Asked by Sadie Christion 6 months ago.
Benzonatate is a medication taken orally to suppress coughs. It has an anesthetic (numbing) action similar to that of benzocaine and "numbs" the stretch sensors in the lungs. It is the stretching of these sensors with breathing that causes the cough. Benzonatate begins to work within 15 to 20 minutes, and its effects last for approximately 3 hours. Benzonatate is unrelated to narcotics such as codeine which are frequently used to suppress coughs. (Another frequently used cough suppressant, dextromethorphan, which is found in many over-the-counter cough and cold preparations, is a derivative of the narcotics.) Benzonatate was approved by the FDA in 1958. SIDE EFFECTS: The most frequent adverse reactions of benzonatate include sedation, headache, mild dizziness, constipation, nausea, and vomiting.

So I just got diagnosed with acute bronchitis, I also have chronic asthma. I usually get prescribed tylenol #3 or #4 which has always work with my yearly bouts of bronchitis, but this time my doctor gave me benzonatate, I'm willing to try it,but if it doesn't work up to par as expected, is it okay to request a stronger cough medicine over the phone? Or are doctors really strict now? I'm only 19 btw and feel odd asking for specific medications because of the druggie stigma associated with teenagers, I have a good relationship with my doc and don't want to screw it up. Answered by Marcelle Abbate 6 months ago.
Benzonatate stops coughs by acting on the "cough reflexes" in the lungs. It numbs something called your "stretch receptors" in your lungs so you don't cough. It has a much different mechanism than the tylenol with codeine. I have taken Benzonatate. It worked quite well, within 15 minutes. It did make me feel a little bit "loopy", but if your physician prescribed it, I would definitely try it. Your chronic asthma may limit the type of cough medications he/she wants you to take. It's OK to ask your physician, "Will this medication work as well as [whatever you are used to]?" "What's the difference in the way this new medication works?" "How is this medication different than the one I had last time?" It's also OK to say, "Tylenol with codeine has worked well for me in the past, so if the Benzonatate doesn't work very well, can I contact your office?" Answered by Freida Suttin 6 months ago.

Hi I'm 13 years old and on January 12 I was prescribed IC benzonatate for cough for possible bronchitis. I didn't get it filled because I figured it would go away and the cough died down for about a week. Now I'm experiencing sore throat, light headaches, runny/stuffy nose, lots of coughing producing phlem, and a tiny light fever. I think it's just a cold as I've been outside in 20-40* weather twice for about 2 hours at a time. My parents still filled my prescription though and I just took the first pill. Can I just take 1 per day or do I have to take the "3 per day as needed"? I don't really like pills, no matter how small. Also, is it okay if I took this and it ends up not being bronchitis but just a common cold? I know it's not specific for bronchitis but just making sure. We filled the prescription 13 days after so is it still okay to use? He told us if coughing persists to fill it in 4ish days but like I said, the coughing died down. Also, immediately after I took the pill I noticed chest pain but if that were from the pill, wouldn't it have taken longer for that effect to set in? Not to mention I was also diagnosed with costochondritis so that may be that but the chest pains WERE dying down. The pain is in the left side, what could it be? **I took the pill with water, is that okay? I know it's a lot but please help thanks Answered by Edmundo Kienast 6 months ago.
Benzonatate is a cough suppressant. It's healthy to cough to clear phlegm from your lungs when you have a cold. If a cough is keeping you up at night maybe take one an hour or before bed but otherwise I wouldn't. It's not an antibiotic so it won't treat an infection it simply stops the urge to cough. Your chest pain may be due to a costo flare up or it may just be muscular from coughing. An anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen will help with the pain and reduce your temperature. Getting outdoors wrapped up warmly is good for a cold. Fresh, humid air is good for your chest. Answered by Toby Lenz 6 months ago.

An overdose of benzonatate can be fatal, especially to a child. Accidental death has occurred in children under 2 years old who took only 1 or 2 capsules. Overdose symptoms may include numbness in the mouth or throat, feeling restless or very sleepy, tremors or shaking, seizure (convulsions), slow heart rate, weak pulse, fainting, and slow breathing (breathing may stop).

benzonatate is simply a cough suppressant and will not act if it is allergic cough. moreover if there is infection in the respiratory tract, suppressing cough may be dangerous. may be taking Cetrizine /chlorpheniramine along with sputum liquifiers like N-acetyl cysteine or ambroxol will help. amoxycillin is a good antibiotic. also try gargling with warm saline (water with a dash of salt) Answered by Abby Bindel 6 months ago.
It's never a good idea to mix over the counter medicine (like cough syrup), with other meds.... and especially not a good idea to use any medicine for a child who has asthma, without talking to the doctor. How long has been on the antibiotic and the cough medicine? His cough might be coming more from his sinus drainage, than anything. I noticed that the meds you listed didn't include an antihistamine/ decongestant.... you might call the doc, and ask if your son can take these.... Increase the clear fluids, like water or juice... he needs more fluids to help lubricate his lungs, and create an easier and more effective cough... he also needs more fluids because of the antibiotics.
