Side Effects Of A Combination Of Pseudoephedrine And Dextromethorphan?
I want to ask Pseudoephedrine HCl 30 mg Dextromethorphan HBr 10 mg right side effects are equally sleepy well what happens if the two drugs are combined ?? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
Pseudoephedrine HCl is a decongestant drug that functions in treating nasal congestion, such as from allergies, irritation, benign or malignant tumors, to infections of the nasal cavity and / or sinuses. This drug works by constricting blood vessels through increased stimulation of alpha adrenergy receptors in the airway wall. Not only that, this drug can also stimulate beta adrenergic receptors so that it can relieve respiratory tract.
Meanwhile, dextromethorphan HBr is an antitussive drug that is able to suppress cough stimuli that originate in the brain. With this function, this drug is useful in dealing with dry cough, mainly due to airway obstruction.
One side effect that can arise from the consumption of dextromethorphan HBr is easily drowsy. However, this is not the case with consumption of pseudoephedrine HCl. In fact, more frequent consumption of pseudoephedrine HCl will make sufferers difficult to sleep. Therefore, as long as there are medical indications that require it, it is okay to take both drugs together. It's just that, you need to understand, that the two drugs are not classified as over-the-counter drugs, so their consumption should be done directly under the supervision of a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
