Coughing is the body's way of responding to an irritation or infection in the upper respiratory tract, especially the throat. In more severe infections, it is often an automatic response that the sufferer has little or no control over.Cough can become really troublesome, both as an annoyance and a practical issue, as this problem persists.
While coughing is an essential mechanism for the body to protect from choking and help to clear the airways, it can progress to becoming a persistent and mostly unnecessary issue, even a debilitating problem.
In fact, non-stop, unproductive coughing can cause further aggravation or even damage to the already sensitive throat area and airways. In some cases, the best way to prevent unwanted coughing and throat irritation may be to use a cough syrup.
Codeine linctus syrup is best used for the relief from symptoms of dry, irritating coughs. Codeine 15mg/5ml Linctus Syrup is a specially designed medical formula designed to give a two pronged attack against dry coughs.
It's one of the best forms of dry cough syrup available without a prescription in the UK.
The main active ingredient in codeine linctus syrup is codeine phosphate. Codeine phosphate is an opiate and mild relative of morphine, a commonly used pain killer. When it is present in a dry cough syrup, codeine phosphate's main role is as an antitussive agent.
Antitussive medications act by soothing the throat and reducing the body's impulse to cough, especially when the repetitive cough is excessive and serves no functional purpose.
Coughing, along with the underlying problem, can leave you with a dry, itchy throat. This can lead to a vicious circle whereby your body's natural defense system gradually worsens your condition.
The linctus syrup soothes symptoms and relieves your throat, helping to allow your throat to repair itself.
You should consult your doctor before taking this medication, and check that you are not allergic to any ingredients within it. Remember that codeine taken over a period of time can be habit forming.
If you find yourself needing to use codeine linctus syrup for a prolonged period, consult your doctor for advice.
