Cheratussin Ac Cough Syrup
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

2yr old & 6mth old given tamiflu (oseltamivir) for the flu & Cheratussin but the 6mth old seems to be n pain can I give him tylnol pain meds ontop of meds they got?
Body aches are frequent symptoms of the flu and this maybe the reason the baby is cranky. If you are giving Acetaminophen (tylenol) to control the fever, this should help. I would stop giving the Cheratussin to both children. You can try Vicks vaporub sparingly on the 2-year-old's chest. Tamiflu (oseltamivir) maybe causing the irritability as well as a possible ear infection.

Drug_list=719-8048, 1200-719. Then look for generic equivalents or read ingredient labels. Mucinex (guaifenesin) is a brand of Guaifenesin while Guaifenesin ac is Guaifenesin plus codeine. So yes, your combo is already sold as such. Just don't take too much together. ...Read more
