Tussionex review by 38 year old female patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Moderate Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   Mycoplasma bronchitis
Dosage & duration:   1 tsp (dosage frequency: every 12 hours) for the period of 1 week
Other conditions:   None
Other drugs taken:   None
Reported Results
Benefits:   Suppression of cough
Side effects:   Drowsiness, dizziness, dream-like state, very mild haluccinations, weakness in arms
Comments:   I was battling a severe, deep, incessant cough, and was diagnosed with mycoplasma bronchitis, probably contracted from my spouse who had walking pneumonia. I couldn’t go for more than 2 minutes without coughing, and couldn’t sleep through the night. After suffering for well over a week, I finally was prescribed Tussionex (my spouse was too), and it was the most amazing relief – it suppressed the cough, and I could finally sleep. Due to the side effects, I haven’t taken it for any common colds or flus, but it was worthwhile for my severe cough.
