Tussionex Overview

Chlorphenamine (also known as chlorpheniramine, CP, or CPM) is a first-generation antihistamine used in the prevention of the symptoms of allergic conditions such as rhinitis and urticaria. Its sedative effects are relatively weak compared to other first-generation antihistamines. Chlorphenamine is one of the most commonly used antihistamines in small-animal veterinary practice. Although not generally approved as an antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication, chlorphenamine appears to have the...

Heavy cough ## I was prescribed Tussionex syrup for an acute bronchial infection, along with an antibiotic and an inhalant.

Have others reported this? ## how do you treat Tracheitis? ## I TOOK IT FOR 3 MONTHS WHEN I HAD WHOOPING COUGH LAST YEAR. I AM 70 YRS OLD. IT IS THE BEST THING TO STOP A COUGH SO I COULD GET SOME SLEEP. I WENT TO THE ER at the hospital. The ER doctor said it was the best cough medicine there is. I finally could sleep. My own doctor did not want to prescribe it as it has narcotic or something but it is the only thing that helps.It is available and Tussionex works. ## Lu (# 1) - That has happened...

tussionex ext rel sus medeva qty 120

Does this medicine have real codeine or synthetic? I am allergic to the real stuff but I can take meds like vicodin & darvocet. ## Tussionex contains Chlorpheniramine and Hydrocodone, the same narcotic as that in Vicodin, so no, it doesn't contain regular Codeine. Side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. You can read more on this medication here: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## How long does tussinex extended release show in urine ## Diana, Since it is a sustained release formulation the standard 72-96 hours could be an additional 36-48 hours. These are only hypothetical. Folks have cleared in as little as 60 hours while others showed positive after 8 days so it's all relative. There are far too many metabolic variables so even...

Tussionex Hydrocodone NJ Prescription Laws GERD

As a long time sufferer of GERD with Barrett’s Esophagus, I have been taking Tussionex since 2008 as the medicine of last resort to control severe bouts of heartburn based on a study reported in the World Gastroenterology Journal (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PMC2689423). My gastroenterologist has provided me with a prescription for the medication for some time; however, after the recent passage of a new law in New Jersey to help control the abuse of opioid prescriptions for the treatment of pain he has become reluctant to continue the providing me with a prescription for Tussionex. I would like to find out if the primary ingredient of Tussionex (hydrocodone) is considered a Schedule II drug under the definition provided in the New Jersey Controlled Substances Law (njconsumeraffairs.gov/Statu...

What happened to "Tussi Gold"? Is it the same as Tussionex?

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,...

Tussionex - Availability?

Several pharmacies would not fill the prescription, and they said it is no longer an approved cough medicine... This cough medicine worked...What is comparable that is available? ## No, Tussionex was one of the ones that did receive FDA approval. There are also several others that contain the same active ingredients that are approved, such as Hycodan, Mycodone, and Tussigon. Perhaps you should ask your doctor about prescribing one of them. They do warn that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Has anyone else had trouble obtaining this one? ## Thank you...yes, I understand the addictive properties, but a little 4 oz bottle once or twice a year (that really stops the cough so ...

was given tussionex generic after paying for name brand

I have cough variant asthma and must take tussionex. I was happy about the generic until I tried it. The suspension is not right. A lot of it winds up dried in useless chunks on the side of the bottle. Also, of secondary concern, it tastes and smells bad. I took my prescription to be filled and they only have half. When I picked up the second half, I was greeted by the bad smell when I opened it (at home, days later). I think this second half is the generic mixed with some reall tussionex. It's scaling on the side of the bottle now. So, this tells me it's the generic. The generic does not take care of the coughing. But, I paid extra to get namebrand. It seems to me, if that is what I bought that is what I would get. What can I do? ## The only thing you can really do this point w...
