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

My dr recommended cough syrup with guaifenesin to better CM for helping conceive. Will it still work with phenylephrine HCL 10mg in it ? No dm though.

What?: I might be misunderstanding your question, but are you under the assumption that guaifenesin will help you to conceive a child? Cough syrup, of any kind, will not enhance you chances of becoming pregnant...It will however help your cough... If I'm misunderstanding please repost your question. ...Read more

Benzonatate and Nyquil cough combined isn't working. Coughed until I vomited last night. Can I mix the Rx with Robitussin DM (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan)? I don't know what to do?

Benzonatate and Nyquil cough combined isn't working. Coughed until I vomited last night. Can I mix the Rx with Robitussin DM (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan)? I don't know what to do?

M.D. follow up: I would suggest not mixing the medications. If you have a severe cough, a work up to include a screening for Pertussis and Asthma is suggested. A nasal saline rinse helps to reduce post nasal drip and cough. A virtual appt online: healthtap.com/DosanjhMD Code: NCYHPZ ...Read more

Bronchitis? Been coughing very frequently for the past 2 weeks. Nose is not stuffy but cough has mucus. Robitussin DM (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan) makes it better. Why the cough?

Bronchitis? Been coughing very frequently for the past 2 weeks. Nose is not stuffy but cough has mucus. Robitussin DM (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan) makes it better. Why the cough?

Acute bronchitis?: If you're not short of breath, it would be unlikely (but possible) that it's bronchitis. This could be allergies, or pharyngitis, or sinusitis. The cough would come from irritation of inflammation of the pharynx. But you should be evaluated by a local doctor to determine which is truly going on and receive the appropriate treatment. ...Read more

Can i take my Brom-pse-dm Cough syrup with ibuprofen for headach and my anxiety medication all at the same time?

Can i take my Brom-pse-dm Cough syrup with ibuprofen for headach and my anxiety medication all at the same time?

Depends...: Do you mean brom-fed dm? And what anxiety med are you taking? The brom-fed cough syrup can make you drowsy as can some anxiety meds. So, depending on which anxiety med you are taking, you do need to be careful about over-sedation by taking both of these meds at the same time. It would be ok to take the ibuprofen at the same time. Let us know exactly which meds you are taking if this is not helpful ...Read more

Can I take cough syrup with codeine and mucinex (guaifenesin) dm simultaneously? I have bronchitis and in a lot of pain from coughing. If not, any suggestions?

Can I take cough syrup with codeine and mucinex (guaifenesin) dm simultaneously? I have bronchitis and in a lot of pain from coughing. If not, any suggestions?

Too much Rx: I wouldn't mix the codeine containing cough medicine with Mucinex (guaifenesin) DM which contains dextromethorphan. The dextromethorphan is basically an analog of a narcotic and you would be getting an excessive dose of narcotic which could cause excessive sedation, respiratory supression, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and other adverse effects. ...Read more

My daughter's pediatrician prescribed her Bromfed (brompheniramine) dm cough syrup as needed for cough and she is only 2 yrs old. Is this cough syrup bad for her?

Not recommended: The fda, as well as the aap do not recommend cough/cold products for young children, as they have not been shown to be effective, and may have side effects. I'd suggest vaporizer, fluids, suction nose with saline, and if over 1 yr, a tsp of honey. Don't use honey if less than 1yr, as there is a risk of botulism. ...Read more
