    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. Problems were not found in men, but the FDA
    recommended that everyone (even children) s! eek alte rnative
    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:

    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:

    PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO YOUR CHILDREN IN CASE THEY GIVE IT TO THEIR CHILDREN OR TO FRIENDS WHO HAVE CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN.
