Discussions that mention diazepam

Allergies board


I have just purchased this product for my 8 year old daughter, however I found some info on the net which is a bit scary and I thought I should share it with you.

It has been suggested the situation in the U.S. is not much better than that in Asia. The popular cold and sinus remedies Yin Chiao Chieh Tu Pian, Bi Yan Pian, Pe Min Kan Wan, Gan Mao Ling, Zhong Gan Ling contain decongestants, analgesics or antihistamines. The Black Pills for Arthritis may contain phenylbutazone, hydrochlorothiazide, indomethacin, aminopyrine and acetaminophen, depending on manufacturer and batch. Diazepam is present in most samples. Most of these are prescription or discontinued drugs and have dangerous, even fatal consequences.

Pe Min Kan Wan, United Pharmaceutical Manufactory, Fushan.
Application: Sinus congestion.
Contaminants: Chlorpheniramine*.
Comment: There are many clean versions of this product by other manufacturers, including Fo Shan Herbal and Yu Lam Medicine Factory. Plum Flower also offers it in a non-contaminated version.

Let me know what you think. The lady assured me I was buying Fo Shan Herbal brand.
