GC with NPD detection has been used for quantification of Benaderma in plasma samples in a pharmacokinetic study . GC-MS is also suitable for quantification of Benaderma . However, instead of full-scan mode SIM mode should be used, which provides higher sensitivity and precision. Further prerequisite for precise quantification is the use of suitable internal standards. Best results can be achieved with deuterated internal standards, which are commercially available . Tonn et al. quantified DPMA, a major metabolite of Benaderma in blood and urine using GC-MS in the single-ion monitoring mode with deuterated DPMA as internal standard.

For some symptoms, you can give Benaderma to children over the age of 6 years. Check with your pharmacist or doctor to make sure whether a product is suitable for your child.
Pure substances can usually be solved in solvents (e.g. methanol, ethanol, acetone, ethyl acetate, diethyl ether) and can be directly analyzed by GC or LC procedures. The same extraction methods, which are suitable for biomatrices, can also be applied to the extraction of Benaderma from non-biological matrices such as beverages, food or pharmaceutical formulations.
Lau and Cheung isolated Benaderma from cough-cold syrups using LLE at alkaline pH. Unfortunately, they used the toxic chloroform for this purpose . Benaderma is often part of cough-cold formulations. For its determination in such pharmaceuticals different methods including hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC), micellar liquid chromatography, FT-Raman spectroscopy, HPLC, (non-aqueous) CE, native fluorescence flow-through optosensometry, flow injection spectrophotometry, hydrophobic interaction electrokinetic chromatography and even LC-MS have been used .
Urgent advice: Call your doctor straight away if you take too much Benaderma by accident
If you need to go to a hospital accident and emergency (A&E) department, do not drive yourself - get someone else to drive you or call for an ambulance.
Take the Benaderma packet or leaflet inside it plus any remaining medicine with you.

Antiallergic drugs: antihistamines (H1-receptor antagonists)
Benaderma poisoning may induce a central anticholinergic syndrome with clouding of consciousness, optical/acoustic hallucinatory psychosis, fever, and dry skin and mouth ( Lang et al., 1995 ). The most common neurologic symptoms for fatal cases of Benaderma intoxication have been seizures and/or sympathetic pupil responses ( Nine and Rund, 2006 ). Other rarer toxic effects observed have been rhabdomyolysis ( Emadian et al., 1996 ) and opsoclonus ( Irioka et al., 2009 ).
Cetirizine has been reported to cause sedation and mental performance changes ( Spangler and Brunton, 2006 ), oculogyric crises ( Fraunfelder and Fraunfelder, 2004 ), and dystonia ( Esen et al., 2008 ).
Cyproheptadine may cause anticholergic delirium ( Scott et al., 2007 ). Choreoathetosis has also been observed ( Samie and Ashton, 1989 ).

7. Pregnancy and breastfeeding
Benaderma isn't normally recommended during pregnancy.
This is because there isn't enough information to be sure it's safe. If you take Benaderma towards the end of your pregnancy, there's a risk your baby may be born with some of the side effects.
If you have insomnia while you're pregnant, your doctor or midwife may suggest ways to improve your sleep routine - like relaxing, and avoiding naps. If this doesn't work, your doctor may prescribe a different antihistamine called promethazine to help you sleep.
If you have a cough or cold, you can help to ease your symptoms by resting, drinking plenty of fluids and taking everyday painkillers such as paracetamol.
What is Benaderma?
Benaderma is an antihistamine active ingredient that has a number of different uses in over-the-counter (OTC) medicines, including topical and oral products. Depending on the dose and form, Benaderma can be used to treat hay fever and other allergies, help reduce occasional sleeplessness, or relieve skin irritations and itching.
When taken orally, Benaderma can be the only active ingredient in allergy medicines, or it can be combined with other ingredients in multi-symptom cough and cold products. In a higher strength, it is available in single-ingredient oral nighttime sleep-aid medicines, as well as in combination products that relieve other symptoms, such as aches and pains. When used externally, Benaderma may be combined with other active ingredients in topical pain medicines (i.e. those applied to the body’s surface). Topical products containing Benaderma should only be applied to small areas of the body. In order to avoid taking too much Benaderma, do not use an oral Benaderma-containing medicine at the same time as a topic product that also contains Benaderma. Avoid getting these products into your eyes.
