Phenol Propanolamine (PPA) Must Read!!!

Phenol propanolamine (PPA) 08/02/2012

It's about a Medication that is familiar to many of us. Note also the FDA 's comments, at the end of the message.

Apparently, this was caused by a medication that is deadly.

I would like to thank those of you who expressed condolences on the recent passing of my mother.
She suffered a hemorrhagic stroke while she was driving home from my house at 7:30 and passed away at 8:30. My mother's stroke and passing was an enormous shock to my family because she did not have any symptoms or risk factors for a stroke.

Just the week before she had gone to her doctor for a check up and received a clean bill of health. She did, however, develop a cold while she was visiting me and had taken Alka Seltzer Cold Plus for 3 days.

Since her passing, we have learned that Alka Seltzer is one of the many cold medicines that contains Phenol propanolamine (PPA) which can cause hemorrhagic stokes or cerebral bleeding even with the first use. I am forwarding a list of other medications that currently use PPA.
These medicines are supposedly being recalled but my mother just purchased this medication less than two weeks ago. .

Pharmaceutical companies have known about this danger for years, we unfortunately, did not.
I urge you to review the list of medicines with PPA and avoid these medications. All drugs containing PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE are dangerous.

You may want to try calling the 800 number listed on most drug boxes and inquire about a REFUND. Please read this CAREFULLY. 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) seek alternative medicine.

The following medications contain Phenylpropanolamine :

Acutrim Diet Gum Appetite Suppressant

Acutrim Plus Dietary Supplements

Acutrim Maximum Strength Appetite Control

Alka-Seltzer Plus Children's Cold Medicine Effervescent

Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold medicine (cherry or ange)

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,

THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF!

To confirm these findings please take time to check the following:
