The Food and Drug Administration orders 500 prescription cough, cold, and allergy products off the market.
A few of those medicines include Allerx, BPM, and Sildec Syrup.
These products have been removed because the FDA has not evaluated them for medication safety, effectiveness, and quality.
However, Medicine Arts Pharmacist William Bucy says there are alternatives.
"The same ingredients that are in those, that are several over-the-counter medications and other prescription medications. You could just probably just check with your pharmacist and they will be able to call your physician and recommend an alternative or recommend an over-the-counter product that you can substitute some of those," said William Bucy.
A lot of these medicines were pre-dated before the FDA could even test them.
