Clinical Information

Chemical Structure

No Image found
Clinical Pharmacology

Benzonatate acts peripherally by anesthetizing the stretch receptors located in the respiratory passages, lungs, and pleura by dampening their activity and thereby reducing the cough reflex at its source. It begins to act within 15 to 20 minutes and its effect lasts for 3 to 8 hours. Benzonatate has no inhibitory effect on the respiratory center in recommended dosage.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
Hypersensitivity to benzonatate or related compounds.

Severe hypersensitivity reactions (including bronchospasm, laryngospasm and cardiovascular collapse) have been reported which are possibly related to local anesthesia from sucking or chewing the capsule instead of swallowing it. Severe reactions have required intervention with vasopressor agents and supportive measures.

Benzonatate is chemically related to anesthetic agents of the para-aminobenzoic acid class (e.g., procaine; tetracaine) and has been associated with adverse CNS effects possibly related to a prior sensitivity to related agents or interaction with concomitant medication.

Information for the Patient

Release of benzonatate from the capsule in the mouth can produce a temporary local anesthesia of the oral mucosa and choking could occur. Therefore, the capsules should be swallowed without chewing.

Usage in Pregnancy:

Nursing Mothers:

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility:Carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, and reproduction studies have not been conducted with benzonatate.

Pediatric Use:

Potential Adverse Reactions to benzonatate may include:

Hypersensitivity reactions including bronchospasm, laryngospasm, cardiovascular collapse possibly related to local anesthesia from chewing or sucking the capsule.

CNS:

GI:

Dermatologic:

Other:

Rare instances of deliberate or accidental overdose have resulted in death.
