I am trying to locate the mfg. of Tussionex ext,rel,susp. When I went to get my prescription filled the cost was $147.00. I had to tell them to put it back of the shelf. I am on disability, At some point I need to have heart transplant. Medicare will not pay anything on this drug. Any help that you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for taking the time to read this note.

Hi Sue,

The manufacturer of Tussionex is UCB Pharmaceuticals ... they have a web site dedicted to this product at and they list U.S. phone numbers on their USA contact page.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions or information to add...

I agree with Sue, above. The price for Tussionex is prohibitive and I have found that it is the only cough syrup that works for me and allows me to sleep all night when I have a cold. With our old pharmacy insurance, the cost of 180 - 240 ml was $50.00, which was bad enough. Now with the new insurance the cost is $176.00 for the same amount. Basically the new insurance does not include this on their formulary. Thank you for your attention to this and will await a reply.

Try Walmart. I filled my prescription for generic Tussionex and paid $4.00. It worked wonders and I was able to get a good nights sleep.

tussionex is Always yellow. the red stuff is a different form of vicodin ingredient cough syrup and cheaper. It also doesn't have the extended release attribute so i don't have any Idea why it isn't working as well. The real Tussionex the yellow stuff is THE BEST and STRONGEST narcotic pain syrup on the market. It also lasts for 12 hours due to the extended release and the others only last about 4. you may just need to take a bit more because instead of hitting you all at once it releases over time but you still get the ten MG of hydrocodone at once but lasting for 12 hours instead of four that is why it is so expensive. hope this helps,

Exactly correct! But, it was so expensive at my pharmacy I couldn't pick it up. Maybe, I'll try WalMart as someone said.

I went to Walmart for my Tussinex ext-rel (but generic brand) and it cost me $80.00 My insurance only paid $20.00 of that....So I don't know why it only cost someone on here $4.00....It is the only thing that helps my cough though, other than Percoset.
