BENADRYL Chesty Forte provides fast, non drowsy relief of heavy chesty coughs
Cough medicines are drugs used in those with coughing and related conditions. It is not known whether over-the-counter cough medications reduce coughing
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 five types of substances:
Expectorants are substances claimed to make coughing easier while enhancing the production of mucus and phlegm. Two examples are acetylcysteine and guaifenesin
Antitussives, or cough suppressants, are substances which suppress the coughing itself. Examples are codeine, pholcodine, dextromethorphan, noscapine, and butamirate
Antihistamines may produce mild sedation and reduce other associated symptoms, like a runny nose and watery eyes; one example is diphenhydramine
Decongestants relieve nasal congestion. One example is ephedrine
Antipyretics are substances that reduce fever. One example is paracetamol.
Also employed are various substances supposed to soften the coughing, like honey or sugar syrup.
