I used to take these pills as a child in the 60s thru 70s for allergies. does it still exist? and what are the ingredients? its a round coated green small tablet. thank you for your help sylvia ## Pyrobenzamine was prescribed for the relief of respiratory ailment. ## I was given pyrobenzamine as a kid for rose fever - I think it was in the 40's.

Actifed banned

Hi all, I wanted to find out why Actifed (as a brand) got banned by the United and states and JNJ stopped producing it and came up with Sudafed. Is there a reason why? Is there a link to the legal suit that was filed against a JnJ. Any information about why JnJ stopped producing it would help. Thanks. ## Irebel is on the right track. One of the ingredients in Actifed was Pseudoephedrine [1], and due to regularly increasing rates of abuse, and large purchases used to manufacture illicit substances, its status was changed, and to gain better control of the supply, it was moved behind the pharmacy counter, so someone could only purchase a certain amount, plus they had to sign for it, and show identification when buying it. Once this happened, it severely cut down on sales, and some manufac...

Medication reactions

My husband is sensitive to medications. When we find one he can tolerate, it has to always be by that manufacturer, otherwise he has abdominal pain, bloating, gas, etc. when he starts a new medication, sometimes have to try several manufacturers before we can find one he tolerates. Manufacturers are changing all the time. Most likely he has a sensitivity or allergy to a filler. Is there any way to find a way or is there a way to find out what causes these problems? I live in fear every 3 months when I have to refill any of his 7 meds. I need help. Any suggestions? ## Has your husband ever been tested for allergies, and sensitivities? Have you tried checking the inactive ingredients of his medications to see if you can pinpoint what might be causing the problem when he tries a new one? R...

dark spots on skin

Dark spots on face and one on kneck. My doctor said it looks like spots from a allergic reaction to something. Every once in a while if I eat something, my bottom lip starts to swell then hours later, the dark spots start to itch and if I scratch, form redness around the spot. ## The best suggestion I can make is that you consult an allergist/immunologist, or a dermatologist to get a proper diagnosis, and discover possible treatment options. You can learn more about allergies here. How long has this been going? How many spots are there?

allergex nightmares

Hi I have taken allergex many times before as I am extremely allergic with no major side effects. I am in the middle of exams so I decided to take one allergex at night to help me sleep and to prevent allergies but I am feeling really paranoid and I get nightmares that keep me up all night. Can it be because of the allergex or is this just due to exam stress? ## Hello, Suzi! How are you doing? It is rather difficult to say what might be causing it, it could be do to either one.
