Greetings doctor … I want to ask, about cough medicines that contain antitussive, expectorant and antihistamine as well. in what kind of cough condition can this drug be used? are these drugs effective and not contradictory? if it’s not effective, why is it on the market huh? thanks doctor …

1 Answer:

Hi Lisa,


Antitussive is a component that serves to suppress the desire to cough through several systems in the body.


Expectorant is a component that helps thin and expel phlegm from the airway, which can be a slightly liquid to thick discharge.


Antihistamines are a component that works by blocking the receptors of histamine. Histamine is a substance that mediates inflammation, allergic reactions, dilation of blood vessels and causes itching or sneezing.


Looking at the components that are in the same drug content, these ingredients are effective for treating phlegm cough when used in the right dosage. It is advisable to continue to consult with a doctor before taking combination drugs or coughing felt permanent / getting worse.


Hopefully this information helps you,


Regards.
