What Is It?: This is a combination anticholinergic and narcotic cough suppressant combination. The anticholinergic works by drying up secretions and the narcotic depresses the cough reflex in the brain.
How To Use: Take or give by mouth with or without food. If stomach upset occurs, take with food to reduce stomach irritation. If you miss a dose and you are using it regularly, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
