Infirst Healthcare has launched a pharmacy-only cough syrup, designed to treat all types of cough.
Unicough launched this month and works by addressing the hypersensitivity of the cough reflex, which makes it suitable for dry, tickly and chesty coughs, the manufacturer said.
A randomised study of 163 patients co-ordinated by King’s College Hospital, London, found that the cocoa-based formulation was more effective at reducing the frequency of coughs and the disrupted sleep caused by coughs than simple linctus, Infirst Healthcare said.
The manufacturer expects the launch to “reshape the approach to acute common coughs”. A 150ml bottle retails at £8.85.
