Treatment For Asthma.?
Afternoon, want to ask why yes mucolytic medicine is not recommended for asthmatics? why only expectorant? then if the expectorant-mucolytic drug is given or not? thank you
Hello, Ms. pearl A. Majid, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Basically, asthma is a condition where there is a narrowing of the respiratory tract due to an increase in the sensitivity of the airways to certain substances (allergens). Usually people with asthma have a history of allergies or a family history of asthma or other allergies. And asthma conditions can recur due to strenuous physical activity, such as stress, fatigue, infection, exposure to dust, cold, or pollen.
Both types of cough medicine have the same principle of sputum thinner but have a different way of sputum dilution. And of course it will have different side effects. Expectorant is a drug that stimulates expectoration of phlegm from the respiratory tract by stimulating the gastric mucous membrane and reflexively stimulates the secretion of respiratory glands through the vagus nerve, thereby reducing the viscosity of phlegm and phlegm can be easily removed. While the mucolytic group is a drug that works by thinning the respiratory secretions by breaking the threads that form sputum. Mucolytic agents function by changing the viscosity of sputum through the action of kumia directly on the binding of mucoprotein components.
Both are drugs that can be used for asthma cases, but of course their use is adapted to the condition of the patient, expectorant drugs are not recommended for use in asthmatics with stomach disorders. We recommend that you use the drug in advance with your doctor directly, so that you are also examined carefully and the doctor can choose a cough medicine that suits your respiratory tract conditions. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information is useful for you. thank you
