How to Use Cough Suppressants

A cough suppressant may be useful if your cough is dry, but may not be a good idea if you have secretions to clear. Based on research, dextromethorphan appears to be effective in suppressing a cough. Codeine, though, has not been shown to be as helpful. Talk to your doctor about whether these medications might be useful for you.
