The Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning to the manufacturers of unauthorized medicines for cough and cold which include the drug carbinoxamine. The companies have been given time from 30 to 90 days by which time they should completely stop selling these medicines.

The manufacturers could consider applying to the FDA for approval but it is mandatory to prove that the drug is safe for use on children. Those companies that choose to continue selling the drug despite the warning will be penalized, the FDA has warned.
