Benylin Chesty Coughs is a popular and reliable non-drowsy cough medicine, which will allow you to enjoy your day without coughing or experiencing side effects such as drowsiness.

This medicine helps to clear congestion in the chest by loosening mucus in the airways. This means that when you cough you will get rid of the substances causing your congestion. This is done with an active ingredient called levomenthol.

On top of medicine such as Benylin, it is important to look after yourself. Try these tips to speed up your recovery:

  • Staying rested will help your immune system to recover
  • Frequently washing your hands will stop the spread of germs
  • Staying hydrated can help to loosen mucus, and replenish fluids you have lost through your nose and mouth
  • A steamy shower will help to open up the nasal passages
  • If you are struggling to sleep, try sleeping on a slight incline - this will prevent mucus from reaching your throat, and help with congestion
  • Consider avoiding cigarettes and other forms of smoke, as it commonly causes irritation of the lungs

Benylin should not be used by children under the age of 12.

Take two spoonfuls (5ml each) of Benylin every 4-6 hours. Do not exceed four doses within 24 hours. If your symptoms do not improve, consult your GP or pharmacist.

Not everyone will experience side effects when they take Benylin Chesty Cough, however if you do they may include:

Stomach pain, nausea, diarrhoea

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a chesty cough?

    When the respiratory system is working normally, the tissue of the lungs is lined with a layer of mucus (or phlegm), which prevents irritants from entering the lungs. These irritants include bacteria, viruses and dust. Coughing is the body’s mechanism of removing the mucus which has trapped irritants. This is why you have an excess of mucus and a chesty cough when you are fighting a cold.

  • How does Benylin Chesty Cough work?

    This medicine’s two ingredients are guaifenesin and levomenthol.

    Guaifenesin is an expectorant. This is a type of medicine which acts on receptors in the stomach in such a way that increases the amount of fluid in the airways. Because there is more fluid, the substances causing congestion become thinner and more likely to be expelled by coughing.

    Levomenthol is added to ease congestion and make your cough less harsh.
