Phenylpropanolamine ("PPA") is an ingredient found in some prescription and over-the-counter nasal decongestants, cough/cold products, and weight control products. PPA has been linked to hemorrhagic stroke by scientists at Yale University School of Medicine.

The study found that some individuals, particularly young women, were more likely to suffer hemorrhagic strokes after taking certain products containing PPA. The FDA has recently banned the sale of over-the-counter products containing PPA. The most common toxic effects of PPA is hypertension and headache. In combination with caffeine, ephedrine, or an antihistamine, it can cause a toxic reaction resulting in rapid heart rate.

Some over-the-counter drugs that contained PPA include:
- Acutrim Diet Gum Appetite Suppressant Plus Dietary   Supplements
- Acutrim Maximum Strength Appetite Control
- Alka-Seltzer Plus Children's Cold Medicine Effervescent
- Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold Medicine Original
