All about: J-Tan D Suspension

Big Image
Generic Name: Brompheniramine/Phenylephrine Suspension (brome-fen-IR-a-meen/fen-ill-EF-rin)
Brand Name: Examples include BroveX-D and J-Tan D

J-Tan D Suspension is used for:

Relieving symptoms of sinus congestion, pressure, runny nose, and sneezing due to colds, upper respiratory infections, and allergies. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

J-Tan D Suspension is an antihistamine and decongestant combination. The antihistamine works by blocking the action of histamine, which helps reduce symptoms such as watery eyes and sneezing. The decongestant promotes sinus and nasal drainage, which relieves congestion and pressure.
