Drixoral Cold & Allergy Overview

Dexbrompheniramine/pseudoephedrine (trade name Drixoral) is a combination medication that contains the antihistamine dexbrompheniramine maleate and the decongestant pseudoephedrine sulfate. It was used to treat symptoms associated with allergies and colds such as itchy and watery eyes, runny nose, nasal and sinus congestion, and sneezing. Because it contains pseudoephedrine, its purchase in the United States was severely restricted by the Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2005 over fears...

Has Drixoral been recalled?

Hi. After carefully going through websites i found a very interesting story about Drixoral. It states a batch of drixoral was recalled. Can some comment on it and if yes it was recalled, is drixoral still good to consume from Canada as stated by sites in Canada? A reply will be greatly appreciated. ## From what I've heard and read on various sites, it was not recalled, but the company stopped making it. Because of the recent FDA crackdown on medications with certain ingredients, such as Peudoephedrine being sold on the regular store shelves, it had to be placed behind the pharmacy counter in the U.S. It did not require a prescription, however, with so many products available on the public shelves, most people just purchased something else. So, the manufacturer stopped making it due ...

Drixoral and Effidac Discontinued

I started taking Effidac a long time ago which worked great for 24 hours. Then it was pulled off the shelves. I switched to Drixoral, which only lasts for 12 hours but did the trick. I guess it's the next one to go off the shelves. I'm not sure what else to do except suffer along with the rest. Any suggestions on other OTC medications that might help? ## I remember effidac as well. it worked wonderful within two days I was rid of any cold I had suddenly it was off the shelf I was very disappointed they don't want things to work for you, they want to make money off of you

Substitute for Drixoral

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

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...

no availibility of drixoral

I purchase my Drixoral at Costco and have ebeen told they are no longer able to get it, because it is be reformulated, is this correct ## I usually get mine at Walmart. They cannot get it, either. No explanation. I hope they did not find something dangerous with it. ## Maybe you can try to find a small Mom n' Pop pharmacy that still compounds formulas. The active ingredients in this med are Dexbrompheniramine and Pseudoephedrine. If you go to one of those pharmacies and tell them the ingredients they might be able to formulate it for you. ## The manufacturer did the same thing about 2 years ago and there was talk they were going to reformulate it then but they did not. There isn't another drug with the same ingredients. Not sure why, but every time I can't get it, I get very...

Drixoral discontinued?

I have been disappointed to find that Drixoral has become almost impossible to get, as the company has stopped shipping it to pharmacies. My Doctor suggested I take this once easily obtainable allergy remedy years ago,and it is the ONLY thing that has proven effective in eliminating my symptoms. I called Shering Plough, Drixoral's manufacturer and was told that there will be a temporary cease in the manufacture of this drug for one year, while it's place of manufacture is being changed. ## Adrienne, So are you saying that Drixoral is not actually discontinued, just a temporary hold on manufacturing? If that's the case then I know that there will be a lot of happy people... ## I am extremely pleased that Drixoral is not being discontinued, I also have never found any other me...

can't find drixoral

I have taken Drixoral for over 20 something years on a seasonal bases. It helped me get through the first part of my allergies until i get a shot of cortizon and i would take Drixoral along with the shot and have no problems. I purchased my last box in April 08 and now to find out no one can get them anymore. Please bring them back and let us make the decision as to what the side affects are and if it is worth dealing with. It is worth it to me, I am in hell right now. ## For years I have had seasonal relief with Drixoral and now its not available any more. Whose brilliant idea is that? I see I am not alone in having to put up with the symptoms that Claritin or Zyrtec can't resolve. ## The company discontinued the product, there have been several posts about this. I am not sure why ...
