Went in to my doctors office last week for a fever that stayed for three days along with a bad cough. He gave me this medication to take after a week nothing has changed my cough is really bad sometimes but the fever went away.

Saw the Nurse Practitioner with severe chest congestion and painful pulled muscles when I cough as a result. I was prescribed Promethazine VC 5 ml. This medicine does absolutely nothing for cough or chest congestion. I did get a runny nose as a result, but wasn't suffering from nasal congestion. Very disappointed with the nurse practitioner as with each cough came gunshot-like pain in my mid-section.

Occasionally I get a chronic dry hacking cough and it is usually during the middle of the night. This is the only thing that works for me. I prefer the regular grape flavored thick syrup. The syrup with the decongestic in it called VC.

Started druing first dose. Dry mouth, difficulty breathing, clothes feel like sand paper on my skin, weak, tiredness, unable to sleep off drowsiness as coughing increased. No good effects found. I took this drug with codeine in the past and I feel it worked pretty well then. I dont remember ever having these side effects then.

Since I take meds for heart conditions, congestive heart failure and anxiety, I had to be very careful when I took this. I did note that after a few days of use, I started getting muscle stiffness and had to cut back on the dosage given by my doctor.
