Guaifenesin-DM NR Liquid (Guaifenesin / Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) - Summary



Guaifenesin-DM NR Liquid is a clear yellow liquid with a raspberry flavor.
Each 5 mL (1 teaspoonful) contains:
Guaifenesin 100 mg.
Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide 10 mg.

GUAIFENESIN-DM NR LIQUID (Guaifenesin/Dextromethorphan) is indicated for the following:

Temporarily relieves cough due to minor throat and bronchial irritation as may occur with the common cold or inhaled irritants. Calms the cough control center and relieves coughing. Helps loosen phlegm (mucus) and thin bronchial secretions to rid the bronchial passageways of bothersome mucus, drain bronchial tubes, and make coughs more productive.

Published Studies Related to Guaifenesin-DM NR Liquid (Guaifenesin / Dextromethorphan)

Simultaneous determination of dextromethorphan, dextrorphan, and guaifenesin in human plasma using semi-automated liquid/liquid extraction and gradient liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry. [2007.01.17]
A method for the simultaneous determination of dextromethorphan (DEX), dextrorphan (DET), and guaifenesin (GG) in human plasma was developed, validated, and applied to determine plasma concentrations of these compounds in samples from six clinical pharmacokinetic (PK) studies... Pharmacokinetic data are also provided to illustrate improvements in systemic drug and metabolite concentration-time profiles that were achieved by formulation optimization.

Clinical Trials Related to Guaifenesin-DM NR Liquid (Guaifenesin / Dextromethorphan)

Placebo Controlled Trial of Dextromethorphan in Rett Syndrome [Recruiting]
Dr. Sakkubai Naidu, Principal Investigator, is initiating a double blinded placebo controlled clinical drug trial using dextromethorphan (DM) in Rett Syndrome (RTT), at the Pediatric Clinical Research Unit (PCRU) of the Johns Hopkins Hospital/Kennedy Krieger Institute. Funding Source- FDA OOPD and the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR). It has been shown that receptors for a certain brain chemical called glutamate, in particular the NMDA type, are increased in the brain of young RTT patients (<10 years of age). This chemical and its receptors, when in excess, cause harmful over-stimulation of nerve cells in the brain, contributing in part to the seizures, behavioral problems, and learning disabilities in RTT. The investigators propose to initiate a specific treatment using DM to counter/block the effects of this brain chemical and its excessive receptors to improve the ill effects of increased glutamate/NMDA receptors, because of DM's identified ability to block NMDA receptors. DM is available for human consumption. Infants and children with respiratory infections and cough, as well as non-ketotic hyperglycinemia, are treated with DM, which has been well tolerated.

Combined Therapy of Methadone and Dextromethrophan [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to determine the pharmacological effects and outcomes of DM therapy with this add-on study. And to determine the immunological changes between the baseline and the end point of the study.
