What is Benylin Dry Cough Blackcurrant?

Benylin Dry Cough Blackcurrant is a syrup that is a form of treatment for dry coughs which are caused by an allergic reaction, common cold, or flu. The active ingredients are glycerol and sucrose.


How does this cough syrup clear up a cough?

This syrup works by blocking the receptors in the respiratory tract responsible for a dry cough. This syrup will also help to treat a sore throat, as it will soothe the irritation in the throat.


What is a dry cough?

A dry cough is usually caused by a cold or the flu, but can also be caused by an allergy. A dry cough will usually clear up after 2-3 weeks but can last longer. If you suffer from a long-term dry cough, then it is known as a persistent cough and will require a different form of treatment. 


Who is Benylin Dry Cough suitable for?

It is suitable for adults and children aged 1 and above. It is not suitable for anyone who is allergic to any of the ingredients contained in the syrup.


Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use Benylin Dry Cough syrup?

Yes, it is safe to use for someone who is either pregnant or breastfeeding.


How should I use it?

For adults, and children over the age of 5, take two 5ml spoonfuls 3-4 times a day. For children under the age of 5, only have one spoonful.


Are there any side effects?

The most likely cause of any side effect will be an allergic reaction. If you do notice a side effect, then contact your doctor as soon as possible. If you notice a side effect, then you can record it using the MHRA's Yellow Card Scheme. For more information, see the Yellow Card website.


Do I need a prescription to buy?

No, you do not need a prescription.

Best Medicines for Dry, Chesty, Tickly or Mucus Coughs

Having a cough is never a good thing. A cough can often lead to other problems, such as a sore throat. Dealing with a cough can be difficult when there are different types of a cough and knowing which one you are suffering from can make all the difference when it comes to treating it.

Can Simple Linctus Paediatric be taken with Benylin Dry Cough? My daughter is 18 months old.

Benylin dry cough for children contains Glycerol and Sucrose. I therefore wouldn't recommend the use of Simple Linctus paediatric as they are effectively the same product.
