Duro-Tuss Expectorant Cough Liquid (pholcodine, bromhexine hydrochloride) is a double-action cough syrup which both alleviates excessive coughing and relieves chest congestion by thinning and loosening phlegm in the airways.

The medication can be safely used in patients aged 6 and up. Free of sugar, lactose and gluten, it is also safe for use in diabetics or individuals with sensitivities to dairy or grain products.

The medication works on two fronts. Pholcodine works on the part of the brain responsible for the cough reflex, reducing the frequency of coughs, particularly dry, unproductive coughs. Bromhexine hydrochloride thins and loosens the thick, sticky phlegm that causes chest congestion so it is easier to expel, freeing the airways.

Duro-Tuss Expectorant Cough Liquid is ideal for respiratory infections such as the common cold which tend to produce symptoms of congestion and unproductive coughs. It may also provide temporary relief during flare-ups of some chronic conditions, such as asthma, though as with any medication that affects the lungs a doctor should be consulted before use if there is a severe chronic breathing condition present.

Directions for Use

Duro-Tuss Expectorant Cough Liquid is used as needed, as long as there are 6 hours between doses. Standard dosing is:

  • 13 years old and up take 10 to 15 ml.
  • 6 to 12 years take 5 to 10 ml.
  • Do not administer to children under 6 years.

Effects are typically noticed around 15 to 30 minutes after administration; coughing should become less frequent, less violent, and more productive. Breathing may also improve and feelings of pressure or congestion in the chest may recede as phlegm is thinned and expelled.

Warnings & Adverse Effects

Most side effects associated with Duro-Tuss Expectorant Cough Liquid are mild and pass quickly, including:

  • Nausea
  • Stomach pain
  • Indigestion
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness

More serious side effects are rare, but do happen. Stop taking the medication and speak to a doctor if experiencing:

Individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding, who have a severe respiratory condition, or who are taking sedatives or anti-anxiety medications should not buy Duro-Tuss Expectorant Cough Liquid without first speaking to a doctor about potential complications.

Use of similar products, such as medications that treat cold or flu symptoms, should be avoided while using Duro-Tuss Expectorant Cough Liquid. Consumption of alcohol during treatment increases risk of serious side effects.
