It works as a cough suppressant, reducing the urge to cough by easing the irritation or tickling sensation in your throat.
By keeping you from coughing, codeine linctus gives your throat the chance to heal, helping to ease your cough in the long run as well as short term.
Codeine linctus contains 15mg of the active ingredient codeine phosphate in every 5ml and is available in regular and sugar-free formulas.
What are dry and tickly coughs?
Dry coughs, which are also known as tickly coughs, are non-productive, meaning that they’re the type of cough that doesn’t produce any mucous.
When you have a dry cough, you’ll usually experience a tickly, uncomfortable feeling in the back of your throat which causes your cough.
This feeling is where the tickly cough gets its name, and it happens because the back of your throat is irritated.
This irritation can have lots of different causes, including a cold, the flu, a sore throat, or other upper respiratory tract infections.
Codeine linctus is an ideal remedy for dry coughs, as it keeps you from feeling that tickly feeling in your throat that causes a cough.
However, if you have a productive cough (a cough that produces mucous or phlegm) you’ll usually find that a different type of cough syrup, for example, simple linctus, will be better for you.

What is codeine linctus?
Codeine linctus is a type of cough medicine that helps to relieve the symptoms of dry, persistent coughs.
It works by decreasing the urge to cough, allowing your throat time to heal.
Please be aware that codeine linctus is an opioid and can be very addictive, therefore it should only be used for a short period of time; and, if possible, you should consider using another variant of cough medicine with a lower potential for dependence.
Due to this risk, this medicine is only available on prescription.
Why can I only buy one bottle of codeine linctus at a time?
A maximum of one bottle will be supplied with each purchase, multiple purchases made within a short space of time will be rejected. This is because codeine linctus should only be used for a short period of time, as taking codeine over a prolonged period of time can cause addiction. If you find that you need to use Codeine Linctus for a prolonged period, speak to your doctor for advice.
