Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Forte (pholcodine) is used to relieve dry coughs that do not produce phlegm. This medication is similar to, but more potent than, Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Regular, and is not suitable for patients under 12 years of age.

The active ingredient in Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Forte, pholcodine, influences the cough center in the brain to inhibit the cough reflex. Coughing is significantly reduced or eliminated completely.

The medication is effective on dry coughs from nearly any cause, be it acute illness or irritation or flare-ups in chronic conditions such as asthma. It may be used as-needed for several consecutive days, but should not be used on a daily basis for weeks or months without doctor approval.

Getting the Most from Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Forte

Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Forte has a pleasant apricot flavor and may be taken with or without food according to personal preference. Each bottle of the product includes a measuring cup for precise dosing. Standard treatment is:

  • Ages 12 and up take 5 ml every 6 hours as needed to relieve coughing.
  • Do not administer to patients under 12 years of age.

Effects are felt fairly quickly, within 15 to 30 minutes of taking a dose. Effects last around 6 hours, so taking the next dose on time should prevent any relapse. Do not exceed 4 doses, or 20 ml, in one day.

As Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Forte is a cough suppressant, use should generally be avoided in treating productive coughs that bring up phlegm. For productive coughs an expectorant that thins and loosens phlegm is much more beneficial, such as Duro-Tuss Chesty Cough Liquid Regular or Duro-Tuss Chesty Cough Liquid Forte.

For dry coughs accompanied by chest congestion, try Duro-Tuss Expectorant Cough Liquid.

The regular strength version of this product, Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Regular, can be used in children as young as 6 years old.
