Dr. James G. Marx answered:

Can i take promethazine codeine syrup with benadryl?

Why?

Promethazine
Promethazine and Benadryl are both antihistamines. The combination of Prometh. with Codeine should be used the treatment of uncontrolled coughing. Unfortunately, the purple syrup is frequently abused in a number of unusual ways. To add Benadryl to the combination syrup doesn't make much sense in most circumstances and could lead to at least drowsiness or worse.

A way to remove Tylenol from apap/codeine cough syrup?

Tylenol: Toxic?

Tylenol
Unfortunately there is no way to remove the Tylenol or Acetominophen from such a product. One has to get another product. Your pharmacist can assist you with this and making sure your physician understands why a new product is being requested. Good for you for learning that Tylenol can be dangerous.

Should hydromet cough syrup make me throw up if codeine pills do?

Hydrocodone

Cough
Hydromet syrup is a narcotic pain medicine with hydrocodone. It is generally considered stronger than codeine. Because they are different medications, it is hard to say what side effects you will have. I have seen patients who have nausea and emesis with codeine and not with hydrocodone. I have also seen nausea and emesis with hydrocodone and not with codeine. Only way to know is to try it.
