TUSSIGON is also contraindicated in patients with:

TUSSIGON contains hydrocodone, a Schedule II controlled substance. As an opioid, TUSSIGON exposes users to the risks of addiction, abuse, and misuse which can lead to overdose and death

Although the risk of addiction in any individual is unknown, it can occur in patients appropriately prescribed TUSSIGON. Addiction can occur at recommended dosages and if the drug is misused or abused. Risks are increased in patients with a personal or family history of substance abuse (including drug or alcohol abuse or addiction) or mental illness (e.g., major depression).

Opioids are sought by drug abusers and people with addiction disorders and are subject to criminal diversion. Consider these risks when prescribing or dispensing TUSSIGON. Strategies to reduce these risks include prescribing the drug in the smallest appropriate quantity and advising the patient on the proper disposal of unused drug . Contact local state professional licensing board or state controlled substances authority for information on how to prevent and detect abuse or diversion of this product.

The following serious adverse events are described, or described in greater detail, in other sections:

The following adverse reactions have been identified during clinical studies, in the literature, or during post-approval use of hydrocodone and/or homatropine. Because these reactions may be reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.

The most common adverse reactions to TUSSIGON include: Sedation (somnolence, mental clouding, lethargy), impaired mental and physical performance, lightheadedness, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, and constipation.
