Use alternate medications which do not have anticholinergic side effects and you can discuss with your primary physician about these medications. Iron supplements, magnesium 2 mg a day and stretching exercises prior to sleep helped alleviate symptoms of restless leg syndrome

I have bronchitis if I take promethazine-codeine syrup it will help?

I have bronchitis if I take promethazine-codeine syrup it will help?

Maybe (not). . .: Promethazine-codeine syrup is prescribed to cut down on cough. However, it won't affect duration of infection. Nor make it easier to breathe if you're short of breath or wheezing. Most bronchitis is caused by viruses which won't respond to antibiotics. In other words, taking antibiotics won't make you better any faster than if you didn't take them. Go see your family doc to be sure.

Doff That Cough!: Something's going on here. First, just don't take any more of that stuff. There are other ways to beat a cough. I assume you're taking this for a cough, right?? Try a steamy shower and/or steam from a tea pot. Try a teaspoon of honey. Try one or two capsules of Benadryl (diphenhydramine). But if nothing works go see a doctor. They could try therapy you couldn't do at home, like a nebulizer or other medications, etc

What is stronger? Hydrocodone syrup or promethazine codeine syrup? In otherwords, which is more addicting or which one has a stronger sedative effect?

What is stronger? Hydrocodone syrup or promethazine codeine syrup? In otherwords, which is more addicting or which one has a stronger sedative effect?

YES: Hydrocodone is a narcotic and should never be taken without a prescription. As a general rule, when experiencing pain always try a non-narcotic pain medication first, such as advil, aleve, tylenol, (acetaminophen) etc, before taking a narcotic, even when the narcotic has been prescribed by your doctor. Pain rarely kills, but narcotics can. Especially when combined with alcohol or other sedatives.
