Tomephen (Dextromethorphan)
Therapeutic Group: Respiratory » Cough Suppressant

Tomephen Syrup: Each 5 ml of syrup contains Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide BP 10 mg.

Dextromethorphan is the d-isomer of the codeine analog of levorphanol, but does not have any opiate-like effects. It is a non-narcotic antitussive. Its cough suppressant action is due to a central action on the cough center in the medulla. Dextromethorphan does not induce tolerance, and has no potential for addiction like opiates.
Dextromethorphan is used to relieve dry cough caused by a cold, flu or other conditions.
