Cheratussin and alcohol
1 Reply RSS
I was out drinking several glasses of wine and came home and took a teaspoon of cheratussin ac. Is there any risk of interaction? ## Actually yes, there might be, since this medication contains Codeine and should not be combined with alcohol, since both of them cause depression of the central nervous system, according to the FDA. Combining them could result in lowered heart rate, lowered blood pressure, severe drowsiness, severe dizziness, and could be fatal, if too much of each is combined. Did you experience any adverse effects?

Cheratussin AC and Xanax
1 Reply RSS
I'm getting ready to fly and take Xanax prior to my flight. I don't want to have a coughing fit on the plane. Will taking Cheratussin AC along with the Xanax be a problem? ## Hi Karen, If you have a moment, I'd encourage you to check out the University of Maryland Medical Center (umm.edu / drug interaction tool) for good measure, where you can plug in the name of each drug you are taking and it will search its database for possible contraindications. However based on my own investigation, there does appear to be a high potential for interaction between Cheratussin AC and Alprazolam, whereas it's generally not recommended that you take the two together due to a risk of increased respiratory depression. That said, it would probably be best to contact your prescribing docto...

Cheratussin AC: Took 15 ml by accident
1 Reply RSS
Took 15 ml by accident - Am I ok? I want to make sure I didn't overdose. I took it before bed time and just want to make sure I'm ok before going to sleep? ## You're fine. My dr has said to just take a gulp from the bottle for severe coughs which is roughly equal to 20-30ml, aside from getting a little sleepy and completely knocking out my cough there were no ill effects.

Cheratussin AC and Clonazepam
2 Replies RSS
Has anybody taken Cheratussin AC and Clonazepam who can tell me if the two medications worked together without interaction? Thanks. ## No, they do not, you may experience more side effects than usual, according to FDA interaction reports, which may include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, and sedation. Are you on any other medications? What are the prescribed dosages? ## I take Atenolol 50mg, a diuretic 25mg and an inhaler. I'm also a smoker.

ok to take 2 year expired cheratussin ac
5 Replies RSS
Found my old bottle but expired July 2012.. is it OK to take it? ## Liquids have a much shorter shelf life, because they tend to degrade faster than other forms of medications and they can also turn rancid, which could make you ill. Thus, it would be best to just dispose of it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## it is fine sorry i didn't see this before. I have saved mined up to 4 yrs. & it worked.... I work for a chemist & he told me aspirin integrity stays intact 30 yrs. However this is NOT the formula for all drugs, but from personal exp. my cough med, stayed intact fine. Ever notice on all drugs now-a-days says expires in one year. what a miracle that everything goes bad in 12 months at the same time. ## We have the same thing, 2 year old Ceratussin AC and hubby ...

## perscribed for cough ## I am currently taking Chertusiin AC syrup for extreme coughing due to a bad case of bronchitis. I have not had a good nights sleep for the past 3 nights since the coughing worsens at night. There are no other cough medications that seems to work. This is helping. ## I was prescribed this for allergies and persistent dry cough. Dosage = 1 teaspoon (5ml), bur it does not work at this dosage, so I take 2. Any one else have this experience? ## Cyndi, yes. I was prescribed this for sever cough/cold. Was told to take 1-2 teaspoons every 4 hours but I have had to take 4 teaspoons every 4 hours to start to get relief. I'm going to call the doctor for a stronger dose or something else. It works, just in higher doses for me. ## I have severe allergies,my head is com...

cheratussin ac consistency
2 Replies RSS
I got my syrup from cvs and it is not thick at all. It's very runny. Is that the correct consistency? Didn't stop cough nor did i get any sleep like my doctor stated. Called pharmacy to make sure i got correct medicine and the rude pharmacist said yes. ## Hi Jane, Sorry to hear about the Cheratussin AC not working as well as it should. Unfortunately any medication can be a hit or miss in that regard. However, as far as Cheratussin's consistency is concerned I believe it should have a thicker liquid viscosity than say fruit juice for example, and not necessarily as thick as maple syrup either... It's honestly been a while since I've taken Cheratussin - but now that you mention how runny yours was, I do recall my last experience with it also being more runny than what ...

I have diabetes type 2 and am on metformin, metoprolol, potassium atorvastatin - can I take this cough medicine? ## I suggest you check with the prescribing doctor, or your pharmacist to make sure they are aware you are a diabetic. Technically, your history should be in both the drug store's & your doctor's computer system & they should alert you if there is a problem. Always err on the side of caution. I am a Type II Diabetic. My doctor prescribes this cough syrup for me each time I have bronchitis/pneumonia. Taken as directed (1-2 tsps every 6 hours ) I personally have never experienced a negative reaction. I offer this info. as an example NOT as confirmation the cough syrup is safe for you. For your own safety & good health, please call your medical prescriber or ...
