All about: D-Tann CT Suspension

Big Image
Generic Name: Carbetapentane/Diphenhydramine/Phenylephrine Suspension (car-beta-PEN-tane/dye-fen-HYE-dra-meen/fen-ill-EF-rin)
Brand Name: D-Tann CT and Dytan-CS

D-Tann CT Suspension is used for:

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

D-Tann CT Suspension is a decongestant, antihistamine, and cough suppressant combination. The decongestant works by constricting blood vessels and reducing swelling in the nasal passages. The antihistamine works by blocking the action of histamine, which helps reduce symptoms, such as watery eyes and sneezing. The cough suppressant works in the brain to help decrease the cough reflex to reduce a dry cough.

Do NOT use D-Tann CT Suspension if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in D-Tann CT 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
