A member asked:

I cannot use dextromethorphan due to other medication i take. is there any prescription orover the counter cough suippressant i can take?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Benzonatate: benzonatate plus or minus guaifenesin is an alternate. I assume the conflicting meds you take are one of the SSRI or SSNRI antidepressants. The conflict is that concurrent use may cause the serotonin syndrome.
