 5  severe cough from silent reflux With doctor's permission, I only take this medicine on an as needed basis at bedtime. I take less than the 5 ml dosage. For me it is the only med that lets me sleep without the non-stop coughing. (Look up "silent reflux") M 84 2 years
5 ml 1X AN
 3  Bronchitis, Sinus Infection Horrible migraines Worked like a charm with the cough, however when I was coming down off the drug I would get horrible migraines. If you are sensitive to hydrocodone I would not recommend this for you. F 26 3 days
 3  Whooping Cough Disorientation, extreme drowsiness, vomiting. Despite the vomiting, this drug worked wonders for me. I went from coughing for ten hours straight with shortness of breath to actually getting a good night's sleep. Would use again. F 30 1 days

 5  Upper respiratory & onset pneumonia Sleepiness , euphoria, itchiness I had a horrible infection in my lungs , the coughing fits would leave me lightheaded or throwing up. This is the only medication that helped. Would not recommend taking more then prescribed dosage. Can make side effects worse . Works good on short term basis. F 25 4 days
 2  Whooping Cough Extreme confusion, nausea, headache, throbbing pain in stomach, dizziness. This medicine was very dangerous to me, I had to wait 48 hrs for it to be completely leave my system but it wasnt for 72 hrs that the side effects went away. It felt like I was drunk and with an extreme hangover. F 40 2 days
 5  Uncontrollable cough No side effects-stopped my cough immediately I have had an uncontrollable cough for over a month. Had every test done to determine the cause, but found nothing. I was driving anyone around me crazy with this cough. This is the only cough syrup that stopped it. First night of sleep in a long time F 62 6 days
 2  Bronchitis Chest tightness, anxiety, hard to breathe, chills/shivering teeth chattering for several minutes, nausea. I have take other hydro cough syrups before and had no issues. This one made me feel horrible, I took a dose, felt fine, better, then 4 hours later as directed took another does. A couple hours later I woke up in middle of night in panic feeling terrible. I wondered if it was just a panic attack which I have had a couple in my lifetime. But after reading what I have here and talking to my doc I think it was a reaction to the Hycodan. It worked great for cough but it was horrible was afraid I was having heart attack or something. F 47 2 days

 1  Awful cough Nausea, dysphoria, panic attack, inability to sleep, rapid heart rate, headache. I have taken codeine cough syrup my entire life. However, I will never take another drop of this. I believe the homatropine (that is now added to discourage abuse) made me very, very ill. I took one teaspoon in the afternoon and vomited twice and had a terrible headache, felt very anxious. At bedtime I took less than half a teaspoon to be conservative. Could not sleep at all, mind very wired. Drifted off lightly, then woke at two a.m. with pounding heart. Had the worst emotional feelings in a long time. Extreme dread and detachment. In my opinion, they have ruined a really great medicine for me in order to prevent misuse and abuse. It's sad because it stops a cough dead in its tracks. F 38 1 days

 5  chest cold / virus I was given hycodan many years ago and have loved it ever since for my coughs due to colds / influenza. I cannot take OTC meds as they have decongestants in them which make me very agitated and anxious and the effect lasts for days. I can handle the dopey effects of hycodan. My big complaint - ITCHING! I don't itch with reg codein. So although I am not coughing I am up all night scratching! Take benadril to counter this effect - but only at night as you will get very drowsy. If you are in Canada you can get 'Tylenol #1' (aceteminaphin with 8mg codein) OTC (ask the pharmacist) and this also works GREAT for coughs. Codien is a resperatory suppressant - that is why it calms your cough. F 43 2 days
