Featured: Cough Medicine and Cough Syrups Main Article

Cough medicine and cough syrups can be taken to relive a cough. Some people should not take cough medicine or cough syrups, for example, those taking SSRI antidepressants, and those with high blood pressure or heart disease. Cough suppressants relive a cough by blocking the cough reflex. Cough expectorants thins mucus, so a person can cough mucus up easier. Often, a combination of a cold and cough medicine are necessary.
