What is Benylin Dry Cough Night Syrup?

Benylin Dry Cough Night Syrup is a treatment that works to reduce the effects of a dry cough and help with sleep loss that occurs as a result of a cough. The medicine contains three active ingredients that help to achieve this:

  • Diphenhydramine
  • Dextromethorphan
  • Levomenthol

Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine that works to reduce coughing and clear mucus in the throat and chest. Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that will reduce the severity of cough and levomenthol is a decongestant that will help by making it easier to breathe.


How can a cough cause sleep deprivation?

Sleep loss can be caused when having a cough because it is easier for irritants that cause the cause to make their way up the throat. This will make a cough worse, making getting some much-needed sleep more difficult. A remedy for this is to incline your head by using some extra pillows. This will allow for fewer irritants in the throat. Though it won’t stop a cough completely.


Who is this cough syrup suitable for?

This Benylin syrup can be used by adults and children aged 12 and over. Anyone who is allergic to any of the ingredients in the medicine should not use it. This medicine should not be used either if any of the following applies:

  • If you suffer from lung disease
  • Have prostate problems
  • Narrow-angle glaucoma
  • Are taking antidepressants called Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
  • Suffer from alcoholism as this syrup contains alcohol
