Drops from a cough: a review of drops, how to take the instructions
Cough drops having a different composition are pharmacological drugs used to dilute sputum.
In addition, the drops help the phlegm to easily leave the bronchi with productive cough or to suppress the cough center with an unproductive cough.
These medicines are used for such diseases as:
- whooping cough;
- ARVI and ARI;
- chronic and acute stage of bronchitis of different etiology.
Often, to improve the process of sputum discharge with wet cough, such drops are prescribed:
- Chest drops from cough;
To get rid of dry cough, the most commonly used is Stopoutsin and Sinekod.
PharmacodynamicsExpectorant action of the agent based on ammonia and anise provides such active ingredients - ammonia solution (aqueous ammonia solution) and essential oil of anise seeds. Anise extract, thanks to phenolic compounds, has an antiseptic effect.
In addition, it contains the aromatic oil Anetol (1-methoxy-4-propenylbenzene) and the isomer of this substance is para-allyl anisole. Even in anise oil there are carboxylic organic acids (oily and propionic).
Moreover, the ammonia solution affects the ciliated epithelium of the respiratory system and the nerve endings reflexively, activating the respiratory center and inducing phlegm cough.
The therapeutic effect of chest drops from wet and dry cough, which are identical to the Thoracic Elixir, is achieved thanks to a solution of ammonia and anise oil, which activate the excretory function of the respiratory mucosa ways.
Even in the medicine contains the root of liquorice (licorice naked), in which there is glycyrrhizic acid and saponins, which softens the cough and promotes cough. Moreover, glabridine (licorice flavonoid) eliminates the inflammatory process in the upper respiratory tract.
Expectorant combined preparation Bronchipret improves sputum evacuation by means of complex action of active components of the drug:
- Tincture of ivy leaves, full of organic acids and saponins.
- Extract of herb thyme (aroma oils, terpenes, flavonoids, phenols).
The therapeutic effect of Bronchosan is based on the substances that make up its composition:
Bromhexine exerts a mucolytic (reducing the viscosity of bronchial secretions) and expectorant action. Ethereal extracts, in addition to analgesic and antispasmodic effect, relieve inflammation in the bronchial mucosa provoked by staphylococcus, facilitate breathing and reduce the intensity of dry cough.
Pharmacodynamics Gedelix is based on such components as organic acids of ivy leaves, saponins, hederins. All these substances help the separation and excretion of sputum from the lungs and bronchi.
The drug Sinecode depresses the cough reflex and has an effect on the cough center of the medulla oblongata. The main component of the agent is butamyrate-2 diethylaminoethoxyethyl and phenylbutyrate dihydrogen. Drops promote the expansion of lumens in the bronchi, thereby removing excess mucus and facilitating the respiratory process.
Stoptopsin has a complex effect, because it contains butamate, relieving dry and wet cough, guaifenesin, making sputum less viscous and glycerin ether. Guaifenesin is rapidly absorbed into the bronchi, destroys the mucopolysaccharides of mucus, thereby increasing the amount of sputum.
The process of its removal accelerates due to the fact that the phenolic compounds of guaiacolate irritate the ciliate epithelium of the bronchi.
PharmacokineticsIt is worth noting that the pharmacokinetics of most antitussive drops are not indicated by the manufacturer in the instructions attached to the preparations.
The pharmacokinetics of Bronchosan, as indicated in the leaflet to the drug, is stated only on the basis of absorption and transformation of bromhexine, which is rapidly absorbed by blood from the digestive tract. Its concentration is achieved in blood plasma 60 minutes after admission.
The drug is cleaved in the liver, resulting in an active metabolite Ambroxol, which exerts an expectorant effect. Excretion is carried out through the intestines and kidneys.
Drops from a wet cough and dry Stoptussin, Sinekod and Butamirat are absorbed into the digestive tract, and then get into the blood bind to proteins. The beginning of the biotransformation of butamirate is carried out in the blood plasma, at the same time pharmacologically active metabolites are formed, which are excreted from the urine in 12 hours.
In Stoptopsin, the metabolism of guaifenesin is carried out in the liver. And biotransformation products are excreted through the kidneys by urine and through the lungs by sputum evacuation.
There are a number of contraindications to the use of antitussive drops. So, Stopoutsin can not be used when:
- cardiac arrhythmia;
- diabetes mellitus;
- increased blood pressure;
- exacerbation of stomach ulcers.
Moist-anise drops should not be used if the acidity of the gastric juice is increased and if there is an ulcer. Another drop is forbidden to apply until three years of age.
Sinecode is contraindicated for the treatment of children under two years of age and with pulmonary hemorrhage. Breast drops from cough are not used in the treatment of children (up to 12 years), high blood pressure, excessive body weight, abnormalities in kidney and liver and hypokalemia.
Gedelix is banned if the child is not two years old and if there is bronchial asthma. Bronchosan is not used if the patient is under the age of three, with alcoholism, severe hepatic and renal insufficiency, duodenal ulcer, liver cirrhosis and stomach ulcer.
A Bronchipret can not be used until 6 years.
In the instructions to the preparations, the difference in side reactions is indicated:
- Bronchosan is an allergic rhinitis, itching, nausea, activation of liver enzymes and vomiting.
- Drops based on anise and ammonia - irritation of the stomach mucosa, which provokes vomiting, a decrease in heart rate.
- Gedelix - pain in the abdomen, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting.
- Thoracic antitussive drops - increased blood pressure, allergies, swelling, nausea and vomiting, nausea and vomiting.
- Stoptussin and Sinekod - an allergic rash on the skin, diarrhea, nausea, dizziness, pain in the head. A prolonged reception of Stoptussin provokes epigastric pain.
- Bronchitis - nausea and allergic rash.
Instructions for use and dosageDrops from a dry and wet cough take inside. So, the dose of ammonia-anise drops for children is 1 drop for 1 year of life, and for patients up to a year - 1-2 drops 3 times a day. For the treatment of adults, 10-15 drops are diluted in 50 ml of water and taken 3-4 times a day.
Bronchosan children (after 6 years) and adults should take four times a day for 20 drops. A patient of 2 to 6 years old - 10 drops. It is worth noting that in the beginning the drug should be diluted, and then take it 25-30 minutes before eating.
Thoracic antitussive drops take 3-4 times a day for 20-40 drops. However, before they need to dilute with a little water. The drug is drunk 30 minutes before or after 1 hour after eating.
The maximum single dose of Gedelix is 30 drops. The drug is taken after meals, but on condition that the patient is over 10 years old. Children (2-4 years) - 15 drops, 4-10 years - 20 drops.
Stoptussin and Sinekod before intake should be diluted with water. Children over 2 years and adults at a time can drink up to 25 drops no more than 4 times a day.
When treating adults, Bronchitis is taken after eating four times a day for 35-40 drops. Before use, the drops are diluted with water. At one time, children aged 7-11 years can drink 10-15 drops, and adolescents (12-17 years) - 20-25 drops. Along with this, you can use a solution for inhalation from cough.
With an overdose of chest pains, symptoms of adverse reactions may increase. With prolonged use in high doses, a deficiency of potassium in the body develops.
If you exceed the dosage of Gedelix and Bronchitis, you may experience vomiting and impaired bowel functioning. With an overdose of Bronchosan, there is an increase in adverse events.
In case of an overdose of Sinecode and Stopoutsin, diarrhea and vomiting, dizziness, nausea and lowering of blood pressure are noted.
Interaction with other drugs
Chest antitussive drops can enhance the action of certain laxatives and diuretics, which disrupts the electrolyte balance. But this remedy can not be used together with nitrofurans and antibiotics.
Bronchosan and Bronchipret, if taken together with sulfonamides and antibiotics, increase their concentration in the bronchi and respiratory tract.
Stoptussin doubles the action of acetonic acid and potentiates the effect of alcohol, hypnotics and muscle relaxants.
Storage conditions and shelf life
Cough drops should be stored in a dark place at a temperature of not more than 27 degrees.
- Stoptussin and Sinekod - 5 years;
- Breast and anisovo-ammonia drops - 3 years;
- Gedelix - 2 years in a sealed form, and in the printed - no more than 6 months;
- Bronchosan and Bronchipret - 2 years.
The video in this article will demonstrate the benefits of a drop of cough.
Sinekod - a drug with antitussive effect. The active substance in its composition is butamyrate. This substance is not related to opium derivatives (such as codeine), which are also widely represented in the antitussive group, but are only released on prescription. Therefore sinecode is successfully used in children and is sold in pharmacies without a prescription.
Mechanism of action (pharmacodynamics)
With inflammation in the trachea and bronchi, irritation of sensitive nerve endings (receptors) occurs in their walls. On sensitive nerves, the signal from the receptors enters the cough center in the brain. This center generates impulses and sends them along the motor nerves to the muscles of the chest wall. There is a cough, aimed at clearing the bronchi and trachea from sputum and other harmful substances.
Sinekod - antitussive drug of central action.This means that its action is associated with the depression of the cough center in the brain.The sensitivity of this center decreases, and the number of pulses it generates decreases. The cough stops.
It becomes clear why the sinecode can not be taken to relieve coughing with phlegm.With a damp cough, cleansing of the respiratory tract is necessary. When suppressing cough, sputum accumulation in the bronchi will occur, which will lead to the spread of infection and the development of pneumonia. The sinecode should be taken only to facilitate a dry "scratching" cough.
Sinecod has a bronchodilator effect, it promotes the expansion of the bronchi and the reduction of resistance to their air flow. At its application improvement of instrumental indices of airway patency (spirometry) was noted. Its effect is also manifested in an increase in the oxygen content in the blood (oxygenation of the blood).
Distribution in the body (pharmacodynamics)
The sinecode is rapidly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. Even in the blood begins its disintegration to metabolites, which also have antitussive efficacy. The maximum concentration of the drug in the blood is noted after, hours after ingestion. Metabolites of butamirate bind well to blood plasma proteins and circulate in it for a long time. Therefore, the sinecode has a fairly long effect. The medicine is excreted in the urine.
Indications for use
Sinekod instructions for use recommend the appointment of a drug for suppressing dry cough with the following diseases and conditions:
- Laryngitis, laryngotracheitis.
- Whooping cough.
- Before bronchoscopy (endoscopic examination of the bronchi).
- Cough before and after the surgery.
If the patient is worried about a severe debilitating cough without sputum, accompanied by sore throat, behind the sternum, a feeling of "scratching "rending" in the throat, his condition will help ease the sinecode. Do not forget that this medicine is predominantly symptomatic. It does not affect the very cause of the disease. Therefore, the sinecode should only be used to temporarily relieve the symptoms. Simultaneously, you need to see a doctor, find out the cause of the cough and start the correct etiotropic (directed to the cause) and pathogenetic (affecting the mechanisms of the development of the disease) treatment. The use of only this drug with a cough will lead to a prolonged course of the disease, increase the risk of complications and most often will be ineffective.
Sinecod is not prescribed for allergic reactions to butamate or other components of the drug (ethyl alcohol, vanillin, benzoic acid, sodium hydroxide, sodium saccharinate, sorbitol, glycerol).
Drops of the synecone are prescribed for children up to 2 months, syrup for children under 3 years. Dragee can be taken from 6 years.
The effect of the drug on the fetus during pregnancy has not been studied, so it is not recommended to take it in the I trimester, and in II and III - with caution, only on strict indications.
It is not recommended to use the medication during breastfeeding.
You can not simultaneously (in one day) take a sinecode and any means with an expectorant action in order to avoid stagnation of sputum in the airways.
The sinecode is usually well tolerated. Instructions for use indicate the possibility of developing an allergic reaction.
After taking the sinecode drug sometimes there is nausea, there may be a loose stool.
The drug can cause dizziness and drowsiness, so during its use, you need to be careful when driving vehicles and when working with moving mechanisms.
Syrup and sinekod drops have a pleasant vanilla flavor and sweet taste. Therefore, care should be taken to ensure that children do not have access to this medication. When an overdose of the drug may appear nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, as well as drowsiness, lower blood pressure and dizziness. If such signs appear, the affected person should be given activated carbon and call an ambulance.

How do cough drops work?
Drops of cough for today can be found in any pharmacy. There are various drugs from both dry and wet cough. Each of them is calculated for a specific use. It is only necessary to distinguish between drugs for adults and children. Such drugs can be all kinds of pills, capsules, various syrups for fighting cough, inhalation, all kinds of traditional medicine. In addition to all of the above, there are also drops that allow you to fight with a cough.
Such medications are equally popular in the fight against coughing, rather than any others.Moreover, drops from cough can be taken as adults, and children.Their variety is small in comparison with other drugs, but there is also something to choose from.
Drops for children from cough
If we take into account pediatrics, then, of course, the drops are one of the most convenient forms of the drug.
The fact is that they can easily be added to food or dissolved in any drink. Children's droplets against cough can be divided into three groups. This division is carried out according to the very principle of the effect of this drug, as well as efficiency.
Now, in more detail about each group:
- Droplets that can reduce the irritability of the so-called reflex center, which is responsible for coughing. The result is immediate, but you need to be extremely cautious, giving such drugs to children aged no more than 2 years. The fact is that they are able to depress the breath.
- The second group includes more harmless drugs that help reduce the sensitivity of the surfaces of the larynx and, of course, the bronchi. Such drugs are also less active than the first group. Yes, and they act for a short time.
- The third group includes expectorant droplets. They are able to excite the smooth muscles of the stomach, so that the cough will intensify. In the process, the bronchi will shrink sufficiently, after which sputum production will occur.
Drops that provoke expectoration, most often produce on the basis of various herbs. To the group of such drops, it is possible to relate easily the ammonium anise. But it is worth remembering that without the appointment of a doctor and with non-compliance with the technique of using this drug, even this kind of means to give the child can not.
Aniseed drops in the fight against coughAniseed drops from cough - this is quite common today. They are good for both dry and wet cough. They can be purchased at any pharmacy.

They are presented in the form of a colorless or yellowish liquid, which has a light aroma of ammonia. Capsules of anise do not scare off their children with their smell and at the same time they are well tolerated by them.
The effect of this drug and its useNarrow-anise drops are a very good tool for fighting cough. They have an expectorant and anti-inflammatory effect. They are very effective for various colds in children. Have an excellent effect on the baby's throat and his airways.
Due to the anethole, sputum is produced. Moreover, such a medicine is an antiseptic.
The complex composition is able to help in the treatment of all colds in children. Moreover, such drops are able to improve the baby's appetite and digestion, which is exactly what children do not have at the time of a cold.
Most often, children who suffer from a cold are prone to loss of appetite. If the child's appetite rises, then the tone of the whole organism rises, which allows you to eliminate the infection much faster.
Drops are simple in their application. They need to be taken 3 times a day. Anise drops for adults and children can not be taken in pure form. They must be diluted in boiled water.
How does an ammonium anise drop occur? Such a drug can be taken not only as a cough remedy. Drops have the following useful properties:

Side effects and possible contraindications.
Side effects and possible contraindications
The effect of these droplets is very effective. Moreover, they are easily portable. Side effects after receiving these funds are practically not observed. Seldom can be caused by toxicosis or any allergic reactions and weakness of the body.
If we talk about contraindications, then there are a few more. In no case should you take medicine if you have gastritis or peptic ulcer. Also, for certain liver diseases, do not use this medication. During lactation or any craniocerebral trauma, it is also undesirable to take this remedy..
It is not desirable to take this drug to people whose work requires special attention and vigilance. It should also be taken into account that it is not recommended to be used together with tablets that have an active effect directly on the cough center in the brain.

How to get rid of dry cough?
Sanya (Two years on the answers)
Cough treatment - antitussives
Before treating a cough, you need to establish its cause and nature. So, after a person quits smoking, his cough disappears by itself, without any treatment.
To reduce dry non-productive cough use antitussive. Such tools include, for example, codeine (preparations based on it - kodelak, terpinkod), which depresses the cough center and thereby reduces cough. Preparations of this series should be taken with a dry, non-productive cough, which in itself can cause irritation of the respiratory tract. Suppress cough and preparations of other groups, for example, stoptussin, glaucin, libeksin. To suppress night cough, you can use antihistamine (allergy-relieving and tissue swelling) drugs, for example, diazolin or tavegil.
One of the most effective antitussive agents is the moistening of the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract by means of aerosols and steam inhalations. This reduces the irritation of the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract and reduces the viscosity of phlegm. Inhalation of steam by themselves or with some additions (for example, baking soda, salt, eucalyptus, sage, etc.) ) - the simplest, accessible and common method of moisturizing. Along with this can be used abundant drink (warm mineral water, tea, juices, fruit drinks, broths of herbs).
Transfer of non-productive cough to productive
In order to remove phlegm from the respiratory tract, you need to make a dry (unproductive) cough moist (productive). This is achieved by the appointment of means diluting thick viscous sputum and expectorants.
Dilute sputum and help its better removal of bromhexine, acetylcysteine. Split the necrotic tissue and dilute sputum and enzyme preparations such as trypsin (it is used in the form of inhalation), ATSTS.
Expectorants include licorice roots, althaea, mucaltin, terpinhydrate, etc. There are many folk expectorants, for example, picking the roots of licorice, elecampane and althea (in total): 1 a tablespoon of the mixture boil 10 minutes in 300 ml of water, insist 2 hours, strain, take a third cup 3 times in a day.
Treatment of cough with irritation of the upper respiratory tract
To remove the cough caused by irritation of the upper respiratory tract, enveloping agents are used. Their action is based on the creation of a protective layer for the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract. These are resorption tablets, sprays containing plant extracts (eucalyptus, acacia, liquorice, etc.), glycerin, honey and other components.
Treatment of a cough caused by a spasm of bronchial tubes (allergic cough)
If the patient has a cough with bronchospasm, then drugs that promote the expansion of bronchi (bronchodilators, for example, eufillin) are prescribed antiallergic and anti-inflammatory drugs. It is not necessary in this case to prescribe an expectorant, as the sputum during bronchospasm will linger in the bronchi.
Remember that a prolonged cough may be a symptom of some serious illness. Therefore, it is better to consult a doctor with such a cough.
