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.

What is the difference between dimetapp dm and brotapp dm for children age 4? Are there any harmful side effects with brotapp dm in this age group?

What is the difference between dimetapp dm and brotapp dm for children age 4? Are there any harmful side effects with brotapp dm in this age group?

No important ones: For at least the last decade we have recommended parents not use these cough/cold medications in kids before school age if then. They were once a prescription med that eventually made it to OTC status. Over time we realized more kids were self medicating and ending up in the ER with toxic overdoses. The research eventually showed they don't do much, other than give parents something to do. ...Read more

Mucinex (guaifenesin) DM contains 20 mg of DM in each 4hr dose, Delsym's 12hr has 30mg. Is that too much if I take bupropion among other meds (no MAOI).

You should prob.not: take those two together. bupropion hcl oral and dextromethorphan hbr oral bupropion hcl oral will increase the level or effect of dextromethorphan hbr oral by altering drug metabolism. and high levels of buproprion cause seizures (bad). ...Read more

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

What's the max dosage for glucosamine and chondrotin? Is there any difference in therapeutic effect at higher dosages? Any other supplements for arth?

What's the max dosage for glucosamine and chondrotin? Is there any difference in therapeutic effect at higher dosages? Any other supplements for arth?

No max: Glucosamine and chondrotin sulfate are not drugs or a vitamin, as such there is no maximum. Usually it is derived from fish so if you have an allergy to seafood or sulfates you should not take it. Most studies use at least 500mg of each three times/week.

What are the long term effects of sleep deprivation? Are there any long term side effects of substituing vivarin for sleep? Over the course of the past few months, i've averaged about 3-5 hours of sleep a day while taking vivarin. I don't feel very differ

What are the long term effects of sleep deprivation? Are there any long term side effects of substituing vivarin for sleep? Over the course of the past few months, i've averaged about 3-5 hours of sleep a day while taking vivarin. I don't feel very differ

This : This is really not a good idea. People really need at least 7 hours of sleep. The body just cannot work with such high levels of stress. If that really has been your schedule, you are severely sleep deprived right now. You cannot form normal sleep cycles in such a short period of time. I can assure you that your performance and your general health are both significantly reduced after doing that for a few months. You will build dependence to vivarin, (caffeine) and you will probably have long term health problems. I would highly suggest you find another way that allows you to get more sleep. Again, really not a good idea. ...Read more
