A common ingredient may increase your risk of stroke or early death.

Over the counter drugs like alka-seltzer cold medicine, BC allergy sinus cold medicine, Comtrex deep chest cold and congestion relief, Contac 12-hour cold capsules etc., all have something in common. They all contain the ingredient “Phenylpropanolamine”(PPA). This ingredient has the ability to put you at risk for a stroke, especially in women.

Six billion of the above drugs were sold in 1999 alone. The FDA has received reports of hemorrhagic strokes (bleeding in the brain), along with high blood pressure since 1969. (All consumers of Phenylpropanolamine)

People are urged to stop using drugs that contain this ingredient, and switch to herbal medicine. Herbal
medicine is highly recommended for children. PPA not only has a negative long term effect on a child’s health, but it also may be the link to childhood asthma and circulatory problems.
