Can you take Claritin (loratadine) and hydrocodone-homatropine syrup together? I am having really bad allergies and a cough, I am asthmatic as well.

Can you take Claritin (loratadine) and hydrocodone-homatropine syrup together? I am having really bad allergies and a cough, I am asthmatic as well.

CNS depressant: The combination can be sedating. When combined, homatropine and Claritin (loratadine) can cause anticholinergic side effects. If a patient has previously used both medications in the past without any side effects, the combination should be fine in setting of asthma, "real bad allergies" and cough. ...Read more

I had this morning of 1000mg of Tylenol (acetaminophen) and another at about 7pm of 1000 and I have to take 2 tsp of hydrocodone-homatropine syrup. Can I take it now?

I had this morning of 1000mg of Tylenol (acetaminophen) and another at about 7pm of 1000 and I have to take 2 tsp of hydrocodone-homatropine syrup. Can I take it now?

The cough syrup: Hydrocodone-homatropine doesn't contain Tylenol (acetaminophen). So, yes, you can take it if you need to. However, except for the first dose, I don't recommend taking 1000 mg of Tylenol per dose There's no appreciable increased symptom relief from 1000 mg compared to 650 mg & it's too easy to go over the 4000 mg daily dose ceiling. Best wishes. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

Homatropine dilation: Dialtion with homatropine can last for several days. It is useful in iritis to prevent the iris from sticking to the natural crystalline lens in your eye.

Removing carpets, buying a dehumidifier to ensure low humidity, encasing pillows and mattresses in mite-proof cases, washing bed linen in hot water strong detergent may help.
