What do you suggest if my moms about to pick it up now. it's guaifenesin pseudoephedrine and codeine. will it make me feel different?

Possibly: Guaifenesin doesn't really cause emotional, mental or physical changes in most people other than loosening congestion so you can cough it out more easily.Pseudoephedrine hypes some folks up & decreases appetite, codeine can cause sedation & drowsiness.In combination, they usually balance out, but you may be more sensitive to one of the ingredients than another. ...Read more

Can i take following ingredients together? Ibuprofen 400mg, guaifenesin 1200mg and pseudoephedrine 60mg. Thanks

You can: But you have to know the maximum dose you can take a day of each of these medicines and their side effect. Ibuprofen for pain has to be taken with food. Guaifenesin to loosen secretions, and pseudo Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) for decongestant with side effect of rapid heart rate, anxiety and increase BP temporarily. Also consider all the precautions for pregnancy and ulcer, etc.. They don't have interactions. ...Read more

What does mixing norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and pseudoephedrine do?

What does mixing norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and pseudoephedrine do?

A bit of a buzz: Pseudoephrine will cause the release of catacholamines (adrenaline like substances) which will make you a bit hyper. The Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is sedating, so this will be countered. Mixing drugs like this can result in unexpected results and so is not recommended. ...Read more

Would pseudoephedrine as found in Mucinex (guaifenesin) D affect the results of a free and total testosterone test?

Would pseudoephedrine as found in Mucinex (guaifenesin) D affect the results of a free and total testosterone test?

Probably not, but : Pseudoephedrine PE , is very common in nasal and cold meds. It is a stimulant. It probably won't change the blood level of T. But it has many side effects if taken in excessive doses. Google it and read some comments . Just like many good meds etc. Too much is not good ...Read more

I have dosed pseudoephedrine hci, guaifenesin, and dextromethorphan hbr. I also took 2 10/650 vicodin. Is this safe i took about 3.5 fluid ounces of Robitussin cf, which is what contained all of the ingredients listed. Is this combination potentially harm

No: 3.5 ounces of Robitussin (guaifenesin) is an excessive dose in and of itself (usual dose is 15-30 ml, which is 1/2-1 oz). Combining this with 2 vicodin increases the chance of toxic effects. Follow instructions on otc medications if you want to use them safely, and tell the doctor prescribing the vicodin about your use of other medications with it. ...Read more

Help! need to know if there's a way to extract the guaifenesin out of hydrocodone and gauifenesin tablets?

Help! need to know if there's a way to extract the guaifenesin out of hydrocodone and gauifenesin tablets?

Yes you need help: But not of a technical nature. It is not the job of an ethical physician to help anybody find ways to hurt themselves. If you have an opioid dependency, and it sure sounds to me like you might, get help for that. There are many competent treatment programs, and am sure that galveston has it's share of them. Narcotics anonymous is widely available, and www.Asam.Org and www.Aaap.Org can help. ...Read more

Daughter taking hydrocodone-chlorphen er 5ml. can she take mucinex (guaifenesin) dm also.the hydrocodone-chlorphen is not working. or can she take just mucinex (guaifenesin) ?

Hydrocodone-chlorphe: If hydrocodone-chlorpheniramine is not working for her cough and cold symptoms, then don't have her take anymore of it. It is fine for her to take Mucinex (guaifenesin) DM q 12 hours. To dispose of hydrocodone based liquids- mix it with old coffee grounds or if you have a cat, mix it with cat litter and throw in the trash. Police dpts won't accept & incinerate liquids-just pills. ...Read more
