I have a bad cold/cough with sinus pressure and a deep cough in my chest. Is it safe to take Advil (ibuprofen) cold and sinus and Robitussin DM at the same time?
2 Cough supressants: You are intending to take Robitussin DM, a medicine that has a cough suppressant and expectorant, with benzonatate, tessalon, which is also a cough suppressant. Instead, take the robitussin DM because it has the expectorant with it as well. Studies show that the combination of benzonatate and guaifenesin is excellent as well but should not be stacked with dextromethorphan. Good luck. ...Read more

What is the proper dose of Robitussin DM (marked by the same manufacturer under the name "Tukol D" in Mexico) for a 90lb child?
YES, altho both: acyclovir and dextromethorphan (the DM part of "Robitussin DM Max) can cause dizziness. Taking them together might increase the chance of that happening.

Hi I took robitussin dm (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan) about 3 hours ago and it hasn't helped, is it to soon to take some NyQuil?
Maybe: Just take a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) it'll knock you out. If you are coughing and miserable make an appointment with your doctor and get the codeine cough syrup and get 10 hours of sleep. It will help. Sleep works wonders and the codeine cough syrup is godsent for coughs keeping you up at night until you recover from your cold. ...Read more

I am 33 weeks pregnant. Is it safe to take Robitussin-DM max? I ave a runny nose and cough/congestion. When I cough the right side of my torso hurts.
No: Robitussin dm (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan) contains alcohol, which while it is not in a large amount, can be significant if you are taking even recommended doses every 4 hours or so. There is no amount of alcohol considered safe in pregnancy, so I would ask your pharmacist for an alcohol-free cough medication safe in pregnancy. The other stuff in it are dextromethorphan and antihistamines. Your OB is your first/best advisor. ...Read more
Why does my stomach ache so bad (maybe lasts for 3 mins) after I take Robitussin DM (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan)? I took meal before taking this medicine.
Not that I know of: There is a reason people say something tastes like cough medicine.....The ingredients and many have an alcohol base that just makes them taste yucky. I would look for it as a pill or look to other possibilities. Honey and lemon are known to be excellent for coughs. Warm drinks help him phlegm. Elderberry is excellent for coughs. It contains sambucous and sambucous is good for mucous. ...Read more
