Certain Cold Medications No Longer Available In Stores

Last updated on Monday, March 7, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration released a list of cold, flu, and allergy medications that will no longer be sold in stores.

Butler University Director of Drug Information Services Amy Peak says the over-the-counter medications on the list are products that existed before the FDA required proof of effectiveness and safety.

Peak says the medications in question are limited in number and shouldn't affect the number of choices available.
