this medicine is contraindicated in individuals who have previously exhibited intolerance to it or to pseudoephedrine or triprolidine. this medicine is contraindicated in patients who are taking or have taken monoamine oxidase inhibitors within the preceding two weeks. The concomitant use of pseudoephedrine and this type of product may occasionally cause a rise in blood pressure. this medicine is contraindicated in patients with severe hypertension or severe coronary artery disease.

Adverse reactions:

Central nervous system depression or excitation may occur, drowsiness being reported most frequently. Sleep disturbance and, rarely, hallucinations have been reported. Skin rashes, with or without irritation, tachycardia, dryness of mouth, nose and throat, have occasionally been reported. Urinary retention has been reported occasionally in men receiving pseudoephedrine; prostatic enlargement could have been an important predisposing factor.


Concomitant use of this medicine with sympathomimetic agents, such as decongestants, tricyclic antidepressants, appetite suppressants and amfetamine-like psychostimulants, or with monoamine oxidase inhibitors which interfere with the catabolism of sympathomimetic amines, may occasionally cause a rise in blood pressure. Because of its pseudoephedrine content, this medicine may partially reverse the hypotensive action of drugs which interfere with sympathetic activity including bretylium, betanidine, guanethidine, debrisoquine, methyldopa, alpha-and beta-adrenergic blocking agents.
