The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is taking steps to remove phenylpropanolamine (PPA) from all drug products and has requested that all drug companies discontinue marketing products containing PPA. In addition, FDA has issued a public health advisory concerning phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride. This drug is an ingredient used in many over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription cough and cold medications as a decongestant and in OTC weight loss products.

I’ve listed 35 of these medications below. You may want to try calling the 800 number listed on most drug boxes and inquire about a REFUND.

You should STOP TAKING anything containing this ingredient immediately! 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 is recommending that everyone (even children) seek alternative medicine.
