Product details

Robitussin Dry Cough Medicine provides you with effective dry cough relief and chest decongestion. It works to soothe a sore throat and coughing, with the effects lasting for up 8 hours.

This cough syrup is sugar-free, non-drowsy and taken orally.

What are the Symptoms of a Dry Cough?

A dry cough, or unproductive cough, is when coughing produces little or no phlegm. Dry coughs are often caused by inflammation in the upper airways, and can also be triggered by dust, foreign bodies, or infection.

These can be persistent and very uncomfortable, especially if you struggle to sleep. It is why customers use Robitussin. 

How does Robitussin Work?

Robitussin Dry Cough Medicine helps relieve dry/persistent coughing by suppressing the urge to cough. It relaxes and soothes your throat.
