What is Benylin Chesty Coughs?

Benylin Chesty Coughs is a cough medicine which helps to loosen mucus in the chest, making it easier to cough up. If you’re struggling with an annoying chesty cough, Benylin Chesty Coughs can provide relief and help you to breathe easy again so you can get on with your normal routine.


What is a chesty cough?

A chesty cough is what we call a cough that happens when your body produces mucus, or phlegm, in order to help to clear unwanted particles, such as dust or bacteria, your airways. Your body wants to move the excess phlegm away from your chest, which is what causes a chesty cough.


How does Benylin Chesty Coughs work to relieve my cough?

Benylin Chesty Coughs medicine contains the active ingredient diphenhydramine, which works as an antihistamine. This means that it helps to relieve coughing and secretions in your nose and chest which cause coughing. This product also contains levomenthol, which helps to clear congestion so you can breathe more easily.


How to use this cough medicine.

To treat a chesty cough, simply take two 5ml spoonfuls of Benylin Chesty Coughs medicine, four times a day. Do not take more than 4 doses of this medicine in any 24-hour period.


Why do I need to answer questions to buy this product?

You do not need a prescription for Benylin Chesty Coughs, however, you will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire by your Chemist-4-U pharmacist before we can take your order. This includes some simple questions that all pharmacies legally are required to ask before supplying this kind of product. This helps our pharmacy team to be sure that this product is the best choice for you.


When should Benylin Chesty Coughs not be used?

Benylin Chesty Coughs is not suitable for children under the age of 12. Do not use this product if you are allergic to any of the listed ingredients.

Benylin Chesty Coughs can make you feel drowsy or dizzy. Do not attempt to drive or operate tools or machinery if you are affected by this product.

If you have any preexisting condition and are using medication for it, speak to a doctor or pharmacist, as the ingredients in the medication and this Benylin Chesty Cough Medicine could interfere with each other.
