Cocorex TM ,Taj Pharmaceuticals Limited., India (Chlorpheniramine, Codeine), Codeine Phosphate IP

Indication And Uses
Cocorex is used to relieve mild to moderate pain. It is also used, usually in combination with other medications, to reduce coughing. Combination products that contain Cocorex and promethazine should not be used in children younger than 16 years of age. Cocorex will help relieve symptoms but will not treat the cause of symptoms or speed recovery. Cocorex belongs to a class of medications called opiate (narcotic) analgesics and to a class of medications called antitussives. When Cocorex is used to treat pain, it works by changing the way the body senses pain. When Cocorex is used to reduce coughing, it works by decreasing the activity in the part of the brain that causes coughing.

Cocorex is also available in combination with acetaminophen (Capital and Cocorex, Tylenol with Cocorex); aspirin; and in many cough and cold medications.
This monograph only includes information about the use of Cocorex. If you are taking a Cocorex combination product, be sure to read information about all the ingredients in the product you are taking and ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Cocorex (alone or in combination with other medications) comes as a tablet, a capsule, and a solution (liquid) to take by mouth. It is usually taken every 4 to 6 hours as needed. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take Cocorex exactly as directed.

Cocorex can be habit-forming. Do not take a larger dose, take it more often, or take it for a longer period of time than prescribed by your doctor.
