Regular medication: If you have cold symptoms it is more important than ever to take your regularly scheduled allergy/asthma medication.

Can 4 yo get a steroid injection or po? She has had allergies and/or cold (per dr) going on 2 months now. Neither claritin or xyryec and Delsym..
Rarely indicated: Children are not just small adults. The steroid injections many adults get for sinus relief, etc. Are rarely indicated in kids. They can impair their developing immune system. Steroid nasal sprays are relatively low risk and often help. Some kids with asthma flare ups will take a 4-5 day oral burst but that is condition specific. ...Read more
I took diphenhydramine hydrochloride with guaifenesin /dextromethorphan to treat congestion and allergies would it be okay to take albuterol?
I have a really bad cough and its been the third day. I'm allergic to dextromethorphan and can't see my doctor for three days. I cant sleep. Please help!
Don't over suppress: Cough is your body trying to protect itself so it's hard to answer without an exam. Stay hydrated, try green tea with honey and maybe a little whiskey at bed time if you like. Should also gargle with antibacterial mouthwash several times a day, and may want to try Emergency Immune Boost during the day. Do you have earache or sinus issues? May want to sleep with humidifier but make sure it's clea. ...Read more

Blood test: Dextromethorphan can be measured in the blood, but one would need a suspicion of an overdose in order to obtain this test. Dextromethorphan is structurally related to the opiate receptor agonist, codeine, and symptoms can include drowsiness, dizziness, disorientation, seizures and breathing irregularities. It is important to let the physician know all medications taken, including otc preparations. ...Read more
Is a 12 hour otc cough suppressant only. If you only have a cough, this one is a good choice. It even comes in grape or orange flavors for the discriminating palate.
Don't forget to treat the cause of the cough, which is frequently post nasal drip. Use a humidifier when heat is on in house. Breathe in steamy showers through nose. Use saline nasal spray frequently to keep membranes moist! ...Read more

Dextromethorphan-: -is a safe cough suppressant with no contradiction, however if taken in sufficient amounts 2 get high, anything is dangerous. Maybe not against exercise but in general. It is abnormal behavior & a very stupid thing 2 do but @ 46, there is no use in trying to change Ur habit without direction from an AODA councilor. ...Read more

Can an adult take a double dosage of children's benylin (dextromethorphan) night time cough or more?
Drug test question: will dextromethorphan hbr show up in drug test and how long from when the last dose does it show up?? thanks!! :)
I was told give my 2yr old benylin (dextromethorphan) cuz he's 48 lbs and 3.5ft tall. It says 6 and up 10ml so I only want to give 5ml cuz he's same as 6 but still only 2?
Not the weight: That matters, it's the age, for the maturity of the CNS and the unpredictable reactions to these drugs in toddlers and patients younger than age 6. You didn't specify what formulation you wanted to use. Moreover your son needs to be checked for his weight: way above, he is tall too, but still he is obese, kindly get referred to a pediatric endocrinologist, good luck ...Read more
Constipated: At the least you will likely end up very constipated, nauseated, and dopey. If these side effects don't curb your sexual drive, the drug will. If you take a load of it, it will act like heroin. Thus too much will depends on how much. Doubling the usual dose likely will not hurt you and there is no evidence that this affects fertility per se. ...Read more
I tell patients: To expect no side effects.....However dextromethorphan can cause drowsiness. More significant side effects include anxiety, slowed breathing, hallucinations all of which require attention. Hopefully it will also suppress a cough which is usually why it is prescribed. Www.
