General Information

Dimetapp Elixir is an effective, pleasant tasting, sugar free formulation for relief of cold and allergy symptoms.

It contains an antihistamine (brompheniramine maleate) to relieve a runny nose, itchy, watery eyes and sneezing and a decongestant (phenylephrine hydrochloride) to relieve nasal and sinus congestion.

Drug Interactions

Sympathomimetics: Concomitant administration of phenylephrine with other sympathomimetic agents may cause a rise in blood pressure, as well as produce additive effects and increased toxicity. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors: May produce a hypertensive crisis. Anti-hypertensive agents: Use with certain antihypertensive agents may diminish their antihypertensive effect. CNS Depressants: (Including alcohol, tricyclic antidepressants) - potentiation of the sedative effect. Use in Pregnancy: Category B2. Safety in pregnancy has not been established, therefore Dimetapp Elixir should not be used in pregnant women, or those likely to become pregnant, unless the expected benefits outweigh any potential risk. Australian categorisation definition of: Category: B2 Drugs which have been taken by only a limited number of pregnant women and women of childbearing age, without an increase in the frequency of malformation or other direct or indirect harmful effects on the human foetus having been observed. Studies in animals are inadequate or may be lacking, but available data show no evidence of an increased occurrence of foetal damage. Use in Lactation: It is not known whether Dimetapp Elixir is excreted in breast milk nor whether it has a harmful effect on the new-born. Therefore Dimetapp Elixir is not recommended for nursing mothers unless the expected benefits outweigh any potential risk.

Warnings

Due to the antihistamine content of Dimetapp Elixir, mild drowsiness may occur (less than 20 per cent of the population is affected). Therefore until the response has been determined the patient should be cautioned against engaging in operations requiring alertness, such as driving, or operating machinery. Patients should be warned about the additive effects with alcohol and other CNS depressants. Warnings: 1. Dimetapp Elixir should not be taken by patients with hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, thyroid disease, asthma, glaucoma or difficulty in urination due to enlargement of the prostate gland, except under the advice and supervision of a doctor. Antihistamines are more likely to cause dizziness, sedation, and hypotension in elderly patients.

2. Patients are advised not to take Dimetapp Elixir for persistent or chronic cough such as occurs with smoking, asthma, emphysema, or if cough is accompanied by excessive phlegm (mucus) unless directed by a doctor.
3. A persistent cough may be a sign of a serious condition. If symptoms do not improve within 7 days (or within 48 hours in the case of children), tend to recur, or are accompanied by fever, rash, or persistent headache, patients should consult a doctor.
4. This medication may cause drowsiness; alcohol, sedatives and tranquillisers may increase the drowsiness effect. Do not give Dimetapp Elixir to children who are taking sedatives or tranquillisers without first consulting their doctor. Caution should be used when driving a motor vehicle or operating machinery due to possible drowsiness effects.
5. Dimetapp Elixir is not recommended for children under 12 months of age. Dimetapp Elixir should not be given to children under 2 years of age without medical advice.
6. Doses in excess of the recommended dosage may cause nervousness, dizziness or sleeplessness.
7. Dimetapp Elixir may cause excitability, especially in children.
