Formula Information

A small arrow pointing down

Brompheniramine Maleate 8 mg/Pseudoephedrine HCl 120 mg Slow Release Capsules is a compounded medication designed to alleviate symptoms associated with allergies, sinusitis, and nasal congestion. This formulation combines two active ingredients, brompheniramine maleate and pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, which synergistically work to provide relief from symptoms such as allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, nasal congestion, cough, and bronchitis.

The capsules are formulated with Methocel E4M, a type of controlled-release polymer. This innovative technology allows for a gradual and sustained release of the active ingredients over an extended period of time. This slow release mechanism offers several benefits including prolonged therapeutic effects, reduced dosing frequency, and improved patient compliance, particularly beneficial for medications requiring a controlled and prolonged release profile.

Brompheniramine maleate, an antihistamine, functions by blocking the action of histamine, a chemical released by the body during an allergic reaction. This action helps to alleviate symptoms such as sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and runny nose. On the other hand, pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, a decongestant, works by constricting the blood vessels in the nasal passages. This reduces nasal congestion and facilitates easier breathing.

This compounded formulation is an effective treatment for the symptoms of allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, nasal congestion, cough, and bronchitis. However, it is crucial to understand that this medication is not intended to treat the underlying conditions causing these symptoms. It should be used strictly as directed by a healthcare provider. If you have any questions or concerns about this formulation, it is recommended to consult with your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
