Tessalin review





Tessalin, a non-narcotic cough suppressant or antitussive, is used to treat and reduce coughing in respiratory conditions such as the acute coryza, bronchitis, inflammatory illness of the lung, emphysema and even asthma as well as infections such as the cold, flu, or tuberculosis, and conditions such as emphysema, or bronchitis among others. This medicament is an anesthetic and suppresses the coughing symptoms by blocking the action of stretch receptors in the throat. Available in softgel capsules, it is recommended to swallow the capsules whole in order to allow slower release of the medicament that reduces the compulsion to cough with each breath.

Tessalin is not prone to abuse like some other cough medicaments such as codeine or dextromethorpan. Each capsule is yellow in color and contains 100mg of the active ingredient.

The usual dosage for adults and children over 10 years of age is about 100 mg taken 3 times a day, with a maximum of up to 6 times each day, but you will always follow your physician's specific instructions if they differ. Do not chew or suck the capsule because this will cause it to disrupt the absorption process of the medicament. Numbness in the mouth can result and cause choking or even severe allergic reaction in sensitive patients.

Side effects associated with Tessalin include stomach upsets such as constipation, drowsiness and dizziness, headaches, a stuffy nose or a burning sensation in the eyes. Consult your physician if you experience any of these conditions and they persist.

Some side effects are more serious than others. Immediately contact your physician if you experience any rash, hives or other allergic reactions, a difficult time breathing or swallowing, mental confusion or hallucination. Some side effects may result from absorbing too much Tessalin in the mouth and require immediate medical attention.

When capsules are chewed or allowed to dissolve in the mouth, numbness of the mouth and throat will develop rapidly. Symptoms of restlessness and tremors may be followed by convulsions and may lead to an overdosage of the medicament. Some cases of abuse of Tessalin have resulted in death. In the event of an overdosage or symptoms of an overdosage, seek immediate medical attention.

Increased sensitivity to the anesthetic effects of the para-aminobenzoic acid class such as procaine and tetracaine can also cause negative effects to the central nervous system when taking Tessalin. Severe sensitivity to the medicament has caused bronchospasm, laryngospasm and cardiovascular collapse in some cases, which also resulted from sucking on to the capsules or breaking them inside the mouth. A general mental confusion and hallucination have been observed in overdosage cases. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.

Tessalin's effects on the developing fetus have yet to be determined, and tests on the carcinogenic effects of this medicament have not been administered. It is also unknown whether this medicament is released in breast milk, so mothers who are breastfeeding need to consult with their physician before taking this medicament. Use for children under 10 years of age has not been thoroughly studied. Due to this, consult your physician before administering this medicament to a child under the age of 10.
