Interactions between your drugs

Moderate

brompheniramine tiotropium

Applies to: VazoTuss HC (brompheniramine / hydrocodone / phenylephrine) and tiotropium

Using brompheniramine together with tiotropium may increase side effects such as drowsiness, blurred vision, dry mouth, heat intolerance, flushing, decreased sweating, difficulty urinating, abdominal cramping, constipation, rapid heart beat, confusion, memory problems, and glaucoma. Although serious side effects are not very common with inhaled or topically applied preparations because only limited amounts of the medication generally get absorbed into the bloodstream from the lungs or skin, they can sometimes occur, especially in the elderly or when combined with other medications that have similar side effects. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact. You should avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how these medications affect you. When using an inhaled product by nebulizer, keep your eyes closed or use an eye mask to avoid having the medication get into the eyes, which can cause blurry vision and eye pain as well as increase absorption of the medication into the bloodstream. When using a topical preparation such as a cream or solution, avoid applying to broken skin or using occlusive dressings over the application areas, and also avoid touching the eyes until after you wash your hands with soap and water. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.

Drug and food interactions

Major

HYDROcodone food

Applies to: VazoTuss HC (brompheniramine / hydrocodone / phenylephrine)

Do not use alcohol or medications that contain alcohol while you are receiving treatment with HYDROcodone. This may increase nervous system side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, lightheadedness, difficulty concentrating, and impairment in thinking and judgment. In severe cases, low blood pressure, respiratory distress, fainting, coma, or even death may occur. If you are taking certain long-acting formulations of hydrocodone, consumption of alcohol may also cause rapid release of the drug, resulting in high blood levels that may be potentially lethal. Likewise, you should avoid consuming grapefruit and grapefruit juice, as this may increase the blood levels and effects of hydrocodone. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions on how to take this or other medications you are prescribed. Do not use more than the recommended dose of HYDROcodone, and avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medication affects you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medication without first talking to your doctor.
