Ingredients in Robitussin®
Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that works by changing the way the brain responds to coughing. It's a centrally acting cough suppressant, meaning it acts on the brain to reduce the urge to cough. Guaifenesin is an expectorant that helps to loosen and thin mucus in the chest and throat, making it easier to cough up and clear.
Robitussin® is available in several different forms, including liquid, capsules, and gummies. The liquid form can be taken every 4 hours, while the capsules and gummies can be taken as directed on the package. It's important to follow the dosing instructions on the package and not to exceed the recommended dose. Taking more than the recommended dose of Robitussin can cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, and dry mouth.
What is Robitussin Used For?
Robitussin® is often used to relieve the symptoms of coughs, colds, bronchitis, and other respiratory conditions. It can also be used to relieve chest congestion and make it easier to breathe.
It's also important to note that Robitussin® shouldn't be used as a substitute for a healthy and balanced diet when sick. Individuals should still consume a balanced diet that includes a variety of different foods and nutrients.
