Abstract

PURPOSE: Cough is one of the most common symptoms of respiratory tract infections and it is a frequent problem encountered in general practice leading to a medical consultation. There are many studies that show the use of NSAIDs for the treatment of cough. Moreover cough often requires treatment with antitussives as it could have a great impact on quality of adults’ life.

Abstract

Experimental studies indicate that airway calibre increases the sensitivity of the afferents involved in the cough reflex but it has proved difficult to demonstrate that airway calibre increases the sensitivity of the afferents involved in the cough reflex.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: 

Cough is produced by the same neuronal pool implicated in respiratory rhythm generation, and antitussive drugs acting at the central level, such as opioids, may depress ventilation. Levodropropizine is classified as a nonopioid peripherally acting antitussive drug that acts at the level of airway sensory nerves. However, the lack of a central action by levodropropizine remains to be fully established. We set out to compare the effects of levodropropizine and the opioid antitussive agent dihydrocodeine on the respiratory responses to a conventional CO2 rebreathing test in patients with chronic cough of any origin.
