Lee's save the baby. Where can I find it?

The is in a clear bottle with a red screw on cap. The liquid is yellow in color It has oil in it that separates and goes to the top when bottle sits. To use run the bottle under warm water and shake to mix. Applythe warm liquid tothe child's chest and under nose to relieve symptoms of croupe. Instead of placing a drop under the nose you can also place it on a pillowcase or sheet. ## It was made by the Lee's company and yes, it is patent protected. The reason it is no longer available is that it contained Camphor, yes, even in the liquid that was taken internally and the FDA has recognized this as being unsafe. Camphor is now only approved to be used topically. As to the other ingredients, I am sorry, I have been unable to discover that. Does anyone else know anything about this?...

Good day. I would like to ask if it's safe to use cipla actin while I have stomach ulcers?

Cetirizine Alnix Drops

I have a one-year old daughter and she has allergies. She also has rashes on her face, hands, and legs, and is frequently attacked by asthma. Her pediatrician prescribed alnix drops 2.5ml for two weeks and then 1ml once a day until she reaches 2 yrs old. I am having doubts the fact that alnix drops have its side effects on babies. Is it really safe to take alnix drops for more than two weeks? I hope you could answer my doubts. Thanks! ## Cetirizine is an antihistamine, that is commonly used to treat allergies. In the U.S. it is most commonly found under the trade name Zyrtec and is quite often used for children and, when necessary, is used on a long-term basis.

pinex cough syrup

I use to take this cough syrup when I was a kid. It was the only cough syrup that would help me. I was just wondering if it still can be bought? You had to mix it at home but I forget how. If anyone knows if it is still for sale or not please let me know ## I found a 1925 newspaper with instructions for making your own cough syrup. 2 1/2 oz. Pinex. 2 cups sugar, 1 cup water. Stir until dissolved. No cooking needed. ## I am looking for the same Pinex liquid cough syrup. We use to mix it in a jar with Honey! It was so thick. It was great to get rid of mucus. It stops the colds from going into the lungs. ## I cannot find PINEX..However, I did find a product a few days ago called CREOMULSION..made by a company in Marrietta, Ga. it looks like Pinex and tastes like Pinex. Now I'll see if ...

Drixoral Substitute

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...

white oval pill with jmax on one side ## I'm 51 and have the flu. I took j max last night, hoping to get some relief, and had unusually vivid dreams. During one, I woke myself up when I kicked out hard enough to fall out of bed. Then I had another where I dreamed I was in the bathroom and ended up actually wetting the bed. My third dream was that I was again in the bathroom, on the toilet, then catching myself, afraid I was dreaming and would wet the bed. I looked around to check, saw that I was indeed in the bathroom, and proceeded to use the toilet. Unfortunately, I was dreaming, and this resulted in me wetting the bed -again - something i've never done as an adult. What is in JMax that would cause such vivid dreams? I don't think I'll be taking it again anytime soon. ...
