Over counter Drug RecallImportant Drug Recall: This is why I keep saying to avoid over the counter stuff. You are taking your life into your own hands. Do you really wish to abandon by dying, your children and family by taking the chance of putting this chemical into your body??
All over the counter allopathic pharmaceutical 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, AND please pass this information 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 seek an alternative medicine.

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 the 800 number 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! PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL ON YOUR MAILING LIST so people are informed and can pass it along to their families.
We used to be able, as adult Americans, to go to need to know books and sites, to find out anything we wished to know about the AMA and so on. The constitutions first amendment insured freedom of speech through which our right to know has in the past been upheld. We cannot do this now.
The doors have been closed to us by corporations, because of proprietary patent information. This means they do not have to tell us anything. This began after the civil war when a clerk made an idle footnote on a supreme court ruling, and that footnote, set a precedent from that time that all corporations were natural persons with equal protection rights under the law. We are at the mercy of our government, the AMA and the pharmaceutical companies (all corporations) to bring us completely under their control. It is all about money and power. THEY DO NOT CARE if their products kill or disable, they just want the money.
To confirm these findings please take time to check the following:

There never has been a recall for any remedy in Homeopathy. There never will be. The AMA and FDA who doesnt think homeopathy works, claims it is folklore, and doesnt believe in it at all, NOW is interfering with its sales. It is now required to have prescriptions for many remedies that are very important. AND at the same time has put the fear into allopathic doctors to NOT write prescriptions for fear of retribution from the AMA!
We are losing our Civil Rights given to us by the people that formed our United States of America so many years ago, and done so well.
God Bless Us All, Sabra
