bioflu robitussin dm

Can bioflu which contains phenylephrine hcl, chlorphenamine maleate and paracetamol be taken together with robitussin dm which contains dextromethorphan hbr and guaifenesin? Please reply. Thank you so much for your help. ## HI, though they have different ingredients, you would essentially still be doubling up on the same types of medications, so no you most likely shouldn't take them both, unless your doctor instructs you to do so. Getting too much could cause some problems, such as worsening of the side effects. Additionally, since the Phenylephrine can act like a stimulant, adding it with the Dextromethorphan and the Guaifenesin that cause the opposite effect could be very detrimental. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Can i take robitussin softgel and bioflu at the sa...

sulfa drug in robitussin

after taking Robitussin, my wife had a reaction with systemic urticaria. Her only known allergy or sensitivity is to sulfa medications. I can't find any sulfa in Robitussin. Any ideas ## Hello, Vance! How is your wife doing? There's a chance that she's allergic to an ingredient in the Robitussin. If you were to research this in the articles provided by the NIH, you would see that they warn about it being a possibility. When someone is allergic to one medication, or class of medications, it is common to find more that they also cause them to suffer allergic reactions. Such reactions tend to get worse, with repeated exposure, so she needs to stop taking it and have it checked out by her doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I know this was written a while ago but ...

Robitussin and bromfed

Can you take robitussin and bromfed together? My 9 yr old has a cough that won't stop.....even after taking bromfed. ## How is your soon doing? Has there been any change?
