This is Dr. DAvid
Hydromet syrup contains hydrocodone/homatropine
it is also sold under the names of Hydocan.
Virtussin contains CODEINE and GUAIFENESIN
yes, they still sell hydrocodone and homatropine for cough. the new prescription laws will not affect this
your doctor can still prescribe to you Hydromet
just ask your doctor to do this
let me know if you have questions.
in 2014, hydrocodone was turned into a schedule II narcotic
which means it can't have refills.
so you have to see a doctor each time you need a refill.
codeine and guaifenesin can get refills for you without seeing a doctor.
so if you are ok seeing a doctor each month for refills, then your nurse practitioner can still prescribe to you Hydromet syrup
does this make sense?
let me know if you have other questions.
