This drug effectively calms a cough and relieves congestion. I have been using it from asthma and sinus symptoms off and on for some time and it always does the trick. One must be careful to avoid addiction though.

I was diagnosed with sinusitis and bronchitis. I was coughing all night for several nights before the doctor prescribed Tussionex. Slept great every night while on it. I only took two doses on the weekend while off of work... then narrowed it down to only at night. I found this quite effective and I wasn't drowsy @ all. I had to pay $60 with insurance but it was well worth it. Especially using only at night when the cough is the worst. Then I could get the most out of my prescription.

I have a history of chronic bronchitis. My doctor has prescribed this each allergy season for almost 20 years, and I swear by it. Tussionex is the only cough medicine that works, and it tastes good too.

I have asthma, and when I catch a cold it turns into bronchitis and then pneumonia. this medicine allows me to rest better, breathe deeper, and relaxes the cough reflex. I do not really get very drowsy with this med, unless I am running a fever. My doctor has been fully aware of my medical condition, and does not hesitate to prescribe this for me. Taken as directed, it is very effective.

My bronchitis turned into condition-induced asthma, and it was impossible to sleep without coughing to the point of choking and gasping at times. This not only stopped the cough, but allowed my lungs to rest and heal, and let me get some much needed sleep. I have two very young children, however, so I have to be careful and make sure my hubby is fully aware that I am about to be "out of it" when I take it so he can keep a watchful eye on the kids.
