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

Post nasal drip is causing me to gag and vomit will Robitussin CF help also got a cough from the drip?

Yes & no: 2 ingredients in Robitussin CF (cough suppressant dextromethorfan, expectorant guaifenesin) may help but the 3rd (decongestant pseudoephedrine) may keep the nose & sinuses running since it opens sinus passages. May want to use Robitussin-DM or Mucinex dm which don't have the decongestant. Antihistamine like zyrtec (cetirizine) will help stop runny nose. Possible drowsiness with these meds. ...Read more

Can i take robitussin cf and benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

No interaction: Assuming you have symptoms for which guaifenesin, dextromethorphan, phenylephrine, and diphenhydramine (Benadryl) are indicated...there should be no interaction between these medications. Always read OTC medicine labels and ask the pharmacist whether your symptoms match the active ingredients! Sometimes less is more, so be careful with polypharmacy. Thank you for trusting HealthTap!
