"In the largest, most comprehensive, nationwide study to examine the prevalence of allergies from early childhood to old age, scientists from the National Institutes of Health report that allergy prevalence is the same across different regions "...
Histinex® HC (phenylephrine, hydrocodone, cpm) reduces excessive nasal secretions, diminishes edema of the nasal mucosa and congestion of the upper respiratory tract and abolishes or diminishes cough. The antihistaminic action of chlorpheniramine maleate reduces or abolishes allergenic responses of nasal tissue. Its action is complemented by the mild vasoconstrictor action of phenylephrine hydrochloride which provides a nasal decongestant effect. Cough suppression is a result of the action of hydrocodone bitartrate.
