I have a respiratory infection and the Dr prescribed Phenergan (Promethazine) w/ codeine for my cough. It's the same thing he always prescribes for me only this time it tastes very bitter. Usually it tastes very pleasant (fruity and sweet). However, the color is the same as it usually is; purple. I went to a different pharmacy this time, one closer to home. I'm wondering if they screwed up the prescription and gave me something else instead... What do you think? Answered by Edgardo Goulette 1 year ago.

Is this medicine mixed by the pharmacy? If it is, the original pharmacy probably adds that flavoring to cover the bad taste. The new pharmacy may not add this flavoring, so it ends up tasting pretty terrible. Answered by Era Kin 1 year ago.

Cough medicine is supposed to taste crappy. Some pharmacies will put flavoring in them for you if it's that bad. And who cares if it's the wrong stuff? You could get rich suing them if you od or something ;) Answered by Rema Stopka 1 year ago.

Different pharmacies mix different flavorings with their medications. Someone probably mixed the flavoring incorrectly. Take it back and ask for another bottle. Answered by Kenda Clodfelter 1 year ago.

Call the pharmacy and tell them how bad it tastes. They have flavorings they can use, which is probably what your pharmacist you usually use does. Answered by Erik Borner 1 year ago.

Call the pharmacy and ask; or if you think they'll lie to you - call your doctor. Don't ask millions of people who have no training in medicine or pharmaceuticals. Answered by Mai Panone 1 year ago.

Is it ok that my Dr prescribed me phenergan and tylenol 3 (w/ codeine) while I was pregnant?
If not, why? And why would he give them to me if it weren't okay? Asked by Lura Standerwick 1 year ago.

As you know i gave you that site. It does say not to while pregnant. You have a choice of calling your doctor or showing him the site. I bet he allready knows and feels the risk is low for you while he watches over you. But sometimes doctors do not know and a pharmist catches it. It is best be safe then sorry. Contact him and ask hun. Your does may be low enough he feels there is no risk. I was not trying to worry you. Sorry If i did. Answered by Ayako Ahrendes 1 year ago.

The phenergan is safe. Tylenol is safe as well but I don't care if you are a nurse or someone that calls themselves a health provider, you are not well informed, or you are a reckless person for saying that Codeine is safe during pregnancy!!!! No amount of codeine or morphine or any narcotic is safe during pregnancy...if you are trying to get pregnant then you can take it because you are not pregnant yet!! HELLO!!! There are a bunch of Dingle Berry's on this site...Do me a favor and go to a GYN, preferably a decent one. Answered by Kaylene Besares 1 year ago.

DO'S AND DON'TS OF TAKING MEDICINE DURING PREGNANCY Do take the medicine in the exact dosage and for the length of time your doctor recommends. Taking more is not better, and it is often worse. Don't take a lower dose than your doctor prescribes without consulting your doctor. The lower dose may do you no good, yet baby may still get the effects of the drug. Don't read the PDR (Physician's Desk Reference). The information in the PDR about drugs during pregnancy is there to protect the manufacturer rather than to inform the consumer. The warnings are needlessly scary and are often based upon research in which huge doses of a drug are given to experimental animals; the research may have little application to humans. Don't take medicines, even over-the-counter ones, without consulting with your doctor. Don't take over-the-counter remedies that contain several drugs unless advised by your doctor (e.g., cold remedies may contain mixtures of antihistamines, decongestants, aspirin, etc.). Don't panic if you've taken a drug that you later read may be unsafe. Odds are greatly on your baby's side that no harm was done. Do compromise. While some medications pose some risks to baby, a sick mom is not good for baby either. For example, if your nasal passages are so clogged you can't breathe, a one-time dose of a decongestant spray, such as AfrinR, has been shown not to have any harmful effects on the fetuses that were studied. Do think about the effect of the drug on your baby. Because your baby's liver and kidneys are immature, he cannot eliminate the drug as you can, so the drug may stay in baby's system longer and at a higher level. Don't use medicines if you are trying to conceive, especially in the first month. The first month of fetal organ development is a high-risk period for the effects of drugs. The "flu" you're experiencing may turn out to be early-pregnancy nausea. If you are already taking physician-approved medications while pregnant, check with your doctor before taking an additional drug. Also, when your doctor gives you a prescription for a new medication, be sure to tell him or her about any other medications you are taking. Certain drugs may be safe if taken individually, but not be safe if taken in combination with others. Answered by Danika Jarnigan 1 year ago.

I am no doctor, however.. When I was pregnant I was given phenegran for nausea. Tylenol is safe during pregnancy. The codeine I don't know. Many drugs ARE safe during pregnancy. Did your doctor know you are pregnant? Maybe call your OB, and ask him/her. Answered by Drusilla Shiels 1 year ago.

Call your pharmacist and ask. That's what they are there for and that's what they go to school to know. Actually, when I was pregnant, I was told by my doctor that no drug is technically "safe" for pregnant women because to be deemed "safe" for pregnant women, it would have had to have been tested on pregnant women and where are you going to find pregnant women volunteering to test drugs for the FDA? So when something is said to be "safe" for pregnant women, it actually means no one (or maybe not enough pregnant women) have complained of any ill effects from taking that medication. It's still a roll of the dice and the choice is basically yours to make. Answered by Rasheeda Urbieta 1 year ago.

Tylenol 3 is fine and phenergan is for what?? Isnt that for nausea?? If so I took it... My son is fine... I took several things because I had several health problems... Answered by Chad Pavlovich 1 year ago.

They are both safe during pregnancy. I am prescribed both as well. I don't generally take them, but they are classified as safe during pregnancy. You can look at the information sheet given to you with the prescription or go to drugs.com and read up on this. Answered by Mireya Peschong 1 year ago.

absoulety, I am trying to get pregnant and was in the ER the other day, and the only safe medication ( pain) while trying to get or already pregnant. Phenergan is for nausea to ease your stomach. I am also a med nurse so I know !! Hope this eases your worries.. Answered by Franchesca Pizzella 1 year ago.

Yes. just as long as you don't abuse it. When I was pregnant with my daughter I was hospitalized and they where giving me morphine, and my daughter is fine. Phenergan is an anti nausea med. and everything will be OK. your doctor would not have gave it to you if it would be harmful. Answered by Mariel Strasters 1 year ago.

I don't plan to do this, I'm just curious. We're learning about inhalants and stuff in health class and just curious about this certain area. Answered by Edward Vandekieft 1 year ago.

Phenergan with codeine (promethazine with codeine) is a cough medication which when taken abusively can cause addiction by itself. You don't need to mix it with anything and drinking it in excess is dangerous.Respiratory depression is a potentially serious or fatal adverse drug reaction associated with the use of codeine, but mainly the danger lies in the much more potent and CNS-depressing phenothiazine-related antihistamine promethazine. This depression is dose-related and is the mechanism for the potentially fatal consequences of overdose: respiratory or cardiac arrest. As with most CNS depressants, mixing with alcohol greatly increases the risk of respiratory failure and other complications. Answered by Warren Iozzo 1 year ago.

You get two things by God (I call Him Krishn)'s grace. One is to be born in this human body and the second is association with the Guru. The first grace has been done upon us, for whatever reasons God has deemed fit. And the second grace will be done on us, when we are vehemently in search of the Guru having full trust on God. When we are in total belief that without Guru we can not achieve the real goal of life and utilize the significance of being born in this human body. Answered by Leatrice Leverone 1 year ago.

What are you giving your kids for coughs and colds since the recall?
Nurse hotline discussed with the doctor and called me back to say: For my 30 lb 2 yr old it's okay to give 1 tsp of Tylenol Plus Cold. Asked by Leonel Buckingham 1 year ago.

My 2 year old just came down with a cold and he is so miserable with the goop running from his nose and all I have in the pantry is Tylenol Cough & Cold... I'm giving him something for the fever but I don't want to leave all that mucous there lest it get infected. I'm about to call the doctor and/or pharmacist, and I'll let you know what I learn, but I was wondering what you've done? Answered by Randell Dajani 1 year ago.

phenergan w/ codeine ~ with my kids and their allergies, it's the only thing the allergist advises I use and he keeps the prescription filled just in case. Answered by Kelly Kinyon 1 year ago.

i havent had much luck with nursing hotlines, I've had better luck calling the pediatrician's office instead. Expectorants help to mobilize the sputum (mucus in the lungs) so that coughs are more productive. And I know this will sound gross, but have them try to spit out the mucus onto a kleenex and look at it for any yellow or green color as this will be signs of an active bacterial infection and can be treated by prescribed antibiotics. Only dry coughs should be treated with a cough suppressant because you need to cough to get the junk out, otherwise it can turn into pneumonia. For productive coughs they should be given an expectorant or mucolytic. Two products to consider (call physician first for giving to children!) Guaifenesin (as in Mucinex) - an expectorant available OTC at least for adults, found in many different brands Acetylcysteine (Mucomyst) - a mucolytic by prescription and is inhaled via a nebulizer but it really stinks, like rotten eggs. In 2002, researchers at the University of Bristol (Schroeder & Fahey) published a study in the British Medical Journal indicating that some cough medicines are no more effective than placebos for acute coughs in adults, including coughs related to upper respiratory tract infections (from wikipedia on 'cough medicine'). And even though most children's cold medicines have been removed from the shelves, doesnt mean they arent available by prescription. I fear with the removal of these products that some parents will unwittingly turn to the adult preparations for their kids. Answered by Chieko Jelome 1 year ago.
