I hate coughing. I am sure every does as well. It is extremely irritating. Sometimes I just feel like ripping my throat out. I took over-the-counter medications like Robitussin, NyQuil, Delsym and nothing worked.
A few years ago, my mother gave me the syrup medication that her doctor prescribed to her. I was hesitated at first because it was a prescription drug, but coughing was already worse than hell so what do I had to lose? I took a table spoon, got knocked out, woke up and the cough was gone. Holy smoke, it was like magic potion. So whenever I was coughing that syrup was all that I needed.
Then my mom lost the medication and she couldn’t remember the name. I had to call her previous doctor to track it down. The last time I called the record keeper gave me the wrong one. I finally got it today after speaking to the nurse. The cough killer is Phenergan with Codeine. According to Drugs.com:
Codeine is a narcotic. It is a pain reliever and a cough suppressant.
Promethazine is an antihistamine. It blocks the effects of the naturally occurring chemical histamine in your body.
The combination of codeine and promethazine is used to treat cold or allergy symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, and cough.
Now I am not going to let the cough ruin my day and night anymore.
