The history of Primatene Tablets helping suffers of cold symptoms and to get relief from Asthma symptoms is long. The first Primatene Tablets were sold in 1954. The Primatene brand has built a long-time heritage for over-the-counter (OTC), relief of bronchial asthma. Primatene Tablet products are available in a 60ct package and it contains two active ingredients.
Both bronchodilator which is ephedrine HCL, and an expectorant, guaifenesin. Bronchodilators are a group of drugs that help widen the airways in the lungs for the treatment of asthma and other conditions which constrict airflow in the lungs. Bronchodilators widen the bronchioles, to increase the flow of air and improve breathing. Expectorants such as guaifenesin are drugs that loosen mucus or phlegm in the lungs. Expectorants stimulate increased release of respiratory secretions. The increased release of secretions lowers the viscosity (thickness) of the bronchial secretions and permits easier removal from the respiratory tract.
An expectorant may be used with productive and non-productive coughs, to increase the amount of sputum expectorated.
Buying Primatene is a easy as a few clicks of a mouse. Only DEA certified retailers can sell ephedrine supplements, and there are only a few in the world that are certified. However they provide as easy and efficient way to purchase Primatene online on the web. Primatene Tablets used to be available in most major food, and drug stores. However since the passing of the Combat Methamphetamine Act of 2005, which requires record keeping, training, certification, special rules on the storage of Primatene and it has to be locked up, most merchants no long carry the products because of this burden.
In the past Primatene was marketed as Dual Action, but a Food & Drug Administration ruling in July 1995 required manufacturers to discontinue marketing any (OTC) product containing Theophylline. This was an active ingredient in Primatene Dual Action Tablets at the time. Theophylline was reclassified as a prescription. Pfizer Consumer Healthcare stopped making Dual Action Tablets in January 1996 and formulated the product using ephedrine and guaifenesin.
Primatene Tablets are gluten-free. They obtain certification from all their suppliers for all raw materials that go into their products that any raw material was not made from wheat, rye, oats, triticale or barley and does not contain any ingredients that were derived from those grains. This is a big step in preventing additional allergies from kicking when while using it. On top of being Gluten free, Primatene is also free of Alcohol, Calcium, Calories, Phenylalanine, Potassium, Sodium, Sugar/sucrose, Corn/corn derivatives, Yeast, Gelatin, Gluten, Lactose, Salicylates, and Steroids.
