Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Tussionex has hydrocodone and chlorpheniramine. For adults and children above 12 yrs the recommended dose is: 5 mL (1 teaspoonful) every 12 hours; should not exceed 10 mL (2 teaspoonfuls) in 24 hours. The measurement should be accurate to prevent overdosage. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn about how many days will I be in pretty bad withdrawal from tussionex? I was addicted to hydrocodone for four years. Up to 13 or so 10 mg pills a day. Then I stared feeling better by day three. Physical part was finished day four. Emotionally, it took me thirty days to feel myself. So, given it's s different drug now(tussionex) and not four years but three months. What am I looking at withdrawal wise? Days? Symptoms?
1003776 tn?1360201182 This was often helped by the prescription given to her by her loving doctor, it was tussionex. After having this problem for years, one year, 2009 in January, this lady's illness was much worse than ever before. So the tussionex was prescribed again and again and again, hoping that after many tests, the problem would be solved and she could come off the tussionex. But lo and behold no problem could be found for that fair maiden and she remained on the tussionex for many, many months.
Avatar m tn Well, tussionex is part hydrocodone which is a semi-synthetic opioid and part chlorpheniramine which is a type of antihistamine. So some people can be more sensitive to the hydrocodone (vicadin) part of the cough syrup. It is a fairly addictive drug and some people have genetics (an enzyme called cpy 2d6) that increases the duration the hydrocodone is elevated in their blood. This leads to exaggerated effects or feeling of euphora and other symptoms.
Avatar n tn Imagine my consternation when I logged in today to find my questions regarding the Tussionex deleted! Why was this done? Just because nobody else does Tussionex, because it isn't as popular as, say, Vicodin or Oxycontin? Well, doc, you should know I think that even if my drug of choice isn't as popular as the others, the addiction is just as real. I would appreciate it if you could take the time to answer my question, even if my drug isn't as popular as the others.
Avatar m tn Because Tussionex contains hydrocodone, it is in the controlled substance class III due to its potential for abuse and drug dependency. I believe you have a very conscientious doctor who is concern about your wellness and health. She is cautioning your against taking Tussionex long term, and she has a good reason. ************************************************************************************** Per FDA News Release on March 2008, "The U.S.
Avatar f tn Your body is known to hypersensitive to quinolones to which levaquin belongs to. Tussionex contains hydrocodone which may also be responsible. But it is difficult to tell, which one is the offending drug. The spectrum of these reactions can vary widely; reactions may present as typical allergic symptoms (eg, itching, urticaria, rash, edema) after a single dose, or may manifest as breathlessness due to bronchospasm.
Avatar n tn you will get alot of differing views on "how many" hydrocodone are enough. It's tough because if you're an addict one is good, two is better, then pretty soon you're up to a lovely 25/day. If you cannot tolerate the pain without narcs you should set a limit of how many you will take daily......not more than 4,5,6. You will still have withdrawals even from these low numbers, but mixed with antiinflamatories(from your doc.) you should be able to get substantial relief.
Avatar n tn The thing is that the only medication that helps me with the chronic cough and belching is is TUSSIONEX witch is a combination of Hydrocodone and Chlorpheniram, but the problem is of course that because it's a narcotic no doctor will give that on a daily bases for the rest of my life. If somebody had these symptoms (something stuck in the throat,chronic cough and chronic throat clearing) please tell me what did you do, and if you found something that worked as good as tussionex.
Avatar n tn I recently ruptured a disk in my back and again noticed my PND went away for the 2 months I was on that Hydrocodone. Absolutely totally went away! In spite of the back pain I was in heaven! I got off the hydro when things got better in my back and the PND returned. I've been experimenting with my left over hydro pills and there is ABSOLUTELY a correlation between my PND stopping and taking hydro.
Avatar n tn the cough syrup makes me feel better since it has no anihistimenes in it .cough syrups like codi clear,tussionex,hycotuss,hycadan,vicutuss,its all a liquid form of hydrocodone,i often find my self going to emergency rooms around my area going for coughs and i seem to get it everytime.wether i am just good at it or what it is so easy to manipulate doctors into getting this drug,well that is all see ya later.
Avatar m tn I didn't go to the doctor until after the 4th week, and he proscribed Tussionex, which is a cough suppressant with hydrocodone in it. Sometime in January, the cough went away, and I stopped taking the Tussionex. The cough started again in the Fall of 2005, and I again took Tussionex for it. It seemed to last longer this time, but went away, and I stopped taking the Tussionex. The cough started again last Fall, but this time it continued.
Avatar n tn I am not experienced in being sober and giving advice, but I am experienced in dealing with withdrawals and the realization that I am an addict. I never wanted to know ANYTHING about drugs, had a some wine if at a party, I am ashamed to say I looked "down" at addicts and couldn't get it. Well, all it took was to become ill with TMJ, migranes and back problems, before long, I too kept needing pills to just "feel" normal, never-mind to get a buzz.
Avatar n tn You should ask your pharmacist. I don't know how much hydrocodone Tussionex has in it, but I wouldn't take both of them. Both medications contain hydrocodone, which you probably already know. That is a very strong narcotic and not one you want to OD on. You can take as much as 10 mg of hydrocodone at a time. That could leave yoy feeling quite out of it though if it is too much for your system. I would probably wait 6 hours from the lortab to take the tussionex. Feel better. God bless.
286124 tn?1214942128 wow!!! now thats a word i havent heard of in years, tussionex... what do you mean "back you up?
Avatar n tn No, there is no type of antibiotic in it. It has narcotic in it (hydrocodone) and the antihistamine. You can google it for more info...but the info above is what I've read about it as well.
Avatar m tn Check with his doctor to see if he could take any of a number of cough medicines to relieve his cough, such as Tussionex® (hydrocodone) and any of a number of codeine containing cough syrups.
636562 tn?1223671045 With that said, this is the information I can offer you regarding Tussionex. Chlorpheniramine maleate and hydrocodone bitartrate are used together in an oral preparation to relieve coughing and upper respiratory symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis or the common cold. Hydrocodone release from the Tussionex® oral suspension is controlled by the Pennkinetic® system. Chlorpheniramine release from Tussionex® is prolonged by use of an ion-exchange polymer system.
Avatar m tn I am almost 100% positive that hydrocodone has an antihistimine in it. which can cause breathing problems. hope this has helped you...
Avatar n tn I have been taking tussionex (hydrocodone polisterex with chlorpheniramine) Chlorpheniramine is the same antihistamine used in dimetapp. It's a liquid cough syrup i've been taking for a little over 8 yrs. now for chronic sinusites and respiratory infections. I also have horribble allergies which have never been kept under control until I was prescribed tussionex. It took over 7 years before I had any withdrawal symptoms.
Avatar n tn Yes, I have the same thing and it is not Tussionex that is the magic solution. It is simply hydrocodone. You can take it pill or liquid and it has the same effect. I have to live on it, 5mg twice a day works for me. I take breaks from it every three weeks. So it is three weeks on, one week off. It is the only thing that works and that keeps me dried up and not choking. And I have tried everything and my doctor has come to realize that it really is the only thing that works for me.
Avatar f tn Hydrocodone (dihydrocodeinone) (Vicodin®, Lortab®, Tussionex®) This action renders all products containing hydrocodone, including but not limited to hydrocodone in combination with acetaminophen or ibuprofen, Schedule II. Schedule III Deletions: Hydrocodone (dihydrocodeinone) (Vicodin®, Lortab®, Tussionex®) This action renders all products containing hydrocodone, including but not limited to hydrocodone in combination with acetaminophen or ibuprofen, Schedule II.
Avatar m tn There are a number of anti-tussives, the best of those available a narcotic named Hydrocodone. This is combined with an anti-histamine in a preparation called Tussionex. Note, however that antihistamines have a drying effect and, if anything, that might worsen your cough. You should confirm with your doctor that the cause of your cough truly is pulmonary fibrosis and not another cause that might be more responsive to therapy.
Avatar n tn and delsym cough syrup is the **** as far as cough syrup goes, it does work great so that was a great suggestion, forgot about that one! that explain why it tastes so much like tussionex, minus the nasty little addition of hydrocodone! i have still been having using dreams... if i ever get to post a question here LOL, i would ask the doc about that but it is really not that big of a deal, more of a curiosity!
Avatar f tn in less than 5 days they are taking my cervical cerclage out and i may go into labor. will the hydrocodone be in the babys system and can they take my baby if it was prescribed?
Avatar n tn The diagnosis, establishment of cause and the treatment of chronic cough can be most difficult. Tussionex® (hydrocodone bitartrate and chlorpheniramine maleate) is a potent cough-suppressant. There is no significant drug interaction between it and the Adalat® (nifedipine). Your concern about the use of a narcotic is appropriate. This is an addictive narcotic. It suppresses cough but does not address the specific cause of an individual's cough.
Avatar n tn At least once or twice a week the smallest thing, like drinking water, or soda, or even taking in a breath, will trigger a tickle in my throat which sends me into a coughing fit until my eyes water and usually end with sneezing. It's very embarrasing at a restaurant and out in public. What's causing it?
177036 tn?1192290235 So like I said, if the time comes that I don't need them anymore or some new drug pops up that is actually effective then I won't need my meds but until then.... If the meds interfered in my life or in my daily activities or work then yes I would have to get off of them but unlike most people, hydrocodone doesnt make me feel more tired or awake, neither does xanax. I went over 7 years before i experienced any w/d symptoms from hydrocodone.
