Reviews for Codeine/guaifenesin

Anonymous January 26, 2010

Cheratussin AC (codeine / guaifenesin): “My daughter and son were both prescribed this and it didn't work for either of them. In fact, they both complained that it gave them a bad headache about an hour after taking it and they are both still coughing all night long. Our pediatrician said this was just as good as Tussionex but much cheaper. I'd rather pay $40 co-pay for the Tussionex since I know it works. No relief for me or my children.”

Cheratussin AC (codeine / guaifenesin): “I was prescribed this for a sore throat and mild cough after I found out I had Mono, and Walking Pneumonia. It didn't do a THING! I couldn't feel it at all, and it made my throat itch as it went down. Plus it's so icky tasting.”

Cheratussin AC (codeine / guaifenesin): “This did little for my cough - still waking up in the middle of the night with coughing fits. Even when I take another dose at night, it doesn't help. In fact, I've now woken up every night while I've been taking this so will stop.”

Cheratussin AC (codeine / guaifenesin): “I was using Mucinex DM and just wasn't doing the trick for me. I wasn't sleeping at night. So got this and I am slowing getting back to sleeping without being interrupted with coughing.”

Iophen-C NR (codeine / guaifenesin): “I am 68 and have had asthma for about 15 years. For a while I was hospitalized about once a year with a respiratory infection. Thanks to my Ddoctor we have headed off many infections over the years with a short treatment program of Iophen-C NR to get rid of the congestion. It has worked well for me. I also take anti-convulsants (since I was 15) and suffer no side effects with the syrup. I put the bottle on the counter with a slip of paper to monitor the dosage. It has been a blessing for me.”

Robitussin-AC (codeine / guaifenesin): “This medication should be taken exactly as the labeling indicates... impressive relief of symtomatic coughs! Finally got a good nights sleep, which did as much to reilieve my condition as anything. Great.”
