What is Pholcodine?
Pholcodine Linctus sugar free is a medicine that is used to suppress a persistent, non-productive dry cough (antitussive). Pholcodine is part of the opioid family of drugs, meaning that it has a mild sedative effect, however it has little effect on relieving pain. Pholcodine can also be found in some cough lozenges, however in the UK it is almost exclusively sold as an oral solution, at a strength of 5mg/5ml.
How Can I Best Treat My Cough?
Cough’s are generally worsened by increased physical activity, this is because your lungs need to work harder to get oxygen to all the right places, which in turn triggers the cough centre in your brain to become over-stimulated, leading to an exacerbation of the cough you already have. It is recommended you get as much rest as possible, drink plenty of warm fluids, remain hydrated and use a cough suppressant if you have a dry cough such as Pholcodine or codeine linctus, both of which are available at Cloud Pharmacy.
