Customer Question
The pharmacist advised us...

The pharmacist advised us that my husband should not take Robitussin

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

For his cough because it interacts with other medicines he takes. i cannot find anything on line about this and his Dr says talk to the pharmacist. The other medicines he's on are Alendronate (10MG daily); Lisonopril (5MG daily); baby aspirin; Dorzolamide eye drops (3xdaily); Pyridostigmine (60 MG daily); Prednisone (5MG daily); Calcium 600MG (daily); B12 (500MG daily); Atorvastatin (40 MG daily); lorazepam (.5MG at night); Latanoprost eye drop 1xdaily). Please advise.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He has Myasthenia Gravis, Heart stents and Hashimoto disease.

Robitussin (dextromethorphan) does not interact with the medication you have listed. I have checked them with drug interaction software.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
