A: Hogil also manufactures and distributes Teldrin
HBP, the first and only SKU marketed to allergy sufferers with high blood pressure.
David Trager, who earlier this year became president of Hogil Pharmaceutical Co., notes that the firm's recently reformulated, decongestant-free Teldrin
HBP brand will appeal not only to a wide group of allergy sufferers but, more importantly, to those who endure high blood pressure.
Typical antihistamines include Benadryl,(R) Chlor Trimeton,(R)* Dimetane,(R)* Hismanal,(R) Nolahist,(R)* PBZ,(R) Polaramine,(R) Seldane,(R) Tavist(R)* and Teldrin
pulled its Contac, Dietac and Teldrin
brands off the market in March 1986 when rat poison was found in several capsules.
According to the F.B.I., he sought to create his own inside information by destroying the reputation of the giant SmithKline Beckman Corporation--specifically, by putting rat poison in the capsules of their patent medicines Contac, Dietac and Teldrin
. Marks allegedly bought Smith-Kline options that would net him a profit if the company's stocks fell, then laced the capsules with poison and notified the media.
The executive, who took the helm at the company in January, notes that he is proud of the accomplishments of his predecessors, who helped Hogil prosper by acquiring such over-the-counter brands as Orafix (denture adhesives), Sine-Off (sinus medication) and Teldrin
(allergy medication, which is also suitable for high-blood pressure patients).
