Pharmacological properties


Codelac phyto is one of the combined antitussive drugs. Its action is due to the properties of active ingredients:

  • licorice: due to the content of glycyrrhizin, it has an expectorant effect. Against the background of its application, the activity of the ciliated epithelium in the bronchi and trachea is stimulated and the secretory function of the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract is enhanced. In addition, licorice root has an antispasmodic effect on smooth muscles (due to flavonoid compounds), anti-inflammatory effect (manifests itself as suppression of inflammatory reactions caused by bradykinin, serotonin, histamine), as well as a glucocorticosteroid-like effect (due to metabolic transformations of glycyrrhizic acid);
  • thermopsis: has a pronounced expectorant effect, which manifests itself as an increase in the secretory function of the bronchial glands, an increase in the activity of the ciliated epithelium and an acceleration of the evacuation of secretions, an increase in the tone of the smooth muscles of the bronchi (due to the central vagotropic effect). Contains isoquinoline alkaloids that stimulate the respiratory and stimulate the vomiting center;
  • thyme: contains a mixture of essential oils that have an expectorant, bactericidal and anti-inflammatory effect, provided by an increase in the activity of the ciliated epithelium of the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract, an increase in the amount of secreted secretions of the bronchial mucosa, dilution of phlegm, accelerating its evacuation and loosening of inflammatory plaques. Thyme also has a weak antispasmodic and reparative effect;
  • codeine: is an agonist of opioid receptors, phenanthrene series opium alkaloid. Reduces the excitability of the cough center. To a lesser extent than morphine, it inhibits the respiratory center, inhibits intestinal peristalsis. Nausea, vomiting and miosis is less common, but can lead to constipation. When used in small doses, respiratory depression does not cause. In addition, it does not reduce bronchial secretion and does not disrupt the function of the ciliated epithelium. If codeine is used for a long time, or in high doses, drug dependence may occur.

Therapy: gastric lavage. Symptomatic treatment is shown, which is aimed at restoring breathing and cardiovascular activity (including the introduction of atropine, respiratory analeptics, a competitive antagonist of codeine - naloxone).

special instructions

In patients with impaired renal function, the elimination of codeine is slowed down, and therefore it is recommended for this group of patients to lengthen the intervals between single doses.

Simultaneously, Codelac phyto should not be used with mucolytic and expectorant drugs.

Before prescribing antitussives, the cause of the cough should be clarified (due to the possible need for special therapy).

Drinking alcohol during treatment with Kodelak phyto is prohibited.

  • chloramphenicol: the biotransformation of codeine in the liver slows down, which leads to an increase in its action;
  • cardiac glycosides (including digoxin): their effect is enhanced (in combination with large doses of codeine), which is associated with a weakening of intestinal motility and increased absorption of these drugs;
  • adsorbents, coatings and astringents: the absorption of codeine is reduced;
