Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • A cough medicine (or linctus, when in syrup form) is a medicinal drug used in an attempt to treat coughing and related conditions.

  • For dry coughs, treatment with cough suppressants (antitussives) may be attempted to suppress the body's urge to cough, while in productive coughs (coughs that produce  phlegm), treatment is attempted with  expectorants (typically  guaifenesin, in most commercial medications) in an attempt to loosen mucus from the respiratory tract.

  • There however is no good evidence for or against the use of these medications in those with a cough. Even though they are used by 10% of American children weekly, they are not recommended in children 6 years of age or younger due to lack of evidence showing effect, and concerns of harm.

  • Dextromethorphan (DXM) may be modestly effective in decreasing cough in adults with viral upper respiratory infections. In children however it has not been found to be effective.

  • Codeine was once viewed as the gold standard in cough suppressants. Some recent placebo-controlled trials have found however that it may be no better than placebo for some etiologies including acute cough in childrenIt is thus not recommended for children.
  • Other commercially available cough treatments have not been shown to be effective in viral upper respiratory infections, including in  adults: antihistamines, antihistamine-decongestant combinations, Benzonatate, and guaifenesin; and in children: antihistamines, decongestants  or combinations of these.
  • The efficacy of cough medication is questionable, particularly in children. A 2008 Cochrane review concluded that "There is no good evidence for or against the effectiveness of OTC medicines in acute cough".
  • According to the New York Times, at least eight mass poisonings have occurred as a result of counterfeit cough syrup, substituting inexpensive diethylene glycol in place of glycerin.
