Benzonatate is indicated for cough. Suppresses cough through a peripheral action, anesthetizing the stretch or cough receptors of vagal afferent fibers, which are located in the respiratory passages, lungs, and pleura; also, may suppress transmission of the cough reflex by a central mechanism, at the level of the medulla. Benzonatate suppresses cough through a peripheral action, anesthetizing the stretch or cough receptors of vagal afferent fibers, which are located in the respiratory passages, lungs, and pleura. Benzonatate suppress transmission of the cough reflex by a central mechanism, at the level of the medulla in the brain. When applied locally, benzonatate has anesthetic effects by binding within the intracellular portion of voltage-gated sodium channels, decreasing the rate of membrane depolarization and increasing the threshold for electrical excitability. Unlike narcotics, benzonatate has no inhibitory effects on the respiratory center.
