Cough medicines and cough syrups are ineffective in relation to chronic or persistent cough. Best cough suppressants are natural chemicals: carbon dioxide and nasal nitric oxide generated in human sinuses. Unlike opioids and other strong medicines, each of them does not have side effects and is more potent suppressant of coughing in comparison with cough syrups, as Dr. Artour Rakhimov explains.

One immediate effect of lo2 CO2 in the lungs is bronchospasm or constriction of smooth muscles in airways. More about bronchospasm from this page:.

Reduced concentrations of CO2 in airways and alveoli overexcite nervous cells causing their irritability. Urge-to-cough nerve receptors are also irritated due to hypocapnia (low CO2). Additional factors such as allergy triggers, extra mucus, inflammation or airways, breathing cold air through the mouth, respiratory infections, and so on also worsen chronic coughing. This is because urge-to-cough nerve receptors are located in the tracheobronchial tree and larynx and are highly sensitive to slight changes in CO2 (as small as 1-2 mm Hg).

Increased or normal levels of carbon dioxide are able to calm down urge-to-cough receptors and improve O2 transport to body tissues due to its vasodilatory effects. In addition, CO2 enhances the Bohr effect improving oxygen release in tissues.

Nitric oxide is another cough suppressant. It is a powerful disinfectant of the airways and lungs. Therefore, mouth breathing produces a negative effect on the immune defenses in the lungs and airways causing more respiratory infections, more medication and other cough medicines, like cough syrups.
