What is brompheniramine and pseudoephedrine (Andehist NR Syrup, Bromaline, Bromhist Pediatric Drops, BroveX PSE, Di-Bromm, Histex SR, J-TanD PD, Lodrane D, LoHist PSB, Q-Tapp, Sildec, Touro Allergy, Ultrabrom, Ultrabrom PD)?

Brompheniramine is an antihistamine that reduces the effects of 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 brompheniramine and pseudoephedrine is used to treat runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and sinus congestion caused by allergies, the common cold, or the flu.

Brompheniramine and pseudoephedrine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
