Comment:
I was familiar with tussenex suspension, it is the best overall cough medicine ever conceived, the only problem is it's widespread abuse, so it's hard to get it prescribed. Remember to take with a big glass of water, and to eat something (even a few soda crackers) afterward, like all hydrocodones, it CAN make one feel a little nauseous on a total empty stomach. This pill last a long time a ... Show Full Comment

I had a bad cough and went to doctor, got prescription for the Tussicaps. Had to go to 3 different pharmacies before I found one that had Tussicaps. Just one dose of this drug made my cough subside, but also made me nauseous and dizzy for an entire day. I would rather cough.

Comment:
Was in severe pain (chest, ribs, back, head) from a continuous cough for 4 days. This settled the coughing down within 3-4 hours and almost completely stopped it in about 6 hours. Pain gone. I'm pretty out of it (I've taken 2 and am ready for a 3rd), but am really thrilled to be out of pain and not coughing.

Never heard of the drug until I went to the doc for a cough and he prescribed it. Best thing I have ever taken to reduce the urge to cough.

Comment:
This medicine was great!! I was really suspicious of a cough suppressant pill but was pleasantly surprised. In the past I have taken codine cough syrup and that puts me right out and will sleep for at least 6 hours. With TussiCaps I don't have to worry about a nasty taste or measuring. The only thing that i could say is a downside is that it makes me really relaxed and happy almost sleepy but ... Show Full Comment
