What is acetaminophen, pseudoephedrine, and triprolidine?

Acetaminophen is a pain reliever and fever reducer.

Triprolidine is an antihistamine that reduces the natural chemical histamine in the body. Histamine can produce symptoms of sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and runny nose.

Pseudoephedrine is a decongestant that shrinks blood vessels in the nasal passages. Dilated blood vessels can cause nasal congestion (stuffy nose).

The combination of acetaminophen, pseudoephedrine, and triprolidine is used to treat runny or stuffy nose, sinus congestion, sneezing, and pain or fever caused by allergies or the common cold.

Acetaminophen, pseudoephedrine, and triprolidine may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about acetaminophen, pseudoephedrine, and triprolidine?

Always ask a doctor before giving a cough or cold medicine to a child. Death can occur from the misuse of cough or cold medicine in very young children. Do not use this medication if you have used an MAO inhibitor such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), phenelzine (Nardil), rasagiline (Azilect), selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam), or tranylcypromine (Parnate) within the past 14 days. Do not take more of this medication than is recommended. An overdose of acetaminophen can cause damage to your liver. Do not use any other over-the-counter cold, allergy, or pain medication without first asking your doctor or pharmacist. If you take certain products together you may accidentally take too much of a certain drug. Read the label of any other medicine you are using to see if it contains acetaminophen, triprolidine, or pseudoephedrine. Avoid drinking alcohol. It can increase the risk of liver damage while you are taking acetaminophen. If you drink more than three alcoholic beverages per day, do not take acetaminophen without your doctor"s advice, and never take more than 2 grams (2000 mg) per day.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking acetaminophen, pseudoephedrine, and triprolidine?

Do not use this medication if you have used an MAO inhibitor such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), phenelzine (Nardil), rasagiline (Azilect), selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam), or tranylcypromine (Parnate) within the past 14 days. Serious, life-threatening side effects can occur if you take a decongestant before the MAO inhibitor has cleared from your body. Do not take this medication if you are allergic to acetaminophen, triprolidine, or pseudoephedrine, or to other antihistamines or decongestants, diet pills, stimulants, or ADHD medications.

  • liver disease, alcoholism, or cirrhosis of the liver;

  • glaucoma;

  • kidney disease;

How should I take acetaminophen, pseudoephedrine, and triprolidine?
