Hello my daughter has some cold symptoms that are really bothering her and I wanted to check on the medications she s prescribed and if any others can be taken, and considering drug interaction. She has very bad ear pain, sinuses clogged/running with yellow mucus. She went to her school clinic (away at college) and they have prescribed her Promethazine vc syrup and moxacilin along with suggesting Zyratec D. Should the promethazine help her ear pain and if not can she take anything else with it? She had a lot of coughing earlier today where she said she s almost throw up from coughing so much. Thanks, Mary

On Friday I was diagnosed with Type 1 & 2 flu with sinusitis. I was prescribed Tamiflu and a Z Pak along with Promethazine syrup (1 tsp) twice per day. My cough hasn t gotten any better. Can I increase the amount of cough syrup? If so, by how much? I m 59 B F. I weigh 200 lb.

I would like to know why Dr.s are so reluctant to proscribe promethazine-codeine syrup qua. Had to pay cash. Even Kaiser gave me grief over it. Had to go to COSTCO to get prescription filled. Used it once, cough has stopped. I can t help believe they all want us sick, all the time. I suffered for months trying everything with no sleep lost of a lot of weight. This industry does not have our best interest in mind.
