PPA

North Carolina PPA lawyer

The chemical phenylpropanolamine (PPA) was an active ingredient in widely used prescription and over-the-counter medication including diet drugs, nasal decongestants and cough medications. Annually, consumers in the United States bought about 6 billion doses of products containing PPA.

Phenylpropanolamine, however, is suspected as a cause of hundreds of hemorrhagic strokes per year in patients age 18 to 49. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall notice in November 2000. Products that contained PPA include:

  • Acutrim Weight Control Candy and Tablets
  • Dexatrim Weight Control Candy and Tablets
  • Permathene Mega 16 Weight Control Tablets
  • Robitussin CF Cough Syrup
  • Tavist D Cold, allergy and sinus tablet
  • Triaminic DM Cough Syrup

PPA side effects

PPA side effects included a risk of hemorrhagic stroke, or bleeding into the brain, especially in women.
