What is a small white pill that has a 44 462 on it

The small, round, white-colored pill with imprint 44 462 on it has been identified as Sinus & allergy chlorpheniramine maleate 4 mg / phenylephrine hydrochloride 10 mg.

This drug temporarily relieves symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, nasal congestion, itching of the nose or throat, sinus congestion and pressure due to hay fever. Its main purpose is antihistamine and nasal decongestant.

In the news, allergy sinus medications recalled due to a labeling error. Vita Health Products Inc., in consultation with Health Canada, is voluntarily recalling certain lots of "Life", "Exact", "Rexall" and "Tanta" brands of its Extra Strength Allergy Sinus Medication due to a labeling error. The warning statement to not use these products if you have chronic lung disease is missing from the inner printing on the outer carton. Read more here.
