Each CAMYDEX-20 tablet contains dextromethorphan 20mg.
Dextromethorphan is basically a cough suppressant that works by binding to the medullary cough center in the brain and thereby suppressing the cough reflux. This medicine is largely used for the treatment and relief of dry cough. Dextromethorphan is an opioid-like drug with no narcotic effects. This drug is one of the widely used antitussives.
Dextromethorphan, which shows high-affinity binding for the medullary cough center, is an NMDA receptor antagonist and works as a non-competitive channel blocker. This drug is rapidly absorbed in the GI tract and enters the bloodstream and eventually crosses the blood-brain to show its activity.
Dry cough caused due to cold, flu or any other health conditions.
