Delkodin DC oral suspension
Dry Cough Suppressant

Composition

Each 5mL of DELKODIN DC contains dextromethorphan 15mg.

Description:

DELKODIN DC is the brand name for dextromethorphan oral suspension that works against an unproductive cough. The formulation works by interacting with the medullary cough center in the brain. With this interaction, dextromethorphan inhibits the cough refluxes. Dextromethorphan is a non-narcotic antitussive that belongs to the class of morphinans.

Mechanism of Action:

This drug acts centrally and raises the threshold for coughing without interfering with the ciliary action. This drug is quickly absorbed in the GI tract, and it is converted to the active metabolite, dextrorphan in the liver. Dextromethorphan then enters the bloodstream and crosses to the blood-brain barrier to exhibit its cough suppressing activity.

Indication:

  • Unproductive and dry cough
  • Throat irritation
  • Dry and itchy feeling in the throat
  • Sore throat

Dosage and Administration:

As directed by the physician

Contraindication:

This medicine is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity towards dextromethorphan, advanced hepatic disease and advanced respiratory disorders.

Adverse Effects:

Precaution:

There are no sufficient and well-controlled studies when it comes to dextromethorphan administration in pregnant women and nursing mothers. Therefore, if you are pregnant or nursing, discuss with your doctor about your condition before taking this medicine.
