Market Definition

Cough suppressants, often known as antitussives, are drugs that prevent coughing. Although the specific mechanism of action is uncertain, antitussives are hypothesized to work by blocking a coordinating area for coughing in the brain stem, so breaking the cough reflex arc. Opioids are the source of many antitussives, including pholcodine, codeine, and dextromethorphan.

According to the same source, the global annual prevalence of cough in the general population is estimated to be between 10% and 33%.
