Common Cold Medicines Cause Strokes in Women – Check Your Medicine Cabinet Today

Comments Off

Phenylpropanolamine. Phenylpropanolamine. Phenylpropanolamine. This is the word you must look for on your cold medicines. If it’s there, throw the bottle out or take it back for a refund. A study has shown that women have a greater chance of getting a hemorrhagic stroke, which is a bleeding in the brain, in the three day period after they start use of the cold medicine. Women aged 18-49 were the ones afftected and no similar problems were found in men. The Food and Drug Administration recommends that everyone seek alternative medicine. Here is the list of the medicines involved. If you or a loved one were affected, contact an attorney promptly.
