New labelling for usage of cough and cold medicines in children
Following a review of active ingredients in cough and cold medicines by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), all major cough and many cold products are to transition their labelling to indicate that the products are not to be used for children under 6 years of age. For children between 6 and 12 years of age, the advice of a pharmacist, doctor or nurse practitioner should initially be sought before giving the products.
This change will occur for labelling of Bisolvon products sold in pharmacies over a 12 month period from June 2012. Please note there has been no change in the products themselves, no change to where you can buy them and no change to the adult dosing.
As with all other medicines, it is important to take note of the instructions on the label and only use the products as directed. You should read labels carefully, strictly follow all the directions and, if symptoms persist, consult a pharmacist, doctor or nurse practitioner.
How does Bisolvon Dry Pastilles work?
Bisolvon Dry Pastilles contain the active ingredient dextromethorphan hydrobromide, a cough suppressant that acts on the cough-reflex centre in the brain to stop the urge to cough. The honey-lime flavoured smooth pastille provides a soothing experience as it dissolves slowly in the mouth.
Bisolvon Dry Pastilles goes to work fast, calming the urge to cough within an hour and lasts up to 6 hours.
