Seditus Cough Syrup, a natural herbal cough remedy formulated through the collaborative efforts of pharmaceutical companies in Spain and France. It is composed of five natural herbal ingredients that help address issues such as "springtime allergic cough, winter dry cough, thick phlegm, and respiratory discomfort." Seditus serves as a round-the-clock guardian for your and your family's respiratory system.

Coughing is undoubtedly one of the most annoying symptoms. During seasonal transitions, it is common to hear the sound of “cough, cough” from others in public transportation or the office. Moreover, in times of a pandemic, the risk of transmitting infections to one another is significantly increased. Additionally, coughs can have various causes and types, such as dry cough, productive cough, or allergic cough. Furthermore, different family members may have different medication restrictions, often leading to a situation where multiple types of cough syrups are needed for each family member, resulting in wastage.

How much do you know about the causes of coughing?

Coughing is a natural and common reflex action that protects the lungs. When the cough receptors in the nerve endings are stimulated, it triggers a cough, which helps to clear irritants from the respiratory tract and prevent internal infections.

Inside everyone’s respiratory tract, there are countless cilia constantly at work. The movement of the cilia on the respiratory mucosa efficiently surrounds foreign substances with mucus, forming phlegm, which is then expelled through coughing. In other words, a healthy adult rarely coughs.

However, coughing is an important self-protective mechanism for eliminating foreign or toxic substances and clearing excessive respiratory secretions. Therefore, coughing can be occasional, temporary, or harmless. Coughing is not a disease itself; rather, it can be a common symptom of various upper and lower respiratory tract conditions. Even individuals without lung diseases can experience coughing.

Everyone fears coughing, and there are reasons behind it!

Coughing is one way of transmitting infectious pathogens. Communicable diseases such as the flu and tuberculosis can be spread through coughing, releasing pathogens into the air and causing infections.
When there are irritants in your lungs, the body’s natural response is to cough and expel those irritants. There are several things that can irritate your lungs, including:

  1.  Pathogens: The most common cause of coughing is when you’re sick, and your lungs cough to expel viruses.
  2.  Allergies and asthma: The lungs use coughing to try and eliminate substances that cause discomfort in the body.
  3.  Irritants: Cold air, smoke, fumes, or strongly scented perfumes, among others.
  4.  Chronic lung conditions: Asthma or chronic bronchitis.
  5. Medications: Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors can cause coughing, but once the medication is discontinued, it may transition into a dry cough, which can be improved.

Coughing serves as a protective mechanism for the body, helping to clear the respiratory system of irritants and potentially harmful substances. However, it is essential to address the underlying cause of a persistent or severe cough and seek appropriate medical attention when needed.

 

Feeling drowsy? Addictive? Best prescribed by a doctor?

Cough medicines available in the Hong Kong market generally fall into two categories in terms of their ingredients. One type is “antitussives” that suppress the part of the central nervous system responsible for controlling coughing, specifically targeting dry coughs. The other type is “expectorants” that stimulate the respiratory cilia and mucous membranes, promoting increased secretion of moisture in the airways to thin the phlegm, making it easier to cough up and reducing the stimulation caused by phlegm, thus alleviating the urge to cough.

Therefore, when using cough medicine, it is essential to be aware that expectorants can stimulate the airways, causing patients with dry coughs to cough even more. Conversely, antitussives can prevent patients with phlegm-related coughs from effectively clearing their airways, leading to the accumulation of phlegm and increased discomfort. Common antitussive medications aim to suppress stimulation at various receptor sites to reduce coughing.

The Most Common Ingredients in Cough Syrup:

《Dextromethorphan》

  1. Belongs to a class of opioid derivatives that can suppress the cough center in the brain, reducing the frequency and intensity of coughing and temporarily relieving cough symptoms.
  2. When taken at therapeutic doses, it acts on the cough center in the brainstem, inhibiting the reflex that triggers coughing without affecting ciliary activity.

《Codeine》

  1. Belongs to opioid derivatives that suppress the cough center in the brainstem (long-term use can lead to addiction).
  2. It quickly exhibits cough-suppressing effects by directly inhibiting the cough center in the brainstem, resulting in a strong cough-suppressing effect. It also suppresses bronchial gland secretions, making mucus thicker and harder to cough up, so it is not suitable for patients with excessive phlegm.
  3. Side effects include central respiratory depression, inhibition of intestinal motility, and potential for addiction.

《Noscapine》

  1. Belongs to centrally acting cough suppressants, primarily inhibiting the cough center in the brainstem. This drug is related to one of the alkaloids in opium called Papaverine and can suppress cough reflexes.
  2. Its cough-suppressing effects are similar to codeine (dihydrocodeine), but it does not cause addiction and is suitable for paroxysmal cough.

《Pholcodeine》

  1. Belongs to opioid-class drugs used to relieve dry cough (nonproductive cough) caused by common cold and bronchial irritation. By reducing the activity in certain areas of the brain that trigger coughing, it can decrease the sensation of needing to cough.
  2. Common side effects include drowsiness, constipation, nausea, and vomiting.

The term “expectorants” or “mucolytics” is more accurate for what is commonly referred to as “phlegm-reducing medication.” These two types of medications have different pharmacological mechanisms but ultimately aim to promote the elimination of phlegm and reduce coughing.

《Acetylcysteine》

  1. It is a mucolytic agent that can break the disulfide bonds in mucoproteins, reducing the viscosity of mucus and making it easier to expectorate.

《Bromhexine》

  1. It stimulates mucus secretion and has a mucolytic effect on the bronchi, reducing mucus viscosity and activating ciliated epithelium to promote mucus clearance.

《Ambroxol》

  1. It is an active metabolite of bromhexine and has excellent expectorant effects.
