COUGH MEDICINE ## The antihistamine in Tussi Caps can be purchased OTC at Walgreens. 8 or 10 mg of Codeine can be gotten in Robotussin with Codeine, in some stores also over the counter! No reason to be overpricing this medication! Just a way to gouge consumers!

How Long Should tussicaps stay in your system

how long does tussicaps stay in your system? ## Hi Leelee, Tussicaps contain the active ingredients: Hydrocodone + Chlorpheniramine The terminal elimination half-life of Chlorphenamine is reportedly around 20 hours; while for Hydrocodone the average half-life is about 4 hours. Half-life here means that, say, 20 hours after ingesting Tussicaps, half of the active amount will be gone. This doesn't mean that 20 hours later, though, the other half will be gone. At that point half of the remainder will be gone, then another half after the same time interval, and so on, until the drug is eliminated from the body. I've heard that it can take about 5 half-lives for a drug to be completely out of your system. So depending on the dose taken, I'd imagine that it could be a couple weeks...
