How should this medicine be used?

Chlorphen-12 comes as an extended-release (long-acting) tablet and is usually taken twice a day in the morning and evening as needed. Follow the directions on the package carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take Chlorphen-12 exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Check nonprescription cough and cold product labels carefully before using 2 or more products at the same time. These products may contain the same active ingredient(s) and taking them together could cause you to receive an overdose. This is especially important if you will be giving cough and cold medications to a child.

If you are giving Chlorphen-12 to a child, read the package label carefully to be sure that it is the right product for a child of that age. Before you give Chlorphen-12 to a child, check the package label to find out how much medication the child should receive. For children under 12 years, ask the doctor.

Swallow Chlorphen-12 tablets whole. Do not break, crush, chew, or open them.

Other uses for this medicine.

Use Chlorphen-12 for All-Day Allergy Relief.

Chlorphen-12 is the only FDA-approved chlorpheniramine maleate, 12mg extended release tablet available in the market today.

Love this stuff especially in July in New Mexico. My allergies are bees, cats, pollen, grasses, and dust. I can ride horseback up the mountain no runny nose, itchy eyes and breathing problems. It's better than zyrtec, Allegra, benadryl, sudafed, and Claritin. Its faster than nasonex too. No steroid shots anymore. For me I don't like the way that the other meds make me really drowsy or stop working after 3 hours or take too long to work. This helps out through the day and I can function with 4 kids 2 dogs and 3 cats 4 horses a garden and a field of alfalfa. Takes care of my allergies no problem. Why don't I see this on shelves more? This pack lasted for the summer and I had to share!1

For the past 15 of my 24 years, I've been taking antihistamines for allergies. I'm allergic to mold, pet dander, mildew, dust and pollen, which cumulatively seems to make me allergic to life.

It all started with Allegra, Zyrtec, and Claritin, and nothing worked. Finally my doctor gave me a RX called Bromfed. Worked like a charm. Sometimes I'd pickup my refill and it would say Bromfenex instead.

Then, after 10 years of taking it, one day I went to the pharmacy to pick it up and they told me it had been discontinued. WHAT?! I was beside myself. How could they do that to me?

After a lot of googling, I decided to order Chlor-Trimeton 12-hour. Super expensive compared to my 3-month, insurance-subsidized Bromfed RX. But lo and behold, it works.

I love this product because it's cheaper and doesn't become unavailable like the name brand one seems to.

Thank you for existing Chlorphen-12. Please never ever stop.1

Switched from Loratadine (Claritin & similar) to Chlorphen-12 this spring and I'm glad I did. While Loratadine helped with my runny nose, and minimized my other reactions, I still tended to get terribly itchy and watery eyes and headaches on bad allergen days. Also, I tended to metabolize the Loratadine 24 hour pills quicker than intended, so by 16 hours in or so (usually at night) they weren't working well at all. The 12 hour refresh seems to make a big difference, and Chlorphen-12 seems to be a little stronger. It does a better job of minimizing my itchy eyes and still fixes everything else, without being as drowsy-enducing as something like benedryl. In fact, I've had no noticable drowsiness on Chlorphen-12 even though it is a listed side effect. If anyone is finding their 24 hour medicine is wearing off just a little too quickly, or just isn't strong enough, I would give this a try.1
