Omnitus is a medicinal product in the form of a syrup, which is used for dry cough of various genesis (acute respiratory diseases, influenza, pertussis), as well as for suppressing the cough reflex in pre- and postoperative period, during the operation, in preparation for instrumental examination of respiratory system.
All drugs that can cure dry cough are classified according to their mechanism of action. Thus, there are 2 large groups of substances:
Acting directly on the cough center itself, which is in the medulla oblongata.
The acting are mediated through a local anesthetic effect or by turning off the sensitivity of cough receptors.
The first group of substances is divided into narcotic and non-narcotic drugs from cough. Narcotic representatives belong to the morphine group: morphine itself, codeine, dextromethorphan, dionine. Non-narcotics means:
butamate - preparations Kodelak Neo, Omnitus, Panathus, Panathus forte, Sinecod, Stoptussin (in combination with guaifenesin);
glaucin (in combination with ephedrine and basil oil) - Bronholitin, Bronhitusen Vramed, Bronchocin, Bronchoton;
Oxeladine - Paxeladine, Tusuprex.
The second group includes local anesthetics (lidocaine, the antitussive effect of which, when inhaled, significantly exceeds anesthetics) and antitussives with a mixed type of action (reducing the sensitivity of cough receptors).
The main component of Omnitus syrup - butamirate, which is an antitussive drug of central action, is similar in structure to oxeladin (active substance of Tusuprex, Paxeladin). It has a direct inhibitory effect on the cough center of the brain, as a result of which the cough reflex decreases. Also, the drug has a bronchodilator, expectorant and anti-inflammatory effect. When applied, Omnitus reduces the resistance of the airways and improves the functional parameters of breathing, and also increases the level of oxygen saturation of the blood.
The drug has nothing to do with antitussive drugs based on codeine and is dispensed without a doctor's prescription.
