ban the use of phenylpropanolamine in OTC products

Experts are now urging the FDA to ban the use of phenylpropanolamine in OTC products.

This is due to a possible increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke in young women using appetite suppressants...and patients taking cough and cold products that contain phenylpropanolamine (PPA).

Caution patients not to exceed recommended doses of PPA-containing products...Acutrim, Dexatrim, Contac, Dimetapp, etc.
