Dry coughs have a number of causes, ranging from acute illness to chronic conditions. If persistent, a dry cough can disrupt work, sleep and other routine daily activities, as well as cause throat pain and chest soreness from overworked muscles. Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Regular offers a fast and convenient solution; the product can be used as-needed and begins working within 15 to 30 minutes of administration.

Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Regular is safe for use in diabetics and those with sensitivities to dairy or grain products:

  • Sugar free
  • Gluten free
  • Lactose free
  • Alcohol free

This product is available over-the-counter; a prescription is not required.

Choosing the Ideal Cough Treatment

Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Regular is intended to be used short term, for only a few consecutive days. Short term use is usually sufficient to manage dry coughs from acute illness, such as a cold, or occasional flare-ups in chronic conditions, such as asthma. The medication should not be used long term, for weeks or months, to manage chronic coughing unless instructed to do so by a doctor; long-term use increases risk of side effects.

As Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Regular is a cough suppressant, which inhibits coughing, it should not be used to treat productive coughs which expel phlegm. For productive coughs, consider Duro-Tuss Chesty Cough Liquid Regular or Duro-Tuss Chesty Cough Liquid Forte, both of which help loosen and expel phlegm.

A stronger version of Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Regular can be found in Duro-Tuss Dry Cough Liquid - Forte. The Forte version contains 15 mg pholcodine per 5 ml of syrup, while the Regular version contains 5 mg pholcodine per 5 ml of syrup. This is a very important distinction when measuring doses, particularly for children; the Forte version should not be administered to patients under 12.

Finally, Duro-Tuss Expectorant Cough Liquid contains the cough suppressant pholcodine as well as bromhexine hydrochloride, which helps relieve chest congestion.
