CHERATUSSIN AC SYRUP

Discussion thread for information on Cheratussin AC syrup ## 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 high...

Cheratussin and alcohol

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? ## I took Cheratussin 4 hours before I drank a shot and a half of alcohol. Will it be ok for me to go to sleep? I drank the alcohol 2 hours ago.

When one doctor changes another doctor's Rx

What is the difference between Cheratussin AC 10 mg-100MG/5 ML oral liquid and Codeine 10 MG-Guaifenesin mg/5 ml oral mac? I prefer and requested Cheratussin but the Kaiser Pharmacy said they were getting the Codeine guaifenesin now and that they were the same thing? Why did they change when I got cheratussin from them to begin with?

ok to take 2 year expired cheratussin ac

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 ...

Escitalopram and Cheratussin AC

I have a horrible cough and found some Cheratussin AC cough syrup in the cupboard... I took two tsps and then remembered that I am now on Escitalopram... Will I have any problems combining the two? ## According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (umm.edu / drug interaction tool), there are no interactions listed between Cheratussin AC and Escitalopram. This does not necessarily mean that no interactions exist, however, I have no reason to believe that the combination is unsafe based on my own investigation. Nevertheless, it's always a good idea to consult your prescribing doctor with any doubts or concerns before moving forward. Hope this helps!

cheratussin ac syrup qua overdose

What happens if you drink alot of this stuff? ## Well, as with the abuse of any medication, be it prescription or over the counter, you run the risk of getting sick, causing organ damage or possibly killing yourself. Cheratussin AC contains Codeine and Guaifensin, the Codeine is a narcotic, so this makes it even more dangerous as you can overdose on these fairly quickly. You can read more here: Do you have any other questions? ## I accidently given my child 2/3 mg of Cheratussin AC for a cough. The prescribed dosage is 1/3mg. He's fine and playing, is there's anything I need to worry about or if anything he might just get sleepy? ## I have a stomach ache that feels like poison...intense [pain beyond measure ## it's ok, i just drank it, it's good.

Cheratussin AC: Took 15 ml by accident

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. ## I have cheratussin ac syrup and when I leave it for a while it gets little white stuff in it. I keep it in the frigidare so probably aint suppose too could this be the problem because I thought something might be wrong with it. ## @Faye, I've never had that happen to a bottle of cough syrup before, with the white stuff accumulating and what not. Then again, I never put my Cheratussin AC in the fridge...

Cheratussin AC and Clonazepam

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. ## You can take both just fine. Its an opiate and a benzo, take it slow and get nice & faded. Source: im prescribed clonazapem and have had some of my cherratussin syrup

expired Cheratussin AC

Is it safe to take Cheratussin AC that has been in the fridge but expired Dec 2013? ## Hello, Angvil! How are you? No, liquid medications tend to degrade much faster than others forms, plus they may actually turn and could make you ill, if you take it. It would be best to dispose of it and see your doctor for a new prescription, if you need to take it. Cheratussin AC is classified by the FDA a narcotic cough suppressant. It carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, constipation and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Expired Cheratussin AC; expired March 2013. Now it's March 2017. Aside from potency, should I be concerned about taking it?

Cheratussin AC and Xanax

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...
