cheratussin and Weed


Most people who consume marijuana do so for its mood-altering and relaxing abilities. Weed gives people a high and allows them to relax. However, heavy consumption of weed can cause unwanted results. It can increase the anxiety and depression a person experiences, and it can interact with certain other drugs including cheratussin. It is important to remember that interactions do occur with all types of drugs, to a great or lesser extent and this article details the interactions of mixing cheratussin and Weed.


Mixing cheratussin and Weed


Cold medicines are a group of medications taken individually or in combination as a treatment for the symptoms of the common cold and similar conditions of the upper respiratory tract. The term encompasses a broad array of drugs, including analgesics, antihistamines and decongestants, among many others. It also includes drugs which are marketed as cough suppressants or antitussives, but their effectiveness in reducing cough symptoms is unclear or minimal.

While they have been used by 10% of American children in any given week, they are not recommended in Canada or the United States in children six years or younger because of lack of evidence showing effect and concerns of harm. In 2020, one version containing codeine and guaifenesin was the most commonly prescribed medication in the United States with more than 400 thousand prescriptions.

There are a number of different cough and cold medications, which may be used for various coughing symptoms. The commercially available products may include various combinations of any one or more of the following types of substances:

The efficacy of cough medication is questionable, particularly in children. A 2014 Cochrane review concluded that “There is no good evidence for or against the effectiveness of OTC medicines in acute cough”. Some cough medicines may be no more effective than placebos for acute coughs in adults, including coughs related to upper respiratory tract infections. The American College of Chest Physicians emphasizes that cough medicines are not designed to treat whooping cough, a cough that is caused by bacteria and can last for months. No over-the-counter cough medicines have been found to be effective in cases of pneumonia. They are not recommended in those who have COPD, chronic bronchitis, or the common cold. There is not enough evidence to make recommendations for those who have a cough in cancer.

A small study found honey may be a minimally effective cough treatment due to “well-established antioxidant and antimicrobial effects” and a tendency to soothe irritated tissue. A Cochrane review found there was weak evidence to recommend for or against the use of honey in children as a cough remedy. In light of these findings, the Cochrane study they found honey was better than no treatment, placebo, or diphenhydramine but not better than dextromethorphan for relieving cough symptoms. Honey’s use as a cough treatment has been linked on several occasions to infantile botulism and accordingly should not be used in children less than one year old.

Many alternative treatments are used to treat the common cold, though data on effectiveness is generally limited. A 2007 review states that, “alternative therapies (i.e., Echinacea, vitamin C, and zinc) are not recommended for treating common cold symptoms; however,…Vitamin C prophylaxis may modestly reduce the duration and severity of the common cold in the general population and may reduce the incidence of the illness in persons exposed to physical and environmental stresses.” A 2014 review also found insufficient evidence for Echinacea, where no clinical relevance was proven to provide benefit for treating the common cold, despite a weak benefit for positive trends. Similarly, a 2014 systematic review showed that garlic may prevent occurrences of the common cold but there was insufficient evidence of garlic in treating the common cold and studies reported adverse effects of a rash and odour. Therefore, more research need to be done to prove that the benefits out weight the harms.

A 2009 review found that the evidence supporting the effectiveness of zinc is mixed with respect to cough, and a 2011 Cochrane review concluded that zinc “administered within 24 hours of onset of symptoms reduces the duration and severity of the common cold in healthy people”. A 2003 review concluded: “Clinical trial data support the value of zinc in reducing the duration and severity of symptoms of the common cold when administered within 24 hours of the onset of common cold symptoms.” Zinc gel in the nose may lead to long-term or permanent loss of smell. The FDA therefore discourages its use.

Cough medicines, especially those containing dextromethorphan and codeine, are often abused as recreational drugs. Abuse may result in hallucinations, loss of consciousness and death. Many cough syrups can contain acetaminophen which will cause liver damage in recreational uses.

A number of accidental overdoses and well-documented adverse effects suggested caution in children. The FDA in 2015 warned that the use of codeine-containing cough medication in children may cause breathing problems. Cold syrup overdose has been linked to visual and auditory hallucinations as well as rapid involuntary jaw, tongue, and eye movements in children.

Decongestants are possibly harmful to people with high blood pressure or a heart disease because these substances can constrict the blood vessels.

Heroin was originally marketed as a cough suppressant in 1898. It was, at the time, believed to be a non-addictive alternative to other opiate-containing cough syrups. This was quickly realized not to be true as heroin readily breaks down into morphine in the body. Morphine was already known to be addictive.[citation needed]

Some brand names include: Benilyn, Sudafed, Robitussin and Vicks among others. Most contain a number of active ingredients.

Sudafed is a brand manufactured by McNeil Laboratories. The original formulation contains the active ingredient pseudoephedrine, but formulations without pseudoephedrine are also being sold under the brand.[citation needed] In 2016, it was one of the biggest selling branded over-the-counter medications sold in Great Britain, with sales of £34.4 million. The effectiveness of phenylephrine by mouth as a nasal decongestant is questionable.

Gee’s Linctus is a cough medicine which contains opium tincture. New Zealand in 2019 moved it to prescription only.

Coricidin, Coricidin D, or Coricidin HBP, is the brand name of a combination of dextromethorphan and chlorpheniramine maleate (an antihistamine). Varieties may also contain acetaminophen and guaifenesin.[citation needed]

Codral is a brand name manufactured by Johnson & Johnson and sold primarily in Australia and New Zealand. Codral is the highest-selling cold and flu medication in Australia.

In the United States, several billion dollars are spent on over-the-counter products per year.

According to The New York Times, at least eight mass poisonings have occurred as a result of counterfeit cough syrup in which medical-grade glycerin has been replaced with diethylene glycol, an inexpensive, yet toxic, glycerin substitute marketed for industrial use. In May 2007, 365 deaths were reported in Panama, which were associated with cough syrup containing diethylene glycol. In 2022, the deaths of 66 children in The Gambia were linked to four pediatric cough syrup medications that contained diethylene glycol and ethylene glycol.

In 2022, the US Food and Drug Administration issued a warning against cooking foods in cough syrup, after a video of someone preparing “NyQuil chicken”, sometimes also called “sleepy chicken”, became popular on social media. Cough syrup is designed to be stored at room temperature and its properties can change when it is heated, making it potentially deadly. Heated cough syrup can also vaporize, leading to inhalation hazards.


Research has found that anxiety is one of the leading symptoms created by marijuana in users, and that there is a correlation between cheratussin and Weed and an increase in anxiety.


Anyone mixing cheratussin and weed is likely to experience side effects. This happens with all medications whether weed or cheratussin is mixed with them. Side effects can be harmful when mixing cheratussin and weed. Doctors are likely to refuse a patient a cheratussin prescription if the individual is a weed smoker or user. Of course, this could be due to the lack of studies and research completed on the mixing of cheratussin and Weed.


Heavy, long-term weed use is harmful for people. It alters the brain’s functions and structure, and all pharmaceuticals and drugs including cheratussin are designed to have an impact on the brain. There is a misplaced belief that pharmaceuticals and medication work by treating only the parts of the body affected yet this is obviously not the case in terms of cheratussin. For example, simple painkiller medication does not heal the injury, it simply interrupts the brains functions to receive the pain cause by the injury. To say then that two drugs, cheratussin and Weed, dol not interact is wrong. There will always be an interaction between cheratussin and Weed in the brain11.J. D. Brown and A. G. Winterstein, Potential Adverse Drug Events and Drug–Drug Interactions with Medical and Consumer Cannabidiol (CBD) Use – PMC, PubMed Central (PMC).; Retrieved September 27, 2022, from


One of the milder side effects of mixing cheratussin and Weed is Scromiting. This condition, reportedly caused by mixing cheratussin and Weed, describes a marijuana-induced condition where the user experiences episodes of violent vomiting, which are often so severe and painful that they cause the person to scream. The medical term for Scromiting by mixing cheratussin and Weed is cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, or CHS.  For these reasons, some people choose to quit smoking weed.


It was first included in scientific reports in 2004. Since then, researchers have determined that Scromiting is the result of ongoing, long-term use of marijuana—particularly when the drug contains high levels of THC, marijuana’s main psychoactive ingredient. Some experts believe that the receptors in the gut become overstimulated by THC, thus causing the repeated cycles of vomiting.


In the long run, a person can become even more depressed. There is a belief that marijuana is all-natural and not harmful to a person’s health. This is not true and cheratussin and weed can cause health issues the more a person consumes it.


How does Weed effect the potency of cheratussin?


The way in which the body absorbs and process cheratussin may be affected by weed. Therefore, the potency of the cheratussin may be less effective. Marijuana inhibits the metabolization of cheratussin. Not having the right potency of cheratussin means a person may either have a delay in the relief of their underlying symptoms.


A person seeking cheratussin medication that uses weed should speak to their doctor. It is important the doctor knows about a patient’s weed use, so they can prescribe the right cheratussin medication and strength. Or depending on level of interactions they may opt to prescribe a totally different medication. It is important for the doctor to know about their patient’s marijuana use. Weed is being legalized around the US, so doctors should be open to speaking about a patient’s use of it.


Sideffects of cheratussin and Weed


Many individuals may not realize that there are side effects and consequences to mixing cheratussin and Weed such as:


  • Dizziness
  • Sluggishness
  • Drowsiness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Itching
  • Hives
  • Palpitations
  • Respiratory Depression
  • Cardiac Arrest
  • Coma
  • Seizures
  • Death


Interestingly, it is impossible to tell what effect mixing this substance with Weed will have on an individual due to their own unique genetic make up and tolerance. It is never advisable to mix cheratussin and Weed due to the chances of mild, moderate and severe side effects. If you are having an adverse reaction from mixing cheratussin and Weed it’s imperative that you head to your local emergency room. Even mixing a small amount of cheratussin and Weed is not recommended.


Taking cheratussin and Weed together


People who take cheratussin and Weed together will experience the effects of both substances. Technically, the specific effects and reactions that occur due to frequent use of cheratussin and weed depend on whether you consume more weed in relation to cheratussin or more cheratussin in relation to weed.


The use of significantly more weed and cheratussin will lead to sedation and lethargy, as well as the synergistic effects resulting from a mixture of the two medications.


People who take both weed and cheratussin may experience effects such as:


  • reduced motor reflexes from cheratussin and Weed
  • dizziness from Weed and cheratussin
  • nausea and vomiting due to cheratussin and Weed


Some people may also experience more euphoria, depression, irritability or all three. A combination of weed and cheratussin leads to significantly more lethargy which can easily tip over into coma, respiratory depression seizures and death.

Mixing weed and cheratussin


The primary effect of weed is influenced by an increase in the concentration of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, which is found in the spinal cord and brain stem, and by a reduction in its effect on neuronal transmitters. When weed is combined with cheratussin this primary effect is exaggerated, increasing the strain on the body with unpredictable results.


Weed and cheratussin affects dopamine levels in the brain, causing the body both mental and physical distress. Larger amounts of cheratussin and weed have a greater adverse effect yet leading medical recommendation is that smaller does of cheratussin can be just as harmful and there is no way of knowing exactly how cheratussin and weed is going to affect an individual before they take it.


Taking cheratussin and weed together


People who take cheratussin and weed together will experience the effects of both substances. The use of significantly more cheratussin with weed will lead to sedation and lethargy, as well as the synergistic effects resulting from a mixture of the two medications.


People who take both weed and cheratussin may experience effects such as:


  • reduced motor reflexes from cheratussin and weed
  • dizziness from weed and cheratussin
  • nausea and vomiting of the cheratussin


Some people may also experience more euphoria, depression, irritability or all three. A combination of weed and cheratussin leads to significantly more lethargy which can easily tip over into coma, respiratory depression seizures and death.

Weed Vs cheratussin


Taking cheratussin in sufficient quantities increases the risk of a heart failure. Additionally, people under the influence of cheratussin and weed may have difficulty forming new memories. With weed vs cheratussin in an individual’s system they become confused and do not understand their environment. Due to the synergistic properties of cheratussin when mixed with weed it can lead to confusion, anxiety, depression and other mental disorders. Chronic use of cheratussin and weed can lead to permanent changes in the brain22.G. Lafaye, L. Karila, L. Blecha and A. Benyamina, Cannabis, cannabinoids, and health – PMC, PubMed Central (PMC).; Retrieved September 27, 2022, from


cheratussin Vs Weed


Studies investigating the effects of drugs such as cheratussin and weed have shown that the potential for parasomnia (performing tasks in sleep) is dramatically increased when cheratussin and weed are combined. Severe and dangerous side effects can occur when medications are mixed in the system, and sleep disorders are a common side effect of taking weed and cheratussin together.


When a small to medium amount of weed is combined with cheratussin, sleep disorders such as sleep apnea can occur. According to the latest data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) most ER visits and hospitalizations caused by too much weed were associated with other substances such as cheratussin.


How long after taking cheratussin can I smoke weed or take edibles?


To avoid any residual toxicity it is advisable to wait until the cheratussin has totally cleared your system before taking weed, even in small quantities.


Overdose on cheratussin and weed


In the case of Overdose on cheratussin or if you are worried after mixing cheratussin and weed, call a first responder or proceed to the nearest Emergency Room immediately.


If you are worried about someone who has taken too much cheratussin or mixed weed with cheratussin then call a first responder or take them to get immediate medical help. The best place for you or someone you care about in the case of a medical emergency is under medical supervision. Be sure to tell the medical team that there is a mix of cheratussin and weed in their system.


Excessive Weed intake and result in scromiting, chs, and anxiety disorder.  It is advisable to quit vaping weed if you are feeling these symptoms.

Mixing cheratussin and weed and antidepressants


Weed users feeling depressed and anxious may be prescribed antidepressant medication. There are some antidepressant users who also use cheratussin and weed. These individuals may not realize that there are side effects and consequences to consuming both cheratussin, marijuana and a range of antidepressants.


Studies on weed, cheratussin and antidepressants is almost nil. The reason for so little information on the side effects of the two is mostly down to marijuana being illegal in most places – although a number of states in the United States have legalized the drug.


Self-medicating with Weed and cheratussin


A lot of people suffer from depression caused by weed and cheratussin. How many? According to Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), in any given year, it is estimated that nearly 16 million adults experience depression. Unfortunately, that number is likely to be wrong due to under reporting. Many people do not report suffering from depression because they do not want to be looked at as suffering from a mental illness. The stigmas around mental health continue and people do not want to be labeled as depressed.


Potential side effects from mixing cheratussin and weed


Quitting weed to take cheratussin


Medical professionals say an individual prescribed or taking cheratussin should not stop using weed cold turkey.  Withdrawal symptoms can be significant. Heavy pot users should especially avoid going cold turkey. The side effects of withdrawal from weed include anxiety, irritability, loss of sleep, change of appetite, and depression by quitting weed cold turkey and starting to take cheratussin.


A person beginning to use cheratussin should cut back on weed slowly. While reducing the amount of weed use, combine it with mindfulness techniques and/or yoga. Experts stress that non-medication can greatly improve a person’s mood.


Weed and cheratussin can affect a person in various ways. Different types of marijuana produce different side effects. Side effects of weed and cheratussin may include:


  • loss of motor skills
  • poor or lack of coordination
  • lowered blood pressure
  • short-term memory loss
  • increased heart rate
  • increased blood pressure
  • anxiety
  • paranoia
  • increased energy
  • increased motivation


Mixing cheratussin and weed can also produce hallucinations in users. This makes marijuana a hallucinogenic for some users. Weed creates different side effects in different people, making it a very potent drug. Now, mixing cheratussin or other mental health drugs with weed can cause even more unwanted side effects.


Mixing drugs and weed conclusion


Long-term weed use can make depression and anxiety worse. In addition, using marijuana can prevent cheratussin from working to their full potential33.J. D. Brown and A. G. Winterstein, Potential Adverse Drug Events and Drug–Drug Interactions with Medical and Consumer Cannabidiol (CBD) Use – PMC, PubMed Central (PMC).; Retrieved September 27, 2022, from Weed consumption should be reduced gradually to get the most out of prescription medication. Marijuana is a drug and it is harmful to individual’s long-term health. Weed has many side effects and the consequences are different to each person who uses it, especially when mixed with cheratussin.
