As with all narcotics, TUSSIONEX (hydrocodone and chlorpheniramine) Pennkinetic Extended-Release Suspension may produce marked drowsiness and impair the mental and/or physical abilities required for the performance of potentially hazardous tasks such as driving a car or operating machinery; patients should be cautioned accordingly. TUSSIONEX (hydrocodone and chlorpheniramine) Pennkinetic Extended-Release Suspension must not be diluted with fluids or mixed with other drugs as this may alter the resin-binding and change the absorption rate, possibly increasing the toxicity.
Patients should be advised to measure TUSSIONEX (hydrocodone and chlorpheniramine) Pennkinetic Extended-Release Suspension with an accurate measuring device. A household teaspoon is not an accurate measuring device and could lead to overdosage, especially when a half a teaspoon is measured. A pharmacist can recommend an appropriate measuring device and can provide instructions for measuring the correct dose.
Shake well before using.
Keep out of the reach of children.
