DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
A dosing spoon is provided with the 4 oz (115 mL) packaged product. So one side of the spoon is for a 2.5 mL dose. The other side of the spoon is for a 5 mL dose. Fill to level the side of the spoon for the dose that has been prescribed. But do not overfill. Rinse with water after each use.
For prescriptions where a dosing spoon is not provided, a pharmacist can provide an appropriate measuring device and can provide instructions for measuring the correct dose. So a household teaspoon is not an accurate measuring device and could lead to over dosage.
So each 5 mL of TUSSIONEX Penn kinetic Extended-Release so Suspension contains hydrocodone polistirex equivalent to 10 mg hydrocodone bitartrate, and chlorpheniramine polistirex but equivalent to 8 mg chlorpheniramine maleate. By so we should shake well before using. But rinse the measuring device with water after each use.
