Patient :I have the flu. Last night in the middle of the night I took my cough medication. Tussionex. I did not have a spoon so I just used the little cap. Wound up spitting half of it back into the bottle because I didn't want to take too much. can this reinfect me or cause any issues? my insurance did not cover this so it cost me $50 and I don't want to waste it if I don't have to but I don't want to reinfect myself in any way. I have the flu and I'm very miserable. Please help.
