Tessalon Perle (Benzonatate)

I have coughing spells due to adult-onset tree allergies, and this works GREAT. I use it in the spring, just until the oak and elm trees in my yard stop pollinating.

Amazing this worked so fast for these two other people. I've had three doses so far and just had a coughing spell so bad I was choking. It lasted for about 10 mins, but I've had no side affects. 63 yr old female

This was a life-saver for me when I had bronchitis that led to (apparently?) adult-onset asthma for which I'm now on Advair, etc.
I was prescribed this (also called Tussalon pearls) in conjunction with an Albuterol inhaler. It was wonderful for being able to breathe, and the night I had these was the first I could breathe.
I think the body eventually gets used to it, and normally I might take doses closer together, but I would not mess with that w/this, as you could depress lung function. You may feel a weird, but in some ways kind of cool sensation in your upper bronchial area when you first swallow it.
Now I only take it when I really really need it (though I wish I could take it more because I miss its relief) because I think my body is used to it a little.
It is supposed to work anywhere from 3-8 hours in someone, and there's really no way to know how long it will work in you, so they can't prescribe you to take it any more frequently than 8 hours. I have had no side effects that I am aware of.
