Re : Drug Recall(Original message sent by Dato’ Dr Jemilah Mahmood, Gleneagles Hospital)
Dear all, Please take the time to send this message to your loved ones, family and friends. Print it out and put it up in your office for public reading!
URGENT!!! PLEASE READ CAREFULLY FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR CHILDREN AND OTHERS!
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:
  1. Acutrim Diet Gum Appetite Suppressant Plus Dietary Supplements
  2. Acutrim Maximum Strength Appetite Control
  3. Alka-Seltzer Plus Children's Cold Medicine Effervescent
  4. Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold medicine (cherry or orange)
  5. Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold ! Medicine Original
  6. Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold & Cough Medicine Effervescent

  30. Triaminic DM Cough Relief
  31. Triaminic Expectorant Chest & Head Congestion
  32. Triaminic Syrup Cold & Allergy
  33. 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
  4. 3D Expectorant
They are asking you to call them at 1800-548-3708 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:
