What is Ah-Chew D?

Drug Name: PHENYLEPHRINE TANN SUSP-ORAL
Other Brand Names: Nasop
Uses: Phenylephrine is used to temporarily treat stuffy nose symptoms caused by the common cold, allergies, or other breathing illnesses (e.g., sinusitis). Phenylephrine is a decongestant that works by reducing blood flow to the nose/sinuses, allowing the passages in the nose to open up. Cough-and-cold products have not been shown to be safe or effective in children younger than 6 years. Therefore, do not use this product to treat cold symptoms in children younger than 6 years unless specifically directed by the doctor. Some products (such as long-acting tablets/capsules) are not recommended for use in children younger than 12 years. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details about using your product safely. These products do not cure or shorten the length of the common cold and may cause serious side effects. To decrease the risk for serious side effects, carefully follow all dosage directions. Do not use this product to make a child sleepy. Do not give other cough-and-cold medication that might contain the same or similar ingredients (see also Drug Interactions section). Ask the doctor or pharmacist about other ways to relieve cough and cold symptoms (such as drinking enough fluids, using a humidifier or saline nose drops/spray).
