What Is Benzonatate Used For?

Can Children Use It?

Benzonatate is approved for use in children as young as 10 years old. Talk with your healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using benzonatate in children.
 
Never give benzonatate to a child who is unable to swallow tablets or capsules, as this medication must be swallowed whole. Chewing it or sucking it can lead to serious complications. Make sure your child takes the medication correctly.
 

Is Benzonatate Used for Off-Label Reasons?

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than treating a cough (this would be known as an "off-label" use). At this time, there are no universally accepted off-label benzonatate uses.
