Doff That Cough!: Something's going on here. First, just don't take any more of that stuff. There are other ways to beat a cough. I assume you're taking this for a cough, right?? Try a steamy shower and/or steam from a tea pot. Try a teaspoon of honey. Try one or two capsules of Benadryl (diphenhydramine). But if nothing works go see a doctor. They could try therapy you couldn't do at home, like a nebulizer or other medications, etc ...Read more

A doctor prescribed my 2 year old a half tsp of rondec dm syrup every 4 to 6 hours as needed is this a safe dose?

Cough medicine: Cough/cold medications do not help relieve the symptoms they are meant to take care of. In short, they are useless for children below 6 years old. In addition, the child is exposed to bad side-effects from them like drowsiness, irritability, hyperactivity. Best medicine is lots of fluids, saline for the nose and possibly a cool mist humidifier in his room. Try honey for the cough. ...Read more

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

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

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

Thought to be...: The causes of DM2 are unclear, but thought to be a mixture of genetics, excess weight, and perhaps certain foods and additives.

Keep your weight within normal limits, exercise, and avoid high carbohydrate foods to reduce risk. ...Read more
