Deconamine SR (chlorpheniramine / pseudoephedrine) for Allergic Rhinitis "I am very angry, upset, frustrated when I had heard recently that is medication has been taken off the market recently, This is the only medication that works on my allergies and believe me I have tried Allerga, Clartin, Zyrtec, Benadryl, Sudafed, you name it, tried it. Nothing else works. My eyes are swelling, my nose is running and I am using 2 different medicines just to keep it at bay, but it not clearing it up. Please get this back out to the pharmacy. There are a lot of us that use this medication that are severe allergy suffers. Help us get this back to the pharmacy."

Deconamine SR (chlorpheniramine / pseudoephedrine) for Allergic Rhinitis "This is the best combo medication I've ever taken, including both OTC and prescription, for year-round allergies. I am also asthmatic, and this does not aggravate that condition. It also does not dry out your mouth like so many others do. It really does last. I've used it for 7 years now, until recently the cost skyrocketed. Out of reach for me, as I have no insurance coverage. This has left me with daily headaches from allergies, since I've found nothing to replace it."

Deconamine SR (chlorpheniramine / pseudoephedrine) for Allergic Rhinitis "I also am upset. This medication I have been taking for about 28 years. I have been on everything else. Nothing works like my Deconamine. I have been hitting up all of the pharmacies around where I live trying to get what they have left. I too, am a chronic sinusitis suffer. 6-8 infections a year. And my Deconamine was the other thing that gave me a little relief. Please do something. We need this medicine!"

Chlor-Trimeton Allergy Decongestant (chlorpheniramine / pseudoephedrine) for Allergic Rhinitis "I took this product as Nolamine when it first came on the market, and took it through my pregnancy with my daughter, no ill side effects (though I would not recommend that for everyone.) When it was removed from the market, I could not find an allergy medicine that worked as well. I have tried Zyrtec and Claritin, neither of which worked. I discovered that Clor-Timetron has the active ingredient that Nolamine had, and have been taking that. It is the only medicine that works for me."

Deconamine SR (chlorpheniramine / pseudoephedrine) for Sinusitis "This is the ONLY sinus/allergy medication that worked consistently for me. My doctor prescribed the Deconamine SR, which has a sustained release of 12 hrs. FINALLY, after years of trying all the other prescription antihistamines/decongestants, when I took this, I could wake up without a sore throat from drainage, or dry mouth from over-zealous decongestants. It worked like a charm! "

Deconamine (chlorpheniramine / pseudoephedrine) for Allergic Rhinitis "Deconamine is the only allergy medication that I have taken that relieves my symptoms of watery eyes, running noses, sneezing, coughing. It does not hype me up or make sleeping impossible or hard to fall asleep. I usually only have to take 1 capsule daily to relieve my symptoms. It also dissolves easily as other medications were passed through my bowel undissolved. Unfortunately it is no longer available in my area of Elkin NC. "

Deconamine (chlorpheniramine / pseudoephedrine) for Allergic Rhinitis "This is the only drug on the market that has worked to keep me healthy year round. It keeps my lungs clear and prevents it from turning into bronchitis, which if not treated with antibiotics then turns to pneumonia."

For Allergic Rhinitis "After taking Actifed for over 40 years but it was discontinued. Now we have this and I must stop using it because it jacks up my blood pressure and interacts with my Levothyroxine. Great, now I suffer from allergies."

Deconamine SR (chlorpheniramine / pseudoephedrine) for Allergic Rhinitis "This medication helped me. I took it for years. I don't know who took this off the market. You claim to care about people, if you really cared you would be interested in what helped people."
