Hi,from what I have read it would seem to me it does not... just to be on the safe side ask your pharmacsit befrore you take it please from a caring individual

First of all: DuraDEX Chemical Information

dextromethorphan hydrobromide

guaifenesin - A glyceryl guaiacolate with expectorant effects. Guaifenesin increases respiratory tract mucus secretions, acts as an irritant to gastric vagal receptors and recruits efferent parasympathetic reflexes that cause glandular exocytosis. This agent reduces the viscosity of mucus secretion by reducing adhesiveness and surface tension as well as increasing hydration of mucus. Guaifenesin promotes the efficiency of the mucociliary mechanism important in removing accumulated secretions from the upper and lower airway.

Second; What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking DuraDEX (Dextromethorphan and guaifenesin)?

Do not use a cough or cold medicine if you have used an MAO inhibitor such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), phenelzine (Nardil), rasagiline (Azilect), selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam), or tranylcypromine (Parnate) within the past 14 days. Serious, life-threatening side effects can occur if you take cough or cold medicine before the MAO inhibitor has cleared from your body.

Before taking dextromethorphan and guaifenesin, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have emphysema or chronic bronchitis. If you have any of these conditions, you may not be able to use this medication, or you may need a dosage adjustment or special tests during treatment.

FDA pregnancy category C. This medication may be harmful to an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment.

Where can I get more information?
Your pharmacist has information about dextromethorphan and guaifenesin written for health professionals that you may read.

I hope all of the above helps.
