What conditions does carbinoxamine and pseudoephedrine treat?

Carbinoxamine and pseudoephedrine are two different drugs combined into one medication that is used to treat colds and allergies. The carbinoxamine is an antihistamine that helps relieve allergy and cold symptoms, such as watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose and itching.

This medication is no longer available in the United States, however, it may be available elsewhere.
