What decongestant won't keep me up at night? (not sudafed or mucinex)?
Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride (Sudafed) keeps me up Phenylephrine hydrocloride (Sudafed PE) and Guaifenesin (Mucinex) don't work - and I've had prescription strength. Anything else I can try?
Asked by Jeremy Cashing 6 months ago.
It is really hard to find a decongestant that won't keep you awake, which is why I take them only in the daytime; even prescription decongestants keep you awake. Keep a humidifier in your room at night, with the door closed, and that will help keep moisture in the air and easier on your breathing. Winter tends to be drier that other times of the year. The humidifier might make your room feel "muggy," but that is what you need. Answered by Rodger Sabatini 6 months ago.
Taking cough syrup and tylenol cold together?
btw I'm 20 years old and weigh 135 pounds
Asked by Li Weingartner 6 months ago.
An hour and a half ago I took 2 teaspoons of a cough syrup containing Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide (15 mg/5 mL) and Guaifenesin (200 mg/5 mL)...I went to eat dinner and then after dinner I was really tired so I forgot I already took the cough syrup...I took 2 tablets of tylenol cold extra strength containing Acetaminophen (500 mg/tablet), Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide (15 mg/tablet), Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride (30 mg/tablet) and Guaifenesin (100 mg/tablet). So in total I have taken 60 mg of Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide and 600 mg of Guaifenesin within the last 2 hours or so...Am i gonna be okay? Thanks in advance... Answered by Tameka Tanks 6 months ago.
You'll be fine. It's a little high on the dextromethorphan hydrobromide. You can go up to 1200mg on the guaifenesin at one time. Good for you for having the sense to check the ingredients. You can also call your local pharmacist with questions about meds. Answered by Callie Vancil 6 months ago.
Is dura tuss a narcotic?
Asked by Ehtel Wilk 6 months ago.
No! It contains a decongestant (pseudoephedrine hydrochloride) and an expectorant (guaifenesin). Neither are narcotics (opium derivatives such as morphine or codeine). Some people may work in a pharmacy (cashier, perhaps?) but they need to learn to use a dictionary. Answered by Ngan Jakubczak 6 months ago.
That would depend on your definition of narcotic, usually an opium related drug. If it contains pseudoephedrine then that could be a legal concern since pseudoephedrine can be used in methamphetamine synthesis, which is illegal. Answered by Shaunda Sonza 6 months ago.
Yes, it is a narcotic and can result in dependence and/or addiction.. Answered by Dane Salis 6 months ago.
technically yes because it contains pseudoephedrine which is now a schedule 5 drug under the DEA drug scheduling. it also contain GUAIFENESIN which is an expectorant (loosens up the chest) Answered by Giuseppina Hopgood 6 months ago.

Read this Praise be to Allaah. It is not permissible to mix medicines with alcohol, because alcohol must be thrown away. It was narrated that Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri said: We had some wine belonging to an orphan, and when al-Maa’idah was revealed (i.e., the prohibition of khamr or alcohol), I asked the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) about it and I said, “It belongs to the orphan.” He said: “Pour it away.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1263; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi. Secondly: If the medicine is mixed with alcohol, and the percentage of alcohol is so great that this medicine is intoxicating, then it is khamr and it is haraam to take it. If the percentage of alcohol is very low and it does not intoxicate, then it is permissible to take it. It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah (22/110): It is not permissible to mix medicines with intoxicants, but if it is mixed with alcohol, if drinking a lot of it will cause intoxication, it is haraam to handle it and drink it, whether a small amount or a large amount. If drinking a lot of it will not cause intoxication, then it is permissible to handle it and drink it. End quote. Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said: With regard to some medicines that contain alcohol, if the effect of the alcohol in the medicine can be seen in the form of intoxication, then it is haraam, but if no effect is seen, and the alcohol is only added to it as a preservative, then there is nothing wrong with it, because the alcoholic content does not have any effect.

By "messed up" do you mean intoxicated? If so, I presume you would already know how to find what has the highest alcohol content. If you mean something else, please explain! Answered by Richard Bryd 6 months ago.

Use Pseudoephedrine. The following are some brand names of medications containing pseudoephedrine.

Whats the best over the counter drug to take if you feel like you may be getting sick, like flu symptons?
I woke up feeling like I am getting the flu, scratchy throat, body aches, stuffy head, flushed, all that. I dont feel miserable yet but, I think its coming. Is there an over the counter drug or something that may help reduce or eliminate the symptons?
Asked by Otelia Cobern 6 months ago.
Assuming you have no allergies, you should probably take a multi-symptom medicine like DayQuil or Robitussin. The label will tell you which symptoms the medicine is designed to treat. If you want specifics: - You want something with acetaminophen (the medicine in Tylenol), for headaches, body aches, and fever - You want something with pseudoephedrine hydrochloride for your stuffy head. - You want something with guaifenesin and dextromethorphan hydrobromide if you have a cough and chest congestion. In addition, you may want to try taking Vitamin C tablets, echinacea tablets, and zinc tablets. Some people swear that this reduces the severity and intensity of cold and flu, though there's not much scientific evidence to back this up. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids and try to get some rest. Answered by Jerrold Spoleti 6 months ago.
If you truly think it's flu, get to the doctor and he may prescribe TamiFlu. Doesn't prevent the flu but decreases the intensity of the symptoms. However, TamiFlu only works if taken early when symptoms appear. Answered by Heather Neris 6 months ago.
the blue tylenol cold and flu nighttime. numbs the pain and lessens the symptoms effects although the virus is still in your system only lots of rest and liquids will help you over time. it helps you sleep. thus, giving you the rest you need. theres also daytime which works well.

I don't want to scare you even more, but using cold medicine recreationally may be extremely dangerous. I don't advise drug abuse at all, but if you do decide to do it (well.. it is your life after all), then always do extensive research about the substance and its dangers. Did you make sure what other active ingredients the medicine contains besides dextromethorphan? Such as acetaminophen, guaifenesin, pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, chlorpheniramine maleate. Overdosing from them can cause anxiety or even more serious health complications (including organ and brain damage). If your anxiety is severe or you also have other symptoms, then you should get yourself checked by a doctor (and tell him what you consumed). If you feel like having a panic attack, try following things: * Sit down and breathe into a paper bag to slow down your breathing. * Go outside to relax in the open. * If you like showers, try having one. * Breathing meditation (search internet for tips). * Listen soothing, slow and relaxing music. * Call a good friend or your boyfriend: talking or hearing other's voice may help. If it doesn't help or it gets more severe, then talk with an health care professional. Answered by Alberto Bodelson 6 months ago.

Medicines injested orally lose there potency over time. After one year you are only getting about 70 to 80% effectivness from the medicine. It will not hurt you, but you will receive a lower dose then is stated on the bottle/package. Peace out. Answered by Thalia Conzales 6 months ago.
All of these are over the counter medications. Why don't you just go get a fresh supply and then you won't be worrying about whether they can harm you or not. Taking old medications is generally not recommended, not because of harm but because they may be breaking down chemically because of improper storage, etc. and not work as well as fresh medications would for you.
