Will codeine cough medicine that my Dr. prescribed me for my cold show up on a ETG UA? If so how hi will the alcohol levels be?

Depends

Alcohol
not all cough medications contain alcohol; there are some that specifically do not, and if you are being tested with EtG or EtS testing, you should use non-alcohol containing cough medicines. There is no way to know how high the EtG level might be without knowing how much cough medicine you had and how much time between taking it and the test. Many consider EtG too sensitive for legal purposes.

Dr. Sue Ferranti answered:

I have had bronchitis for 2 weeks. Am on an inhaler, cough medicine w codeine, musinex. Chst X-R was negative. What else can I do to get rid of cough?

Possibilities....

Cough
Sometimes, after an episode of acute bronchitis, the cough can persist due to bronchospasm. To treat this, a bronchodilator inhaler as well as a steroid inhaler may be needed. Other possible causes of your cough include GERD or post-nasal drip, both of which have different treatments so if the cough is not resolving, see your doctor for further evaluation/treatment.

Dr. Joy M. Jackson answered:

My daughter took 2 tablespoons instead of 2 teaspoons of cough medicine with codeine. should i be concerned? she is 16 she weighs 140 pounds, She is experiencing stomach cramps

Your

Your daughter did not take much more than the recommended dose, therefore there is likely no cause for real concern. She is however experiencing stomach cramps, which is one of the gastointestinal side effects that can occur with medications containing codeine. In a stiuation like this I would call your daughter's doctor if the stomach pain worsens, or if vomiting develops. More important dangerous side effects of codeine you should watch out for are signs of an severe allergy (hives, intense itching, difficulty breathing), chest pain, fainting, heart palpitations, severe headache, or noticeable mood or mental changes. If any of these things occur she needs to be seen right away at her doctor's office or emergency room.

Dr. Aj Rastogi answered:

Is it actually true that cough syrup with codeine will help my back pain?

It might....

Cough
But you are ingesting a lot of other compounds that you don't need to combat back pain. Would discuss with a pain specialist to ensure that you take more "pure" medications that help reduce your pain without other additives such cough suppressants. He/she may also discuss other techniques/options that lessen reliance on medications.

She went to the emergency room yesterday they said I have bronchitis in a prescribed me an inhaler and cough syrup with codeine should havantibiotics?

Family Medicine

Bronchitis
Not sure why you would use the most expensive place to get health care for a common winter cold or bronchitis. Family Clinics are much easier to handle and it is always best to get this primary care from your family doctor. It is the winter still, despite the date, and viral illnesses are still in full swing.

In normal dossage, the only remote side-effect would be constipation, maybe itching although rare. With overdose or with blunts or cigs dipped and smoked, hallucinogenic.

A way to remove Tylenol from apap/codeine cough syrup?

Tylenol: Toxic?

Tylenol
Unfortunately there is no way to remove the Tylenol or Acetominophen from such a product. One has to get another product. Your pharmacist can assist you with this and making sure your physician understands why a new product is being requested. Good for you for learning that Tylenol can be dangerous.
