Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, and other gastrointestinal disorders. Dextromethorphan can cause excitation of the central nervous system.
Treatment: gastric lavage, reception of activated charcoal, symptomatic therapy.
Zedex can be prescribed concurrently with other drugs used in the treatment of bronchopulmonary diseases. Zedex is not prescribed concomitantly with antitussive agents (including those containing codeine).
Bromhexine, which is part of Zedex, promotes the penetration of antibiotics (erythromycin, cephalexin, oxytracycline, ampicillin, amoxicillin) into the lung tissue, but its combined use with salicylates, phenylbutazone and oxyphenbutazone can cause severe irritation of the gastric mucosa. Alcohol, which is part of the syrup, can change the effect of other medicines.
Because the drug includes dextromethorphan, it is contraindicated simultaneous use with MAO inhibitors (possibly action on the central nervous system and pronounced respiratory depression), amiodarone (may inhibit the metabolism of dextromethorphan in the liver and increase its toxicity), antidepressants serotonin reuptake inhibitors (fluoxetine, paroxetine). Dextromethorphan can potentiate the analgesic effect of opioids.
