"THE TUSSIONEX CONSPIRACY"- Tussionex is a good cough syrup with codeine. Its also at least $75/bottle.
I'm very sick with Gawwwd knows what. I went to the hospital and i had a real nice doctor. He gave me a Zpack. I explained to him in plain English NOT to give me a liquid cough syrup because they are too expensive.

After all was said and done, i got two RXs.

Tussionex
Zpack.

I told the nurse i couldnt afford the Tussionex, she said "oh just have the pharmacist call us back and we will change it"



This has happened to me 3 times now. Now, for those of you who say so what?
Well, my guess is they cannot sell the stuff to anyone as its not in anyones formulary, and its out of the reach of most people to pay for cash.

They insist on pushing it.

Its classified as a narcotic, oh joy! I'd love the high i can get from that! But i cannot pay for it.

NOW LISTEN TO ME: I WORKED FOR YEARS AT A CVS PHARMACY AND I KNOW YOU CAN GET THE EXACT SAME RESULTS FROM TYLENOL 3. ITS PENNIES, AND IT SUPPRESSES THE COUGH NICELY, AND TAKES CARE OF SOME OF THE BODY ACHES AND PAIN.

I asked my local cvs pharmacist to please call the hospital and he said he did and it couldnt be changed.

I explained to him what i know about Tylenol 3, and if he could ask for it instead. He looked at me as if i had 3 heads and said its not the same thing.

I BEG TO DIFFER. I am knowledgeable about these things.

So here i sit, coughing my ass off, and i strained a muscle on the right side of my stomach from the coughing.

The moral of this story is:

IF YOU GO TO ANYONE FOR A BAD COUGH AND BODY ACHES, AND YOU CANNOT AFFORD THE LIQUID MED, ASK FOR TYLENOL 3. (other pain killers may help too, but if you want cheap and not delve into something that will make you a junkie, please get Tylenol 3.


WHY ARE DOCTORS ALWAYS TRYING TO PUSH THIS MED?

Now i'm going to have to go back and try again for something cheap.

Ask for Hycodan instead. Duh.

If you want real codeine, there is Robotussin AC. It's cheap. It's nasty.

OTC, Delsym is Tussionex without hydrocodone. It has the patented suspension though.

Tussionex works better for me than Tylenol 3's. It's stronger. I always ask for it when I get a severe resp infection.

I get phenergan/promethazine syrup with codeine as well and although it works I have to take much more than the recommended dosage. Have you tried asking for that?
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

 Quoting: natasha77


The phenergan with codeine is much much cheaper and it will work. I've went through about 5 bottles in the last few years. Took some dosage adjusting to get it to work but it's at least $50 cheaper than the Tussionex so it's a good deal.

I've had issues with bronchitis since I was little, to the point that I couldn't sleep for days because I coughed non stop. I feel for you, it's fucking awful. I'm just now getting over a bout of it.

The Tussionex, I pay more than $80 for it but I make it last for a long time so it's usually worth the cost in the end.

 Quoting: natasha77


The Robotussin with codiene is rx, obviously. I have been prescribed it. It is just like regular Robotussin, but with codeine instead of the other stuff. If OTC crap works for you, just buy that.

The reason Tussionex is so expensive is the patented suspension process. (This does not work in the generic version. Do not buy the generic because it is not worth it.) That is why it is expensive. I HAVE TO use Tussionex. So, I know a lot about it.

But, if I was lucky enough to only cough when I am sick, I would just get hycodan. There's also codiclear. Tussionex before the suspension was called hydrocodone gold and it was about the same price as anything else.

But, i used to save money on not getting my cough medicine filled and now I cough every day of my life. So, I would recommend buying the prescription. In the long run, you will be better off. Hycodan is better if you have a lot of chest congestion, btw.

It should be obvious to all by now why tussionex is pushed by doctors. As the FDA has advised on the web many times,
drug companies pay off doctors to push their most expensive drugs. Billions of dollars in the last few years alone and that information comes direct to the FDA from the drug companies. There is a site that will even tell you if your own doctor is receiving their so called "gifts". Just check out: [link to projects.propublica.org]
and you can see for yourself.

doctors do this, they're full of shit

when ambien was name brand only, EVERY doctor in the country was obviously bound by some kind of oath to make sure to tell all of their patients "don't worry, this medication has absolutely no side effects!"

THE DAY it lost it's patent and became available in generic, doctor's across the country immediately took everyones ambien supply away from them because they knew the shit was extraordinarily dangerous. hardly anybody can get it now, and people who do ask for it get put on a drug seeker list.

not totally related to the tussionex story, i understand, but just an example of how the pharmaceutical industry is. when the drug reps come into the doctor offices with their briefcases, what do you think is in those briefcases? medicine? pamphlets? no. it's a giant tub of crisco that they use for when they take the doctors into the back room and fuck them in the ass. doctors say anal sex in unhealthy, but they're hypocrites. they take it in the ass just about every week.
