I have dosed pseudoephedrine hci, guaifenesin, and dextromethorphan hbr. I also took 2 10/650 vicodin. Is this safe i took about 3.5 fluid ounces of Robitussin cf, which is what contained all of the ingredients listed. Is this combination potentially harm
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Mucinex (guaifenesin) DM contains 20 mg of DM in each 4hr dose, Delsym's 12hr has 30mg. Is that too much if I take bupropion among other meds (no MAOI).
Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm vs. Robitussin dm? I've got a very bad, "dry" cough and lots of "wheezing" the Robitussin has done nothing! should I try the mucinex (guaifenesin)?
Cough: Robitussin dm (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan) and Mucinex dm have same chemicals- dextromethorphan and guaifenesin. Dextromethorphan is cough suppressant and Guaifenesin is cough expectorant. You just will be switching the brand. Wheezing is large airway obstruction problem.

Suggestions: Sudafed and afrin are safe decongestants, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and nasal steroids ok for allergy symptoms. Honey is a good cough suppressant.

What are the chances of developing side effects from Mucinex (guaifenesin) fast max severe congestion and cough?
Side effects: There are side effects with almost every medication you take-over the counter and prescription. Difficult to predict who will experience them and to what extent.

Sometimes it's a matter of do the side effects make you feel worse than the medication makes you feel better. Good luck! ...Read more
