Is all Tussionex the same?
I have Tussionex pennkinetic. Is this extended release? Or would it say susp or something like that on the bottle? Thanks Asked by Ruthann Lavertu 1 year ago.

Tussionex = Tussionex PennKinetic (all Tussionex is the same). There is only one brand name and only one dosage made; there are no generic forms or alternative dosages. It is extended release and contains 2 drugs: 1) Hydrocodone (10mg), a narcotic for pain and/or cough (frequent abused by pain-seeking narcotic abusers) 2) Chlorpheniramine (8mg), an antihistamine that can make you a little sleepy = = = There is a non-extended version, but this is called HyTan. It contains only 5mg of Hydrocodone and 4mg of chlorpheniramine. = = = Answered by Jeanne Aguilar 1 year ago.


What is the expiration on a prescription of Tussionex Pennkinetic Susp?
I have either the flu or bronchitis or similar and have a painful burning in my throat and cough and want to take some of my Tussionex prescribed on 12/27/2005. It's almost a full year later - 12/11/2006. Is it still good/safe to take? Thanks for any information you can provide. Asked by Tommye Chlebek 1 year ago.

Expiration dates are meant to be early because the companies know that people will not follow the dates strictly. Therefore, there is a built in grace period, usually six months to a year. Nevertheless, you have to consider what the medicine is because different meds do break down faster than others. The ingredients in Tussionex are pretty stable and should be OK--that is, they are still good and they are still safe. Answered by Leeanna Lachat 1 year ago.

Tussionex Pennkinetic Susp Mpi Answered by Maggie Janssen 1 year ago.

You can't be harmed by expired medication but the chemicals in them do degrade over time. The strength that you need may no longer be present. You should see a doctor and get a newer prescription or see if the old medication is still at full effect. Answered by Marcela Wilcinski 1 year ago.

Never take any prescriptions for anything other than what your doctor has prescribed them for. You may have pneumonia, too, therefore, your condition requires a visit to the doctor. If it is pneumonia, you need antibiotics. An expectorant will help you cough up some of that junk that's in your lungs, but that infection can and will spread. Talk to your doctor, and see what he or she says after you have been checked out in the office. Your medication may be past its shelf life, and I know that some meds are harmful after they reach their expiration date. Answered by Mia Ragon 1 year ago.

Is this medicine safe for a child???
My niece was prescibed Tussionex Pennkinetic Susp.The dosage is 1/2 teaspoon every 12 hours.But my sister is not sure if it is safe to give being that my niece is only 6. I need to know if its safe. Thanks! Asked by Royal Denhartog 1 year ago.

The active ingredients of Tussionex Pennkinetic Suspension are Hydrocodone with Chlorpheniramine. And it is stronlgy recommended to seek medical advice and talking to her pediatrician to make sure it will not cause any undesirable side effects that would outweight the benefits. However, all medications--pharmaceutical drugs--may pose health risks at variable degrees to patients. And Tussionex is not the exception. Good luck! :) Answered by Glen Arnzen 1 year ago.

yeah that is the normal dosage they go off the weight of the child but that is the average dosage for children that age. Plus if a doctor prescribed it....the dosage is safe they figure that up and then the pharmacist when you get your medication filled double checks everything and if there is anything not correct the pharmacist will not dispense the medication and call the doctor for the correct dosage or a different medication. Answered by Jc Weichel 1 year ago.

That is a pretty strong medicine. It would really depend on the weight of the child. I work in a pharmacy (tech) and I would really want to make SURE not to go over the dosage the dr. prescribed. If he prescribed it...he probably knows. But if you still are not sure, call your local pharmacy and ask the pharmacist to check the dosage by the child's weight. They can figure it according to that. I would definitely WANT to be sure. Hope that helped. Answered by Cayla Helveston 1 year ago.

Unless your sister is a doctor, I would put my money on the licensed medical professional as having a qualified opinion about the appropriateness of the prescription. Answered by Shirely Kerper 1 year ago.

Since I can't answer my own question - here is the information I dug up: Tussionex Extended-Release Suspension is a cough-suppressant/antihistamine combination used to relieve coughs and the upper respiratory symptoms of colds and allergies. Hydrocodone, a mild narcotic similar to codeine, is believed to work directly on the cough center. Chlorpheniramine, an antihistamine, reduces itching and swelling and dries up secretions from the eyes, nose, and throat. Tussionex Pennkinetic Extended-Release Suspension is a narcotic antitussive (cough suppressant) and antihistamine combination. The antitussive works by suppressing the cough center in the brain. The antihistamine works by blocking the action of histamine, which reduces the symptoms of an allergic reaction such as itch, watery eyes and runny nose. In short, it is the same thing just with a different name. Answered by Victoria Goral 1 year ago.

Why would you even consider taking drugs that you have no idea what they are and you are asking people on a site-you don't know us- are you silly or just a drug addict.? Time to get some help before you kill your self, or destroy your brain. Yes I know what all those drugs are, and they all can hurt you. Consider emailing me.

i dont know what "promothazine" is but promethazine is like supposed to be used to treat allergies and stuff but alot of people use it as a sedative. Answered by Roxana Byan 1 year ago.


What kind of cough syrup is considered sizzurp?
its not nyquil. its prescription cough medicine i know that much... and true sizzurp is soda, promethazine, and a jolly rancher. Asked by Garret Verghese 1 year ago.

the other two answers are wrong. i'm from houston so i know what the real thing is lol its promethazine and coedine syrup. usually they throw a jolly rancher or two in there to make it taste better. promethazine is not really recreational by itself, but it potenaties the coedine. by adding sedation. it can also be tussionex. tussionex is stronger anyways and is hellaa good. tastes like candy (: you can take some bendryl if you want to poteniate your high.. or drink some grapefruit juice. have fun :P Answered by Justina Blank 1 year ago.

Nyquil w/ added alcohol. its hard to find anything with alcohol in it these days, because it was available for minors and they were using it for other purposes. Edit: Houston Girl, Your Wrong! Just because you are from "H-Town" Doesn't necessarily mean you know what your talking about. Complete Idiocy. Hydrocodone(10 mg. per 5 ml dose, which happeneds to be absolutely nothing unless you down the entire bottle and then some!) is a generic for Vicodin, which means it is a lesser of the authentic product. This ALSO contains traces of Tylenol, therefore, the stuff you are taking has much less to get you "high". Therefore, I am not recommending you take this to get a high, ultimately it can cause severe problems for your kidneys and liver. SIZZURP: The original formula: Promethazine w/Codeine syrup Any fruit flavored soda A jolly rancher Put it all in a styrofoam cup and enjoy. The codeine is mainly responsible for the euphoria felt after drinking sizzurp. Promethazine causes motor skill impairment, lethargy, and extreme drowsiness. If it doesn't have promethazine, it ain't real sizzurp. DXM is not a component of sizzurp, although it may produce vaguely similar effects to the above recipe in doses ranging from 150 - 250 mg. If you have trouble sleeping, concentrating, or are unhappy and simply need a "high" to feel good about life consult your doctor for further instruction and prescription , they have alot better medication which will have less effects internally on your organs. :) please take my advice. I am interested to go in further detail if you are interested. [Addition: being from a certain location does not make you more aware of absolutely anything, know your facts before you start accusing others of "not knowing what they are talking about :)] Answered by Wilbur Therrien 1 year ago.

lol idk but its a great question.....I thought it was cough syrup and alcohol from wat I heard... Answered by Apolonia Steeber 1 year ago.
