Answered questions

Which drug is better from these two antitussives to relief the cough : Codeine or Dextromethorphan?
Asked by Jewel Cliatt 5 months ago.

Plogsties is absolutely right. Codeine is a potent cough suppressant, as are virtually all opiates. In fact, dextromethorphan itself likely owes its own antitussive capability to the fact that it closely resembles other opiates in chemical structure. Codeine, definitely. Answered by Hoyt Gustitus 5 months ago.

DXM is a cool trip but can get pretty weird and it makes you a little stupid. Codeine is an opiate though so definitely codeine, if you take enough. At least in my opinion. I've been doing drugs for a long time lol so I've had a lot of experience with both. Answered by Lessie Hoppesch 5 months ago.

Codeine is the one I would choose, but you cannot drive a car or go to school/work while actively taking them. There are non-narcotic anti-tussives that are very effective beside the Dextromethorphan. Such as Tessalon Perles, for one. Answered by Sonya Samela 5 months ago.

Codeine works as an analgesic if I'm not mistaken, and Dextromethorphan HBr is a cough suppressant. Answered by Carrol Chen 5 months ago.

All of the opiates - codeine included-are much more potent cough suppressants than DMTP. Answered by Maryalice Pavlich 5 months ago.


Why arent antitussives good for people with emphysema and bronchitis?
Asked by Patria Notah 5 months ago.

If your lungs are trying to expel dead germs & whatever else is in phlegm, by coughing, then suppressing the cough will keep the stuff in your lungs. Answered by Rogelio Rightley 5 months ago.


What does this this description about antitussives means?
"Cough suppression often occurs with lower doses of opioids than those needed for analgesia". Asked by Kim Miguez 5 months ago.

When you give someone an opioid, say codeine, for a cough. The dose needed to stop someone from coughing is usually less than the dose you need to help someone when they are in pain with an opioid Answered by Anjanette Aviles 5 months ago.

Guaifenesin is an expectorant drug sold over the counter and usually taken by mouth to assist the bringing up ("expectoration") of phlegm from the airways in acute respiratory tract infections. Dextromethorphan is an antitussive drug. It is one of the active ingredients used to prevent coughs in many over-the-counter cold and cough medicines. Answered by Deanna Bedrosian 5 months ago.

Great answer there Dave I would only add a bit to it that the expectorant will decrease viscosity but this kind of antitussive will not suppress coughing completely, it will only make it a little less frequent but always enough to allow cleaning of the airways while coughing. Dextromethorphan although it acts over the brain cough center, does not have the sedative effects of the narcotic kind cough supressants which could actually take away your cough; if mucolytics were combined with narcotics you would really have trouble expectorating therefore increasing your breathing problems. So you see, even though it seems improper to do the combination you mention it really adds some comfort during the illness. Good Luck Answered by Nelson Potterson 5 months ago.

Yes, it does seem counterintuitive but there are certain situations where the cough is constant and prolonged and unproductive. This can fatigue the muscles involved in the coughing and cause essentially " collateral" damage such as burst blood vessels, abdominal hernias, spontaneous pneumothoraces. Severe bronchitis, either infective or chemical can produce this kind of coughing. You must suppress the cough reflex to give the patient a break but you still need to decrease the viscosity of the sputum to prevent bronchial obstruction with the mucolytics and hydration. This, of course, is only one of the medications used to treat this type of cough. You must treat the cause with either steroids or antibiotics or both depending on the patient's medical history and the pathology of the present condition. In addition, you might need bronchodilators. I also asked this question at the beginning of my career. Medicine is an art not a science. Make the patient comfortable while treating the underlying pathology and giving the body time to heal itself. God bless. Answered by Hector Wooldridge 5 months ago.
