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.

Do NOT use J-Tan D Suspension if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in J-Tan D Suspension
  • you have severe high blood pressure, severe heart blood vessel disease, rapid heartbeat, or severe heart problems
  • you take sodium oxybate (GHB) or you have taken furazolidone or a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor (eg, phenelzine) within the last 14 days

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.
