Descriptions


Hydrocodone and chlorpheniramine combination is used to relieve cough and nasal congestion associated with the common cold and upper respiratory allergies in adults.

Hydrocodone is a narcotic antitussive (cough suppressant). It acts directly on the cough center in the brain to relieve cough. Chlorpheniramine is an antihistamine, which is used to relieve or prevent symptoms of an allergy.

When hydrocodone is used for a long time, it may become habit-forming, causing mental or physical dependence. Physical dependence may lead to withdrawal side effects if treatment is stopped suddenly.

This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.
