Tessalon Perles Expectorant
Motrin ; Tessalon: Hello, it is ok to take these two medications together.
Maybe: Tessalon pearls sometimes work very well. More importantly I would see your doctor to find out why you are coughing chronically. There is likely better medicines to take which may resolve your chronic cough. See your doctor.
No: No you should never smokeGet a more detailed answer ›
I was perscribed tessalon perles (benzonatate) for my cough but its not working what's the next meds I should check out?
Can you take guiatuss AC and tessalon perles (benzonatate) together? I received tessalon for day and guiatuss AC for night but I am hacking so bad during day.
Contact Doctor: Neither of those medications treat the underlying cause of your cough. If you are not getting better then you must contact your doctor to see what to do next.
Drugs. Com: Did not show any significant drug interactions between tessalon perles & regular sudafed. But there are many types of sudafed.
Probably OK: These are to different class of medications and should not interact. More importantly is why one takes these meds and one's physician, who is familiar with diagnosis, can provide better guidance.
Yes, but. . .: It's always best to ask your prescribing doc & dispensing pharmacist what to take and what to avoid. They can only do that if you tell them everything you take including OTC. More importantly, you need to be very specific & detailed. For instance, there are many versions of Delsym, (dextromethorphan) each w/various medication recipes. Check out http://www. Drugs.

Tessalon perles (benzonatate) given for cough. Scared of side effects--says hallucinations possible?! is this a generally safe medication?
Yes: It is usually a very safe medication.See 1 more doctor answer
Bronchitis- how can I stop gagging when I cough? I take shallow breaths to avoid coughing. Taking tessalon perles (benzonatate) but still have coughing fits.
4 hours: Tessalon usually starts working within 20 minutes of taking it with a duration of action of 3 - 8 hours. I would not take it more frequently than every 4 hours. Overdose is not generally a problem but the typical maximum dose is 600 - 800 mg per day.
Tessalon pearl: Nausea and vomiting is listed as a side effect but it is not too common.
I have pneumonia and I'm taking levaquin (levofloxacin) and tessalon perles plus cough syrup------is all that okay?
Perhaps: I find that cough medicines like tessalon perles and non-codeine containing cough meds are not terribly effective for the cough from pneumonia. They are more effective for post nasal drip or tracheitis coughs. If the pneumonia is bacterial, Levaquin (levofloxacin) is often very effective. If the pneumonia is viral-and many pneumonias are-the antibiotic will make no difference.
