What Happened To "tussi Gold"? Is It The Same As Tussionex?

Scooby Do Says:

I am prone to severe bronchitis from time to time. But it's been quite awhile. However, I took my 67 yr. old wife in to the doc to check out her awful coughing for the last several days. She has it so bad that her rib cage and muscles make her scream in pain. I asked about Tussi Gold for her, but was told they had no idea what that was! It's been 10 years since I was last proscribed Tussi Gold - what has happened?

Hello, Scooby Do! How is your wife doing?

I'm sorry, but I'm not familiar with anything under that name, either.

Were you possibly thinking of Tussigon?

It is listed by the FDA as containing Homatropine and Hydrocodone. The FDA classifies this medications as a narcotic cough suppressant, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

I believe what you had was Tussionex with the word gold listed underneath (or next to it) to signify what color of the medication. I have a bottle of Tussionex "gold" and that is what mine meant. :-)
