Customer Question

Robitussin DM contains guafenesin & dextromethorphan.

They are different compounds from Ibuprofen & Aspirin.

Allergy to ibuprofen & aspirin should not cause allergy to Robitussin DM.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.

Im just a little scared to take it. I have some chest congestion and need to take an expectorant. I experiance Anaphylaxis if I do take anything with any form of Aspirin or Ibuprofen. If you are absolutely sure I will accept and take the medicine.
