Hi there ~
I understand your concerns. Dexpoten syrup is a combined preparation of dextromethorphan
and triprolidine. Dextromethorphan is a cough supperssant which has a central action on the cough centre in the medulla. Pseudoephedrine in the syrup is an effective upper respiratory decongestant which produces its decongestant effect within 30 minutes which lasts for at least 4 hours, and is also the addictive component of this medication. Triprolidine provides symptomatic relief of allergic rhinitis
and common cold. Excessive use of this medication can hamper your appetite and sleep, while your physical health declines. Please consult a substance abuse
specialist or a psychiatrist
to get help from the addiction. You may also need inpatient admission to help deal with the chronic dependence on this medication.
I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
