Contraindications

Pyril Mal 16 mg/Phenyl HCl 5 mg/5 mL Suspension is contraindicated in patients with a known sensitivity to any of its components. It is also contraindicated in patients with severe hypertension or peripheral vascular insufficiency, as ischemia may result, with the risk of gangrene or thrombosis of compromised vascular beds.

Antihistamines are contraindicated for use in the treatment of lower respiratory tract conditions, including asthma.

Pyril Mal 16 mg/Phenyl HCl 5 mg/5 mL Suspension should not be used in patients receiving a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor.

Warnings and Precautions

5.1 General
Antihistamines may cause drowsiness and may have additive CNS effects with alcohol or other CNS depressants such as hypnotics, sedatives, and tranquilizers.

5.2 Special Risk Patients
Use with caution in patients with diabetes, hypertension, or cardiovascular disease, hyperthyroidism, narrow angle glaucoma, stenosing peptic ulcer, pyloroduodenal obstruction, and urinary bladder obstruction due to symptomatic prostatic hypertrophy and narrowing of the bladder neck.

Antihistamines may cause excitability, particularly in pediatric patients, but their combination with sympathomimetics may cause either mild stimulation or mild sedation.

Antihistamines are more likely to cause dizziness, sedation, and hypotension in elderly patients and should be prescribed with caution.

Adverse Reactions

The most common side effects associated with antihistamines include drowsiness, sedation, dryness of mucous membranes, and gastrointestinal effects. Serious side effects with oral antihistamines or sympathomimetics have been rare.

Other reactions may include:

Dermatologic: urticaria, drug rash, photosensitivity, pruritus

Cardiovascular: hypotension, hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, palpitations

Central Nervous System (CNS): disturbed coordination, tremor, irritability, insomnia, visual disturbances, weakness, nervousness, convulsion, headache, euphoria, and dysphoria

Genitourinary: urinary frequency, difficult urination

Gastrointestinal: epigastric discomfort, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation

Respiratory: tightness of chest and wheezing, shortness of breath

Hematologic: hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, agranulocytosis

To report SUSPECTED ADVERSE REACTIONS, contact FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.

Drug Interactions

MAO inhibitors may prolong and intensify the anticholinergic effects of antihistamines and the overall effects of sympathomimetic agents; therefore, concomitant administration of Pyril Mal 16 mg/Phenyl HCl 5 mg/5 mL Suspension and MAO inhibitors should be avoided (see 4 CONTRAINDICATIONS).

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

8.1 Pregnancy
Teratogenic Effects: Pregnancy Category C:
Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Pyril Mal 16 mg/Phenyl HCl 5 mg/5 mL Suspension. It is not known whether this product can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Pyril Mal 16 mg/Phenyl HCl 5 mg/5 mL Suspension should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

8.2 Labor and Delivery
Administration of phenylephrine in late pregnancy or labor may cause fetal anoxia or bradycardia by increasing contractility of the uterus and decreasing uterine blood flow.

8.3 Nursing Mothers
Because of the higher risk of intolerance of antihistamines in small infants generally, and in newborns and prematures in particular, Pyril Mal 16 mg/Phenyl HCl 5 mg/5 mL Suspension should not be administered to a nursing mother.

OVERDOSAGE:

10.1 Signs and Symptoms
These may vary from CNS depression to stimulation (restlessness to convulsions). Antihistamine overdosage in young children may lead to convulsions and death. Atropine-like signs and symptoms may be prominent.

10.2 Treatment
Induce vomiting if it has not occurred spontaneously. Precautions must be taken against aspiration, especially in infants, children, and comatose patients. If gastric lavage is indicated, isotonic or half-isotonic saline solution is preferred. Stimulants should not be used. If hypotension is a problem, vasopressor agents may be considered.

Pyril Mal Phenyl HCl - Clinical Pharmacology

Pyril Mal 16 mg/Phenyl HCl 5 mg/5 mL Suspension combines the antihistaminic action of pyrilamine with the sympathomimetic decongestant effect of phenylephrine.

12.1 Mechanism of Action
Pyrilamine maleate
Pyrilamine maleate is an antihistamine, H1 receptor blocking agent belonging to the ethylenediamine class of antihistamines. H1-blocking drugs inhibit the actions of histamine on smooth muscle, capillary permeability, and can both stimulate and depress the central nervous system. Pyrilamine also possesses anticholinergic and sedative properties.

Phenylephrine HCl
Phenylephrine hydrochloride is a decongestant which is a potent postsynaptic α-receptor agonist with little effect on β receptors of the heart. A direct action at receptors accounts for the greater part of its effects, only a small part being due to its ability to release norepinephrine. Phenylephrine has no effect on β-adrenergic receptors of the bronchi or peripheral blood vessels.
