Relieves a dry, irritating cough
Calm a tickly, dry cough quickly during the day and night
When should I use Bisolvon Dry Liquid?
Bisolvon Dry Liquid is used to relieve a dry, irritating cough. When you've got a non-productive cough, the urge to cough can be so strong that it can be almost impossible to sleep, and persistent coughing can leave you feeling exhausted. Fast-acting BisolvonDry Liquid contains the active ingredient dextromethorphan hydrobromide, a cough suppressant that acts on the cough-reflex centre in the brain to stop the urge to cough.
Symptoms of a dry cough

The chest feels clear, without wheezing or congestion
The cough sounds dry
The continuing need to cough may make it hard to sleep at night
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 Liquid work?
The active ingredient in Bisolvon Dry Liquid is dextromethorphan. It provides relief from dry, irritating coughs by suppressing the urge to cough. Bisolvon Dry Liquid goes to work fast, calming the urge to cough within an hour and lasts up to 6 hours. Bisolvon Dry should not be used for a productive chesty cough.
Following the new guidelines for childrens cough cold products, Bisolvon will transition to new packaging over 2012 - 2013. Please refer to the dosage relevant for the pack you have.
Adults and children over 12 years: 5 mL three times a day. This dose can be increased to 10 mL three times a day for the first 7 days.
Use in children 6 - 11 years only on the advice of a doctor, pharmacist or nurse practitioner. Children 6 - 11 years of age: 5 mL three times a day.
Do not use in children under 6 years of age.
Use the measuring cup provided in the carton to measure out the correct dose.
The active ingredient is dextromethorphan hydrobromide.
