All about: Alenaze-D Elixir

Big Image
Generic Name: Brompheniramine/Phenylephrine Elixir, Liquid, and Syrup (brome-fen-IR-a-meen/fen-ill-EF-rin)
Brand Name: Examples include Alenaze-D and Decon-A

Alenaze-D Elixir 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.

Alenaze-D Elixir 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 Alenaze-D Elixir if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Alenaze-D Elixir
  • you have severe high blood pressure, severe heart blood vessel disease, rapid heartbeat, or severe heart problems
  • you take sodium oxybate (GHB) or if 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.
