Duro-Tuss Chesty Cough Liquid Regular (bromhexine hydrochloride) works to break down thick, viscous phlegm in the airways that causes chest congestion, making coughs more productive and clearing airways.
The medication is most commonly used to alleviate congestion from acute bronchitis, colds, flu and other short-term respiratory infections which cause chest congestion and excess mucus production. It can be used safely in all patients 13 years old and up, and with doctor supervision in patients aged 2 to 12 years.
Duro-Tuss Chesty Cough Liquid Regular is not effective at treating dry, unproductive coughs, such as smoker's cough---for dry coughs, try Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Regular or Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Forte. For additional expectorant support, consider Duro-Tuss Expectorant Cough Liquid. Effectiveness in treating cough or congestion in chronic conditions, such as asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis and so forth may vary considerably between individuals, and is not the intended use of this product.
Getting the Most from Duro-Tuss Chesty Cough Liquid Regular
Duro-Tuss Chesty Cough Liquid Regular is easy to use; each bottle of the pleasant-tasting, forest fruit-flavored syrup comes with a reusable measuring cap for precise doses.
Standard doses are as follows, but keep in mind that a doctor should determine the ideal dosage for patients under 13 years old:
Some effects may felt quickly, within 15 to 30 minutes of administration, though significant relief may take longer, especially after the first dose. Effects last around 8 hours. Congestion is alleviated and breathing is improved somewhat as mucus in the airways is thinned; greater relief is experienced as more productive coughs begin to expel mucus from the body. Because coughs are more productive, coughing is often less frequent and less violent.
For particularly difficult coughs, Duro-Tuss Chesty Cough Liquid Forte contains the same active ingredient as the regular version of the product, but also contains guaiphenesin, an expectorant that further aids in expelling mucus.
