Since 1956, Scot-Tussin has been an innovator in the formulation of sugar-free and alcohol-free cough syrup (cough suppressant) medications. All Scot-Tussin products can be used by typical and diabetic consumers, as well as other special needs populations (e.g., heart disease, celiac disease, and/or hypertension). As a result, Scot-Tussin cough suppressant products have received recommendations from generations of doctors and pharmacists. S.G. Scotti, the company’s founder and a diabetic himself, coined the phrase “sugar-free” in the 1950s. Besides being sugar-free, the formulations are also free of gluten, lactose, sodium, and dye.

Scot-Tussin Diabetes Cough Syrup contains the active ingredient dextromethorphan hydrobromide (HBr), a powerful cough suppressant. Each 10 mL dose (2 teaspoons) of this cough syrup contains 20 mg Dextromethorphan HBr. As a result, this sugar-free/diabetic cough syrup is a cough suppressant liquid capable of temporarily calming a dry cough resulting from minor throat or airway irritation. Therefore, Scot-Tussin Diabetes Cough Syrup is the ideal cough suppressant solution for adults and children ages 12 and up seeking relief from a dry, hacking cough. The dosage for this sugar-free cough syrup is 10 mL (2 teaspoons) every 4 hours, and should not exceed 6 doses in a 24-hour period.
