Urgent Medica; Warning Alert!! - Medicine Removal

9) URGENT MEDICAL WARNING Alert!! - Medicine Removal

Message from Terisa Truesdell

Hello All, Please read and copy this notice to the people you love. This is not a matter to be taken lightly. This medical alert was broadcast on the news. Stop taking anything containing the ingredient Phenylpropanolamine. It has been linked to increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) among women ages 18-49 in the three days after starting us of medication. Problems were not found in men, but the FDA has recommended that everyone (even children) seek alternative medicines. Having taken a few of this medicine at one time or another, I called CVS to see if there was any truth to this email. They said that it was so, and if! I have any of these products at home, I should stop using them. CVS has removed all products containing this chemical from their shelves.
