Tessalon Perles (benzonatate) is indicated for the symptomatic relief of cough. It acts peripherally by anesthetizing the stretch receptors located in the respiratory passages, lungs, and pleura, thereby reducing the cough reflex at its source. 


  • The dosage of Tessalon Perles is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not take more of this drug than recommended, as doing so will not make your cough go away faster but may result in serious side effects.
  • Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your healthcare provider, usually 3 times daily as needed.
  • Swallow the medication whole. Do not chew, suck, or dissolve the medication in your mouth, as doing so will cause a loss of feeling in your mouth/throat and may cause choking or a severe allergic reaction. Do not eat or drink until the numbness goes away. If the numbness lasts or gets worse, seek medical help right away.
  • If you have any concerns or questions about the dosage and administration of Tessalon Perles, consult your healthcare provider for personalized guidance.
