This medication is used for temporary relief of coughs without phlegm that are caused by certain infections of the air passages (e.g., bronchitis, sinusitis, common cold). This product is generally not used for an ongoing cough from smoking or long-term breathing problems (e.g., chronic bronchitis, emphysema), unless directed by your doctor. This product contains two medicines, guaifenesin and hydrocodone. Guaifenesin is called an expectorant. It works by making phlegm in the breathing tubes more fluid. This helps the cough to clear phlegm better. Hydrocodone is a narcotic cough suppressant that works by decreasing the feeling of needing to cough.

Cough-and-cold products have not been shown to be safe or effective in children younger than 6 years. Therefore, this product is not recommended to treat cold symptoms in children younger than 6 years. Some products (including some long-acting tablets/capsules) are not recommended for use in children younger than 12 years. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details about using your product safely.
