February 5 is National Wear Red Day®.
Each year, the first Friday of February is a day when we call attention to the #1 killer of women: heart disease. It is also a day when we celebrate
the women who are taking action to protect their hearts.
National Wear Red Day reminds women and those who love them to take action against heart disease. It urges women to eat healthier, be more physically active,
and talk to their doctors about their personal risk for heart disease.
LifeScience Moment: Basic amphetamine nasal inhalers become available only by prescription.
On February 10, 1959, the FDA announced that nasal inhalers containing basic amphetamine can be sold only by prescription. Previously this
product (used for relieving nasal congestion) had been sold directly to the public.
Basic amphetamine has been replaced by safer, more effective prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) products for relieving nasal congestion.
