Can Ambroxol And Antihistamine Be Taken Together?
Hello …. I am 27 years old and you ask my child to be 3 years old every night his nose is blocked even though he doesn’t have a cold but if you have a cold cough for 5 days, can you give cetirizine (ozen) u0026amp; ambroxol (mucos) simultaneously ???? thank you

Cetirizin is an antihistamine class of drugs that can be used to treat colds. It works by inhibiting mucous production and swelling (edema) of the mucosa in the nose and airway. It also can reduce the sensation of itching in the throat that triggers coughing.
Ambroxol is a mucolytic drug, a drug that works to thin the phlegm so that the phlegm becomes runny and can be easily removed. Ambroxol is used to treat cough with phlegm. Thus, the respiratory tract becomes more open and feels relieved.
The drug ambroxol and cetirizin can be given together, for children aged limited to 2 years. As long as the child is not allergic to any of these drugs. However, consider whether coughing up phlegm? Does the child can cough out phlegm? If you are not sure, you should consult first with the nearest doctor. So that children can get drugs that are appropriate to their symptoms. You need to pay attention, that in children who have not been able to expel phlegm, administration of cough type ambroxol should be avoided. Because phlegm that becomes watery can enter the lower airway instead of going out.
Related to complaints of frequent nasal congestion, this can be a symptom of the disease below:
1. Allergic rhinitis
2. Nasal polyps
3. Vasomotor rhinitis
To find out what really happened, you should check your child to the ENT specialist huh. In order to get further examination and handling.
Thus hopefully useful.
