Actifed ~ Is it for You?

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:It does reduce runny nose and congestion.

Cons: It made me feel nervous and dizzy.

The Bottom Line: I would not recommend this product simply because it made me feel worse. It may work for others it just didn't work for me.


Actifed Cold & Sinus is an over the counter medicine that is a Antihistamine/ Nasal Decongestant/ Pain Reliever and Fever Reducer. But what I have experienced is that it made me feel worse. I am a light-weight when it comes to medicines. I took Actifed and it made me feel nervous and dizzy. This medicine may work for others, it just wasn't for me.

What Actifed Cold & Sinus is suppose to do:

* Actifed Cold & Sinus temporarily relieves nasal congestion due to the common cold or associated with sinusitis.
* Helps decongest sinus openings and passages; temporarily relieve sinus congestion and pressure.
* For the temporary relief of minor aches, pains, headache, and fever associated with a cold.
* Temporary relief of runny nose and sneezing, itching of the throat, and itchy, watery eyes due to hay fever.

Active Ingredients:

Active Ingredients in Actifed Cold & Sinus are:
Acetaminophen 500 mg.
Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride 30 mg.
Chlorpheniramine Maleate 2 mg.
It contains 3 maximum Strength Ingredients.
But it is Asprin-Free.


Recommended Dosage:

Adults and children 12 years of age and older 2 caplets. Dosage may be repeated every 6 hours if symptoms persist. Don not exceed 8 caplets in 24 hours. As always consult with your doctor for variance.

WARNINGS:

DO NOT EXCEED RECOMMENDED DOSAGE. If nervousness, dizziness, or sleeplessness occur, discontinue use and consult your doctor. Do not take for more than 10 days. If symptoms do not improve or are accompanied by a fever that lasts more than 3 days. Or if new symptoms occur, consult a doctor.

Do not take this product if you have heart disease, high blood pressure, or thyroid disease. Or if you have Diabetes, a breathing problem such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis, or if you have glaucoma or difficulty in urination due to enlargement of the prostate gland.

May cause excitability especially in children. May cause drowsiness. Do not take with alcohol, sedatives or tranquilizers. Do not take if you are using sedatives. Consult with your doctor first.

Use caution when driving or operating machinery. As with any drug if you are pregnant or nursing seek advice from a health professional.

KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN!:

KEEP THIS AND ALL DRUGS OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN! In case of accidental overdose, seek a professional for assistance or contact Poison Control Center immediately. Prompt medical attention is critical for adults as well as children, even if you don't notice any signs or symptoms.

My Final Recommendation about Actifed Cold & Sinus:

I would not recommend this medicine to anyone simply because of how if affected me. It made me feel nervous and dizzy. But it may affect others differently than it affected me. So I am not going to say not to use it , I would just not recommend it. It is a personal preference I guess.
