Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You should avoid that as it causes palpitation and high blood pressure.

YOu can take Mucinex only ( guaifenesin) which is safe.

Prescription codeine cough syrup ( cheratussin ac) also can be considered.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
