Today, I was looking through the Manufacturers forum,and I saw a post that had to do with cough syrup. specifically, saying that they finally found a PN TN safe cough syrup. Triaminic cough syrup was listed as not safe, and after calling to verify this with the company, I am so upset! Triaminic contains peanut and treenut dirivatives, but does not label for them.

Is there no labelling laws for medication?

Nope. Medicine is exempt. Only active ingredients need to be listed. The rest is a protected trade secret.

The peanut protein in the vaccines is probably the cause of the fatal peanut allergy. It does not have to appear on the package insert.
