Silly Bahraini Girl is a very Bahraini girl - albeit her Arabic is a bit funny ;)

I will not bore you with details here but Silly Bahraini Girl is on holiday and is so bored that she started seriously surfing the net, to see all that her Bahraini brothers and sisters are writing in Arabic.

So while surfing one of the sites, Silly Bahraini Girl stumbles on a post warning people from certain medicines which the post says are dangerous but would not elaborate more.

Does anyone know why the following medicines are "dangerous"?:

1. Conta-Flu
2. Antiflu
3. Nova-C-M
4. Coldact
5. Flustop
6. Flurest
7. Rhinomol
8. Pararhinol
9. Michaelon
10. Noflu
11. Coricidin D
14. Eskornade
15. Night and Day
16.Vegaskine Aduls Syrup
17. Sinutab
18.Rhinopront Syrup
19. Denoral

This might shed some light on the issue. Please note the last SENTANCE of the warning and the date.

On November 6, 2000, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration put out a warning on drugs containing phenylpropanolamine (PPA) as its use has been associated with strokes. Since that time, drug manufacturers have voluntarily removed PPA from their products .

What is phenylpropanolamine ?

Phenylpropanolamine is a decongestant. It works by constricting (shrinking) blood vessels (veins and arteries) in your body. Constriction of blood vessels in your sinuses, nose, and chest allows drainage of those areas, which decreases congestion .

Brand Names Of Drugs Containing (PPA):

contaflu, antiflu,coldact,flustop,flurest, rhinamol,pararhinol,noflu,coricidinD, rhinogesic,contac12,eskornade,nigt&day,vegaskine,sinutab, rhinopront nova-c-m .
