Tussionex is the brand name for the combination of chlorpheniramine and hydrocodone, used to treat runny or stuffy nose, sneezing and cough due to cold or flu. Chlorpheniramine is an antihistamine that reduces the natural chemical histamine produced by the body. Histamine can cause itching, sneezing, runny nose and watery eyes. Hydrocodone is a narcotic cough suppressant which can be habit-forming, leading to dependence and addiction. Hydrocodone, a semi-synthetic opioid, relieves pain by binding to the opioid receptor sites in the brain and spinal cord. Because hydrocodone can be habit forming, it can lead to both physical and psychological dependence. The normal dose for adults and children over 12 is 5 mL, or 1 teaspoonful every 12 hours. For children between the ages of 6 and 11, the normal dose is 2.5 mL, or ½ teaspoonful every 12 hours. Tussionex should not be used in children younger than 6.
Tussionex should be taken exactly as prescribed by a doctor. Taking it in larger amounts or for a longer period of time can result in a life-threatening overdose or addiction. The liquid medication should be carefully measured with a marked measuring device, not a household spoon. Because hydrocodone can be habit-forming, Tussionex should be used only by the person it is prescribed for. The FDA recommends keeping Tussionex in a secure place where others cannot get at it.
Side effects associated with Tussionex include drowsiness, dizziness, anxiety, mood changes, trouble concentrating, blurred vision, constipation, dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, sweating, loss of appetite, itching or rash. Allergic reaction to Tussionex can be serious and includes these possible symptoms: hives, difficult breathing or swelling of the lips, tongue, face or throat. Patients are advised to seek medical help immediately if they experience any of the more serious side effects including chest tightness, weak or shallow breathing, confusion, hallucinations, unusual behavior or problems with urination.
An overdose of Tussionex can be fatal, especially in children. Taking too much of the prescription medication can cause serious problems including cold and clammy skin, flushing, dry mouth, large pupils, nausea, vomiting, seizures, shallow breathing, severe dizziness or drowsiness, slowed heart rate, lightheadedness, blue colored skin or fainting. Taking alcohol with Tussionex can cause dizziness and drowsiness and should be avoided. The drug’s labeling information warns that users should take extra care when performing tasks that require alertness because some of the side effects can impair thinking and reaction time. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued an alert in regard to the safe use of Tussionex. The agency said it received reports of “life-threatening adverse events and deaths in patients, including children.” The reports indicated that some health care providers were prescribing the drug to patients younger than 6.
with an opiate detox treatment expert.
Waismann Method is widely recognized as the most effective and safest sedation detox available for several reasons. The main reason is that patients’ safety is always a priority. Our medical care is comprehensive, individualized, and, more importantly, responsible. We don’t believe in promises of overnight miracles. Although believing that anyone can cure you of opioid use disorder overnight might sound attractive, it is an unrealistic and dangerous promise used by less than reputable programs to attract more patients. Instead, patients receive the care and inpatient detoxification necessary for a safe and controlled withdrawal under medical supervision. This allows patients to begin their journey to recovery with a solid foundation and a better chance of success.
Our focus on safety, individualized care, and responsibility has kept us at the forefront of advanced opioid detoxification. Our quadruple board-certified anesthesiologist performs every detoxification under sedation in a private ICU room. The patient usually spends only 3-days in the hospital before being discharged to our exclusive post-detox recovery center. They receive additional supportive care designed to help them achieve essential stability to face the world confidently. Our successful outcomes result from our commitment to quality care and our dedication to helping our patients live happy and healthy lives.
The internet has become a breeding ground for false information, especially true for medical claims from other countries. It is crucial to verify the credibility of these claims before taking them at face value. When researching a reputable medical detox program, look for licensed and accredited medical professionals from well-known institutions. This will help to ensure that the information you are receiving is accurate and reliable. Don’t let false claims of overnight miracles lead you astray – take the time to verify their credibility and credentials before making any decisions.
In today’s world of increasingly advanced technology and medical science, it can be easy to forget that not all doctors are as reliable or trustworthy as we might hope. At the same time, most physicians are reputable and well-trained experts dedicated to helping their patients, but some so-called “gypsy doctors” lack proper licensing, insurance, or professional affiliations. These doctors operate without fear of censure or consequence, freely misleading patients to earn a more significant profit.
While it is tempting to believe that such unscrupulous behavior is rare in the medical field, sadly, this is simply not the case. These gypsy doctors take advantage of vulnerable individuals seeking help for their health, from routine checkups and general care to highly specialized procedures and operations. To protect ourselves from these dishonest actors masquerading as medical professionals, we must stay informed about the warning signs that can distinguish legitimate doctors from scam artists.
When choosing a treatment center, we highly recommend checking licenses, certifications, and long-term reputation in the U.S.; without these items, there are more opportunities for false hope, leading to disappointment, financial loss, and bodily harm.
Waismann Method is considered the most thorough and safe sedation detox available worldwide.
We are proud to have Michael H. Lowenstein, M.D. as our medical director for over two decades. Dr. Lowenstein is a quadruple board-certified anesthesiologist and is currently the most experienced doctor in sedation-assisted detox. Although other non-licensed doctors try to affiliate their similar names to our success, Waismann Method® is not affiliated with clinics or doctors elsewhere. We have always been at the forefront of medical innovation and set quality care standards. Dr. Lowenstein’s experience and expertise are unmatched, and we are honored to have him as a part of our team. Thanks to him, we have helped thousands of people overcome addiction and start new lives.
It is widely acknowledged that an effective doctor-patient relationship is crucial to responsible medicine. According to Dr. Lowenstein, this relationship must be grounded in trust, based on the ethical principle that places the patient’s welfare above self-interest. To build this trusting relationship, both parties need to be realistic about expectations, abilities, and limitations – especially those of the treating physician.
To achieve this level of honesty and accountability, a physician must possess certain vital qualities: humility, honesty, and selflessness. These qualities allow doctors to communicate openly and honestly with their patients, putting their well-being above their interests. By fostering an environment of trust and collaboration between themselves and their patients, responsible doctors can deliver effective treatment outcomes that are ultimately in the best interests of all involved.
Despite being the premier rapid detox center globally, Waismann Method® offers much more than just rapid detox. Our approach’s core is a commitment to individualized care that fully meets each patient’s unique needs and clinical conditions. We work closely with patients and their doctors to create customized treatment protocols that consider medical history, current health status, and lifestyle preferences to achieve this goal. Additionally, our medical professionals thoroughly evaluate each patient before beginning the detox process, allowing us to identify potential risks and harms and tailor our approach accordingly. This comprehensive yet personalized approach sets Waismann Method® apart from other rapid detox centers and makes us the best choice for anyone seeking safe and effective opioid detoxification.
Despite the many claims of “overnight cures” and “miraculous reversal of time” in the health care industry, our experts recognize that reversing the effects of opioid use can be a complex and lengthy process for some patients. For those who have been using opioids for a long time or whose nervous system has been significantly impacted by these drugs, it is impossible to rapidly identify and reverse dysregulations in the body or restore function to pre-opioid use disorder states.
Nevertheless, we have helped thousands of patients achieve an opioid-free state and begin reversing the effects of chronic opioid use on their bodies. Our health care professionals work to alleviate pain and promote physical healing through targeted treatments and other supportive measures, helping patients gradually restore their nervous systems to regain health and vitality. So if you are struggling with opioid addiction, don’t hesitate to turn to our team for help. We can support you every step of your path toward recovery.
In recent years, there has been an increasing focus on personalized medicine in healthcare. This approach to medical treatment takes into account a patient’s unique characteristics, such as their genetic profile, history, and current health status. Doctors can tailor treatments to each patient by considering these factors, providing the most effective care possible. In many cases, personalized medicine can mean life and death. As our understanding of genetics and disease continues to improve, the potential for personalized medicine to transform healthcare is limitless.
Patients fly from all over the world to our exclusive Southern California location. Upon arrival, a representative greets them at the airport, where their path to recovery begins. We have become a worldwide leader in medically assisted opioid treatment by offering our services exclusively in one single location. Furthermore, spending two to three days (or whatever time is medically indicated) in a full-service JACHO-accredited hospital and recovering for a few days in a private recovery center provides patients with the time and level of care from a responsible, effective treatment program.
The Waismann Method has been operating exclusively in California for 24 years; we have put all our effort into one sing location worldwide. Our experience has taught us that it’s best to do a few things well rather than spread ourselves thin. It is difficult to replicate our medical director’s quadruple board certifications, experience in treating thousands of patients for a quarter of a decade, and specialized recovery center (Domus Retreat). Because of that commitment, we’ve built a reputation of excellence as well as a solid commitment to our patients and employees. We’re proud to be based here and look forward to continuing to serve patients from all over the world for many years to come.
