Benylin Dry Coughs Night Syrup - 150ml

Description

Benylin Dry Cough Night Syrup is a nighttime cough medication thoughtfully crafted to alleviate the discomfort associated with dry, non-productive coughs that often intensify during the night. Unlike productive coughs that expel mucus, dry coughs can be particularly bothersome, as they do not produce phlegm or mucus. Benylin Dry Cough Night Syrup offers targeted relief during the night, allowing you to rest more comfortably.

Proper usage of Benylin Dry Cough Night Syrup is essential for both effectiveness and safety. Here are the recommended directions for use:

Ingredients

Understanding the active and inactive ingredients in Benylin Dry Cough Night Syrup is essential for safe and effective use.
Active Ingredients:
Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride (14 mg per 5 ml): Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine with sedative properties. It helps relieve coughing and improve sleep quality by reducing nighttime coughing.
Levomenthol (0.55 mg per 5 ml): Levomenthol provides a soothing effect on the throat, helping to ease irritation and discomfort.
Inactive Ingredients: Benylin Dry Cough Night Syrup may contain various inactive ingredients, such as sucrose, glycerin, ethanol, and various flavorings. Be sure to check the product label for a complete list of inactive ingredients, especially if you have allergies or sensitivities.

Side effects

While Benylin Dry Cough Night Syrup is generally well-tolerated when used as directed, some individuals may experience side effects. Common side effects may include:
Drowsiness: Due to the sedative effects of diphenhydramine, drowsiness is a common side effect. It is essential to avoid activities that require mental alertness, such as driving or operating heavy machinery, while using this medication.

Before using Benylin Dry Cough Night Syrup, consider the following warnings and precautions:
