Kindly note that there are medicines available to help you quit corex addiction. Also, once you are addicted to something, it is not possible to quit, despite of having strong will (which may be distressing or dangerous if tried). Consult a psychiatrist for further details.

Hi,
Thanks for query,
Not only corex but any cough suppressant syrup taken for long time gives addiction.
So quit taking corex,there is no medicine available in the market which help to quit this syrup.
Decide that you are not going to take corex,have strong will, you will quit.
I do not think it produce impotence but it may produce lethargy to sex as with other addict producing drinks.
ok and bye,
