Good evening, my doctor prescribed me bromhexine syrup but due to unavailability chemist substituted that with piriton expectorant (chlorpheniramine maleate+ammonium chloride+sodium citrate expectorant, which was previously banned by govt. But now ban has been lifted. Can I take piriton instead of bromhexine syrup?

Inhalers are must in the treatment of asthma. Do not stop them until suggested by a doctor. You can take expectorant along with inhalers.

I am getting cough with phlegm and some times dry cough for 10 days. It is very high. I used the drugs containing guaifenesin, phenylephrine, chlorpheniramine, and antibiotics azithromycin and levofloxacin and also amoxicillin. But I didn't get any result. I am 50 years old and I am a diabetic patient. Due to this cough my BP level increasing and urine leakage also occur at the time of coughing. Please suggest any other treatment please please.

Dear It is essential for you to improve your immunity and lung health to protect you from the conditions leading to this situation. Allergic reactions to dust or air borne mites (in AC environment is common) or some foods also leads to accumulation of kappha leading to this. It may not be infection at all. So no type of antibiotic helps. Please take capsule Reimmugen (healthsolutions. Net.in) that will modulate and strengthen immunity. If medicines are not helping, please do not take as they will only increase the toxic/side effects that are difficult for anyone, especially diabetics. Regards.

Expectorants help thin mucus, making it easier to cough up. The ingredient guaifenesin is the only expectorant in the U.S., so look for it on the label if you need an expectorant. Suppressants help cut the number of times you cough. The active ingredient listed is usually dextromethorphan (DM).

Chlorpheniramine may cause sedation. There are better medications with lesser side effects for that.
