Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.

Hydromet is a brand name for a prescription cough syrup that contains the antimuscarinic homatropine and the narcotic hydrocodone bitartrate.

The medication can induce a state of anxiety when you normally would not feel anxious.

You can safely take OTC Robitussin DM for cough.

Also do saline gargles and steam inhalation.

You should do nasal saline spray.

Hydrate yourself with warm liquids.

And use a humidifier in your room.
