3D 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:

    Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

    And only 10 years in arriving. This started circulating in 2000 and most of these products no longer contain PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE.

    I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    Frigthening. This is the crap my childrens doctors prescribed for them when then were younger about 10 to 15 years ago. I am glad they survived with no detrimental systoms. So glad that these highly educated and paid physicians are trusted with their decisions for the health and welfare of our children.
