Is The Drug Metronidazole Can Cough Up Phlegm?
want to ask metronidazole bs to treat cough with phlegm?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Metronidazole is a drug that belongs to the class of antibiotics, and serves to deal with infections by bacteria and parasites, both those that are in the reproductive system, digestive tract, skin, heart, bones, joints, lungs, blood, and many more. This drug is included in the category of hard drugs and should not be taken without a prescription and medical supervision.
Regarding your question, if the cough has phlegm due to bacteria or parasites that can be handled by metronidazole, then it may be used. The problem is, without a direct examination, we can not know that, because it will depend on the characteristics of sputum, history of the disease, physical examination results, and much more. If used improperly as intended, taking metronidazole can cause immunity to bacteria, and make bacteria more difficult to eradicate and more severe symptoms.
So we recommend that if you experience a cough with phlegm that is difficult to handle, consult a pulmonary doctor for further examination. Because examples of cough with phlegm include tuberculosis, and tuberculosis drugs not metronidazole. With a direct examination, your condition can be handled appropriately, according to its designation.
Meanwhile, may consume over-the-counter phlegm cough medicine by reading the rules of use listed, consuming warm drinks mixed with ginger, honey or lemon, bathing or soaking with warm water, swimming, and avoiding cigarettes, dust, and pollution. So, hopefully answering your question.
