Hi All,
Just got this in an email .....

All drugs containing PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE are being recalled.
You may want to try calling the 800 number listed on most drug boxes and
inquire about a REFUND. Please read this CAREFULLY. Also, please pass
this on to everyone you know.
 STOP TAKING anything containing this ingredient.
 
 It has been linked to increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in the
 brain)  among women ages 18-49 in the three days after starting use of medication.
 
 Problems were not found in men; however, the FDA recommended that everyone
 (even children) seek an alternative medicine.
 The following medications contain Phenylpropanolamine:
 
 Acutrim Diet Gum Appetite Suppressant
 Acutrim Plus Dietary Supplements
 Acu trim Maximum Strength Appetite Control
 Alka-Seltzer Plus Children's Cold Medicine
 Effervescent Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold medicine (cherry or orange)
 Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold Medicine
 Original Alka -Seltzer Plus Cold & Cough Medicine
 Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold & Flu Medicine
 Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold & Sinus Effervescent
 Alka Seltzer Plus Night-Time Cold Medicine BC
 Allergy Sinus Cold Powder BC Sinus Cold Powder
 Comtrex Flu Therapy & Fever Relief
 Day &Night Contac 12-Hour Cold Capsules
Contac 12 Hour Caplets
 Coricidin D Cold, Flu & Sinus
 Dexatrim Caffeine Free
 Dexatrim Extended Duration
 Dexatrim Gelcaps
 Dexatrim Vitamin C/Caffeine Free
 Dimetapp Cold & Allergy Chewable Tablets
 Dimetapp Cold & Cough Liqui-Gels
 Dimetapp DM Cold & Cough Elixir
 Dimetapp Elixir
 Dimetapp 4 Hour Liquid Gels
 Dimetapp 4 Hour Tablets
  Dimetapp 12 Hour Extentabs Tablets
 Naldecon DX Pediatric Drops
 Permathene Mega-16
 Robitussin CF
 Tavist-D 12 Hour Relief of Sinus & Nasal Congestion ;
 Triaminic DM Cough Relief
 Triaminic Expectorant Chest & Head
 Triaminic Syrup Cold & Allergy
 Triaminic Triaminicol Cold & Cough
 
 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,
 
PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF!
 DO PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL ON YOUR MAILING LIST
so people are informed.
 They can then pass it along to their families.
 To confirm these findings please take time to check the following

Er, call me think but what's an urban legend? I am thinking along the lines of it being a hoax, correct?

Yours,

Thanks for clarifying this for me guys, I appreciate it immensely.

Since it's been around from 2000, that means we here in the nether regions of the planet are still in the dark over a lot of things, LOL

After seeing this thread I asked a pharmacist if it is still possible to buy phenylpropanolamine (PPA) and was told that it is not. I was also told that pseudephedrine will soon not be the only decongestant available because a new alternative would be both safer and less easily converted to controlled substances.
