Grilinctus (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide)

Grilinctus (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) is a pleasant tasting composition of proved therapeutic agents. It provides symptomatic relief from dry, irritating and allergic cough. Grilinctus (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) is a combination; and provides a potent non-narcotic, non-addictive cough suppressant, Grilinctus (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) with the anti-allergic effect of Chlorpheniramine Maleate and the soothing properties of Ammonium Chloride and Guaiphenesin.

Grilinctus (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide)a non-narcotic cough suppressant, in contrast to Morphine and Codeine, acts by acting on the cough centre and raises the central threshold for noxious stimuli. While Codeine increases the muscle tone in the intestinal tract thereby tending to reduce peristalsis and cause constipation, Grilinctus (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) does not cause constipation or other gastro-intestinal disturbances. Grilinctus (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) compares favorably in cough suppressant effectiveness wit Codeine. Being non-toxic and devoid of the undesirable effects of the narcotic cough suppressants, Grilinctus (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) is particularly effective in the treatment of spasmodic cough. Because of its wide margin of safety, it is possible to increase the dose of Grilinctus (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide), in order to obtain a greater cough suppressant effect, for the control of severe paroxysmal coughing.

Ammonium Chloride and Guaiphenesin soothe the mucous lining and relieve irritation in the respiratory tract by direct demulcent effect.

Chlorpheniramine Maleate is one of the most active anti-allergic drugs developed. It is indicated in the treatment of cough occurring as a manifestation of allergy. The incidence of drowsiness after Chlorpheniramine Maleate is minimal as compared to other anti-allergies. It controls nasal congestion and post pharyngeal secretions adding much to the comfort of the patient. Moreover, since Chlorpheniramine Maleate does not have significant anti-cholinergic (atropine like) activity, it does not produce drying of mucosa and hence, it does not interfere with the body's natural process of cough expulsion.
