Pholcodine Linctus - Dry coughs are best treated with a medicine that stops the urge to cough. The cough has no purpose and the irritation on the chest is more nuisance than benefit. There are several medicines available which have just this action. The medical term for a cough suppressant is an antitussive. Pholcodine is now the recommended replacement for codeine linctus, it is just as effective but manages to avoid the problems that are encountered with the use of codeine. Again it is usually available in liquid form, but can be taken as tablets and capsules along with other active ingredients. For example, cold and flu remedies often have pholcodine as an ingredient.

How to take Care Pholcodine Linctus:

  • Dose may be repeated every 4 hours if required.
