expectorant-decongestant-narcotic antitussive liquid-oral
GENERIC NAME: EXPECTORANT/DECONGESTANT/NARCOTIC ANTITUSSIVE LIQUID - ORAL
USES: This combination medication is used to treat dry cough and nasal congestion caused by the common cold, flu, or other respiratory illness as determined by your doctor. An expectorant loosens mucus in the lungs, while the decongestant works to relieve nasal congestion. A low dose of narcotic cough suppressant works directly on the brain to decrease the urge to cough.
HOW TO USE: Use this medication exactly as prescribed. Do not increase your dose, take it more frequently or use it for a longer period of time than prescribed because this drug can be habit-forming. If using this drug for an extended period of time, do not suddenly stop using this drug without consulting your doctor. Unless otherwise directed by your doctor, drink plenty of fluids when you use this medication. The fluid will help loosen phlegm/mucous in your breathing passages. If your condition persists or worsens, be sure to contact your doctor or pharmacist.
