A small arrow pointing down

Bayview Pharmacy is pleased to present our compounded formulation of Chlorpheniramine Maleate 8 mg/Pseudoephedrine HCl 60 mg Slow Release Capsules. This unique formulation is specifically designed to alleviate symptoms associated with allergies, colds, and sinus congestion. It combines two active ingredients, Chlorpheniramine Maleate and Pseudoephedrine HCl, which synergistically work to provide symptom relief. Chlorpheniramine Maleate is an antihistamine that mitigates the body's response to allergens, while Pseudoephedrine HCl is a decongestant that aids in reducing nasal congestion.

This formulation is an effective treatment for allergies, colds, and sinus congestion, and is safe for use in adults and children over the age of 12. However, it is crucial to note that this formulation should not be used in conjunction with other antihistamines or decongestants, as this may heighten the risk of side effects.

How Does it Work

A small arrow pointing down

Chlorpheniramine Maleate 8 mg/Pseudoephedrine HCl 60 mg Slow Release Capsules are a compounded formulation designed to alleviate symptoms associated with allergies, hay fever, and the common cold. This unique formulation employs Methocel E4M, a controlled-release polymer, to encapsulate the active ingredients. This design ensures a gradual release of the medication over an extended period, providing sustained therapeutic effects and reducing the need for frequent dosing.

The active ingredients in this formulation are Chlorpheniramine Maleate, an antihistamine, and Pseudoephedrine HCl, a decongestant. Chlorpheniramine Maleate works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance in the body that triggers allergic symptoms. On the other hand, Pseudoephedrine HCl functions by constricting the blood vessels in the nasal passages, thereby reducing congestion and facilitating easier breathing.

When taken as directed, Chlorpheniramine Maleate 8 mg/Pseudoephedrine HCl 60 mg Slow Release Capsules can provide relief from a range of symptoms including sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, and other discomforts associated with allergies, hay fever, and the common cold. It is crucial to adhere to the recommended dosage and not exceed it. If you have any queries regarding the administration of this medication, it is advisable to consult with a healthcare professional.
