Cough medicine with codeine
Codeine and cough an ineffective gold standard

The opioid codeine has been a mainstay in the treatment of cough for decades and this drug is widely regarded as the 'gold standard' cough suppressant.

The holarchy hypothesis may help account for the inconsistencies in the literature regarding codeine. A holarchical model that is consistent with available data is shown in Fig. 1. One or more suprapontine pathways may represent higher order holons in the system. Their influence would not be manifest in animal models that are anesthetized or decerebrated. Indeed, the extent to which animals can experience sensations during cough is unknown. On the other hand, awake guinea pigs can be conditioned to cough in response to innocuous odors which supports the concept that complex suprapontine control mechanisms exist in animals.
