Benylin is a popular and widely trusted cough brand that has been around since the 1970s. It is one of Great Britain’s top selling over-the-counter (OTC) cough brands and is owned exclusively by Johnson & Johnson who produce a wide variety of cough, flu and cold medications. Their products are targeted mainly at managing and controlling the various symptoms associated with cough, cold and flu.
There are different kinds of coughs, thus, Benylin has different medicines that proffer solution to every kind. Due to its well-adapted combination of active ingredients, it’s able to tackle the specific cough type for which it is used.
Benylin tackles dry cough through dextromethorphan – a powerful suppressant which defeats the mechanism causing the cough. Chesty cough is addressed via guaifenesin, which is basically an expectorant that loosens the thick mucus layer by increasing fluid production, thereby making coughs more productive.
Benylin products also contain other active ingredients including glycerol, pseudoephedrine, paracetamol, codeine, phenylephrine, diphenhydramine and pseudoephedrine, which work together to alleviate the pain and nasal congestion (clogging of the nostrils or chest by mucus) associated with cough and flu. Thus Benylin is the go-to remedy for all kinds of coughs, cold and flu. Their products range from syrup to tablets and are available here at Chemist-4-U.
