Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid


Pronunciation: klor-fen-EER-a-meen/hye-droe-KOE-done
Generic Name: Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone
Brand Name: S-T Forte 2
Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid is used for:

Treating symptoms of the common cold, flu, or hayfever, and other upper respiratory allergies such as cough, runny nose, sneezing, itching of the nose and throat, and itchy, watery eyes. Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid is a narcotic antitussive (cough suppressant) and antihistamine combination. The antitussive (codeine) works by suppressing the cough center in the brain. The antihistamine (promethazine) works by blocking the action of histamine, which reduces the symptoms of an allergic reaction such as itch, watery eyes and runny nose.

Do NOT use Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid if: you are allergic to any ingredient in Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid or any other codeine-related medicine (eg, codeine) you have diarrhea associated with poisoning, antibiotic use, or a bacterial infection (from eating or drinking contaminated food or water) you are taking sodium oxybate (GHB)

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Before using Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid:

Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid. Tell your health care provider if you are taking any other medicines, especially any of the following:

Barbiturate anesthetics (eg, thiopental), cimetidine, ketorolac, naltrexone, or sodium oxybate (GHB) because the risk of side effects of Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid, including dangerous sleepiness and a decrease in the ability to breathe, may be increased Rifampin or risperidone because they may decrease Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid's effectiveness Hydantoins (eg, phenytoin) because their actions and the risk of their side effects may be increased by Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid Mexiletine because its effectiveness may be decreased by Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid Naltrexone because the effectiveness of Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid will be decreased and withdrawal symptoms may occur in patients who have become physically dependent on opioids. You must not take naltrexone until you have stopped taking Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid for 7 to 10 days and after a naloxone challenge test is negative.

This may not be a complete list of all interactions that may occur. Ask your health care provider if Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.

Ask your pharmacist for help if you are unsure of how to measure your dose. If you miss a dose of Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid and you are taking 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.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid.

Important safety information: Chlorpheniramine/Hydrocodone Liquid may cause drowsiness or dizziness. These effects may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines.

Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone Liquid


Pronunciation: a-SEET-a-MIN-oh-fen/HYE-droe-KOE-done
Generic Name: Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone
Brand Name: Examples include Hycet and Lortab

Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone Liquid contains acetaminophen. Severe and sometimes fatal liver problems, including the need for liver transplant, have been reported with the use of acetaminophen. Most cases of these liver problems occurred in patients taking excessive doses of acetaminophen (more than 4,000 mg per day). Also, patients who developed these liver problems were often using more than 1 medicine that contained acetaminophen. Discuss any questions or concerns with your doctor.


Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone Liquid is used for:

Treating moderate to moderately severe pain. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone Liquid is an analgesic combination. Acetaminophen works by lowering a chemical in the brain that stimulates pain nerves. Hydrocodone, an opioid (narcotic) analgesic, works by binding to receptors in the brain and nervous system used by the body's natural "pain relievers." The combination may provide better pain relief than either medicine alone.

Do NOT use Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone Liquid if: you are allergic to any ingredient in Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone Liquid you have diarrhea associated with poisoning, antibiotic use, or a bacterial infection (from eating or drinking contaminated food or water) you are taking sodium oxybate (GHB)

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Before using Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone Liquid:

Some medical conditions may interact with Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone Liquid. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances if you are allergic to other narcotic medicines (eg, medicines that contain codeine, morphine, oxycodone) if you have or have ever had alcoholism, substance abuse, narcotic dependence, or if you consume more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day if you have a history of suicidal thoughts or behaviors if you have a head injury, increased pressure in the head, a brain injury or tumor, epilepsy, or seizures if you are having an asthma attack if you have an acute stomach or intestinal problem, chronic inflammation and ulceration of the bowel, or you have had recent abdominal surgery if you have adrenal gland problems; enlargement of the prostate gland; heart failure or lung disease, including shortness of breath; liver or kidney problems; thyroid disease; urinary blockage; or viral hepatitis

Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone Liquid. Tell your health care provider if you are taking any other medicines, especially any of the following:

Barbiturate anesthetics (eg, thiopental), cimetidine, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) (eg, phenelzine), sodium oxybate (GHB), or tricyclic antidepressants (eg, amitriptyline) because serious side effects, such as increased sleepiness and decreased ability to breathe, may occur Naltrexone because it may decrease the effectiveness of Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone Liquid and withdrawal symptoms may occur in patients who have become physically dependent on opioids

This may not be a complete list of all interactions that may occur. Ask your health care provider if Acetaminophen/Hydrocodone Liquid may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.

Neo HC


Generic Name: chlorpheniramine, hydrocodone, and phenylephrine (KLOR fe NEER a meen, HYE droe KOE done, FEN il EFF rin)
Brand Names: B-Tuss, Coughtuss, Cytuss HC, De-Chlor HC, DroTuss-CP, Ed-TLC, Ed-Tuss HC, Endal-HD Plus, H-C Tussive, Histussin-HC, Hydro-PC II, Hydro-PC II Plus, Hydron CP, Liquicough HC, Maxi-Tuss HCX, Mintuss MS, Neo HC, Poly-Tussin, Poly-Tussin HD, Relacon-HC, Relacon-HC NR, Relasin-HC, Rindal HD Plus, Rindal-HD, Triant-HC, Tusana-D, Z-Cof HC

What is Neo HC (chlorpheniramine, hydrocodone, and phenylephrine)?

Chlorpheniramine is an antihistamine that reduces the natural chemical histamine in the body. Histamine can produce symptoms of sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and runny nose.

Hydrocodone is a narcotic cough medicine.

Phenylephrine is a decongestant that shrinks blood vessels in the nasal passages. Dilated blood vessels can cause nasal congestion (stuffy nose).

The combination of chlorpheniramine, hydrocodone, and phenylephrine is used to treat runny or stuffy nose, sinus congestion, and cough caused by the common cold or flu.

Chlorpheniramine, hydrocodone, and phenylephrine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about Neo HC (chlorpheniramine, hydrocodone, and phenylephrine)?

Serious, life threatening side effects can occur if you use chlorpheniramine, hydrocodone, and phenylephrine before the MAO inhibitor has cleared from your body. Chlorpheniramine, hydrocodone, and phenylephrine may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert.
