    What is Codeine Linctus Sugar Free?

    Codeine Linctus Sugar Free is a cough syrup that helps to ease your dry, tickly coughs. Its sugar-free formulation makes it ideal for those who need to control their sugar intake and are looking for an effective way to relieve their irritating cough.

     

    What is a dry or tickly cough?

    A dry or a tickly cough is the kind of a cough that doesn’t produce any mucous and usually clears up within 3 weeks. If you have a dry cough, you’ll notice an itchy or tickly feeling in the back of your throat that makes you want to cough. This is caused by irritation in your airways, with some of the most common causes of a cough including:

    • Upper Respiratory Tract Infections, e.g. cold and flu, sinusitis, laryngitis
    • Lower Respiratory Tract Infections, e.g. bronchitis, pneumonia
    • Allergies or hay fever
    • Inhaling dust or stroke
    • Long-term conditions such as asthma or acute bronchitis

     

    How does Codeine Linctus help to ease dry coughs?

    Codeine Linctus Sugar Free syrup helps to ease dry coughs by changing how your body responds to itching and irritation in the throat. It contains the active ingredient codeine phosphate, which is a painkiller that can also be used to ease dry coughs. When the way your body responds to the itching and tickling sensation in your throat it reduces the urge to cough, which in turn gives your irritated throat time to heal, getting rid of that stubborn cough for good.

     

    Can I take this product while I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

    You should not take codeine linctus while you are breastfeeding, as codeine metabolises into morphine which can pass into your breastmilk. If you are pregnant you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before taking this product or any other medication to ensure that it is safe for you and your baby.

     

    Can I take this product at the same time as other medication?

    Codeine Linctus Sugar Free should not be taken at the same time as some other medicines, as they may interact. Speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before taking this product if you are taking any other medication, including those you obtained without a prescription, especially if you are taking any of the following:

    • Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs), which are a type of antidepressant, e.g. Isocarboxadid (Marplan), Phenelzine (Nardil), Selegiline (Emsam)
    • CNS depressants, e.g. chlorpromazine, diazepam (Valium)
    • Anticholinergics, e.g. oxybutynin
    • Hydroxyzine
    • Methadone
    • Levallorphan
    • Neuromuscular blocking agents, e.g. atracurium
    • Metoclopramide
    • Mexiletine
    • Hypnotics (e.g. sleeping tablets) or sedatives

     

    Can I drive after taking this medicine?

    Can I drink alcohol while I’m taking this cough medicine?

    You should not drink alcohol after taking this cough medicine as it could increase drowsiness, making it more difficult to manage.

     

    How to take this dry cough medicine
