Hi I took robitussin dm (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan) about 3 hours ago and it hasn't helped, is it to soon to take some NyQuil?

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.

I got pneumonia and doctor prescribed me robitussin ac but not working much. Is it ok if I switched to Robitussin Dm (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan). What is the difference in dm n a?

DM has: dextromethorphan which is a cough suppressant. AC just means there is codeine included, a narcotic suppressant. Pneumonia needs to be treated with antibiotics and expectorant, along with anti-inflammatory medicines. You can take the DM but it is unlikely to be more effective than with codeine. You can try a formulation with Hydrocodone like Tussionex or TussiCaps. ...Read more
