I am looking for tripelennamine. As a pharmacist I clearly remember 60mg then sr 100mg tabs being available. Zyrtec, Claritin, Allegra together could not work as well pbz. I worked at smoke filled bowling alley back then and pbz with Sudafed were required. ## According to "Martindale the Complete Drug Reference" & "Physician's Desk Reference", Pyribenzamine (tripelennamine hcl) is no longer produced in brand or generic versions in the USA. It is said to still be available in bulk powder, something like a minimum order of 25 gram bottles, strictly sold only to a USA pharmacy, or a USA "compounding pharmacy". It is also noted to be manufactured in about 4 or 5 other countries, but those countries are based in or around Europe. Others have suggested looking ...

ok to take 2 year expired cheratussin ac
6 Replies RSS
Found my old bottle but expired July 2012.. is it OK to take it? ## Liquids have a much shorter shelf life, because they tend to degrade faster than other forms of medications and they can also turn rancid, which could make you ill. Thus, it would be best to just dispose of it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## it is fine sorry i didn't see this before. I have saved mined up to 4 yrs. & it worked.... I work for a chemist & he told me aspirin integrity stays intact 30 yrs. However this is NOT the formula for all drugs, but from personal exp. my cough med, stayed intact fine. Ever notice on all drugs now-a-days says expires in one year. what a miracle that everything goes bad in 12 months at the same time. ## We have the same thing, 2 year old Ceratussin AC and hubby ...

round dark pink pill with b on one side
1 Reply RSS
I found a round dark pink pill with b on one side and blank on the other. Seems to be coated. ## I have seen a number of round pink pills with a lowercase "b" on one side, but the other side to these pills also bear 3 digit numerals. On the other hand if it's a capital "B" on one side and blank on the back, then this is reportedly identified as a Children's Benadryl (fast melt); containing 19mgs of diphenhydramine citrate. This medication is an antihistamine used for treating symptoms of an allergic reaction. For further verification, the pill itself is a product of Pfizer. I hope this helps!

How long will it take to cure the loss of voice due to allergies? ## This is an antibiotic, it is used to treat or prevent bacterial infections, it will not do anything to help with allergy symptoms. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. Did your doctor tell you to take this?

What is the content of phenypropanolamine in dynatussin capsule? Can it can cause a rise in blood pressure with a blood pressure of 125/80? ## Yes, it can cause higher blood pressure as a side effect, but 125/80 is not really a high blood pressure, since normal is 120/80.

substitute for drixoral
135 Replies RSS
Are any of the meds with same formula as Drixoral available anywhere? (Desihist SA, Dexaphen SA, Dexophed, Disobrom, Disophrol, Dixaphedrine, Drexophed SR, Drixomed, Drixoral, Duomine) Is the effect of Brompheniramine Maleate the same as Dexbrompheniramine Maleate? If so perhaps, Lodrane D-24 will work. Has anyone tried it yet? I'm fighting nausea, popping ears & wheezing while waiting for my pharmacy to get some. I'm so relieved to find I am not alone in only finding relief with Drixoral. Over the years, especially recently, I have tried others, but none do the job. Anyone having success with a substitute? ## I have not found a subsitute for Drixoral that works either. I was glad to know that I too was not the only person suffering from allergies that only Drixoral seemed t...

Drixoral Substitute
45 Replies RSS
Great news! I have FINALLY found the substitute for Drixoral Cold & Allergy and wish someone had told me before I had to suffer with allergy symptoms for so long. It's a combination of one Mucinex DM tablet and one Aleve-D Sinus & Cold tablet; take one of each at the same time and within an hour you'll feel like a brand new person! Mucinex DM is an OTC expectorant and cough supressant and Aleve-D (an extended release medicine) can be found behind the counter (you have to ask for it and show ID), but I found both at Walmart. I know the name brands cost more, but do not bother buying substitutions because they simply will not work; since Drixoral has not been available, I already have tried soooooo many that didn't help at all. Good Luck and I hope this works as well f...

Flumil Forte 600 Mg, what is it for?
24 Replies RSS
Hi there, Im on vacations now in Spain. Unfortunately I got ill, the regular cold I think (runny nose, caugh, and headache) Today at the pharmacy I was given Flumil Forte 600 Mg. Im wondering if its gonna help cause my spanish is not that good to understand the leaflet. Thank you in advance ## From what I can find, this contains the active ingredient Acetylcysteine, which is a mucolytic, so it's used to help break up the mucous and congestion associated with cold symptoms. Learn more: Are there any other questions or comments? ## How often can you take flumil forte 600mg ## Only once a day, so once in the morning or once at night. It's a decongestant but it doesn't contain paracetomol so you should take that too to relieve any horrible cold symptoms! ## I am just back from t...

what over the counter medication can cause false positives
5 Replies RSS
I am clean but probation says i tested positive for Methamphetamine. what med or combination could have caused it? ## I have heard that sudafed (pseudo ephedrine) can cause false positives for meth. Google it and see what you come up with but I have heard this more times than I can count. I don't have any experience since I never take cold/sinus medication. Too many I am allergic to so I stay away from all of them. Good luck and let me know what you find out. It's crazy, but it seems the more "scientifically correct" these drug screens get the more false positives come back for various drugs. Its not fair to a lot of people and you would THINK your doctor would know about other drugs that can generate false positives.....but, they don't seem to know or they just don...

Flonase and Cataracts
26 Replies RSS
Has anyone that has used Flonase got cataracts? I have them because of it and nasonex. Are there any class action suits against the makers of this? I would not have used it if I had known. ## Have the doctors definitively tied your cataracts to the medications? We have had other posts on here about vision issues developing from people using these types of medications. The problem, however, is proving they are what caused it. And no, I'm sorry, but I know of no class action suits in regards to this. ## My eye surgeon said they were definately caused by steroids and the only one I have used is flonase. She said she could tell by the location of my cataracts, they are posterior and can only be caused by steroid use. If enough people have this kind, I would think it could be proven. ## ...
