Ethel Stanton Says:


Years ago in the 50's and 60's, Novahistine was available over the counter. My pediatrician had recommended it for my children and I found it very helpful.
Then, sometime in the 70's it was withdrawn. Doctors do not prescribe it and it seems to have disappeared from the market.
Does anyone know why this happened? Is this medicine still available??

Hi Ethel,

This may require some detective work because there seem to be certain products available with the same name, but different active ingredients.

On the flip side, there appear to be other products out there with the same combination of active ingredients, sold as a different name, both over the counter and prescription strength.

Anyways, i ran a search on drugstore.com of those active ingredients (Chlorpheniramine Phenylephrine) and found a number of results for OTC brands which contained them.

One product which stood out was Allerest PE Allergy & Sinus Relief, which seems to contain that same combination of ingredients.

Anyways, I hope this helps. Please feel free to post back if you have any other questions or information to add...

in the 50s and 60s, Novahistamine was marketed by Pitman More Pharmacutials, witch was acquired by Dow Chenicals (Dow Pharmaceuticals) which dropped out of the Pharmacutical business in the 70s - thus the unfortunate loss of Navahistimne, an excellent product!
