We all know how to protest and whims from children when parents are trying to give them a pill in her mouth during illness. Yes, and some adult people have a dislike for tablet drugs. But what to do if the cough suffers? In this case, sweet and tasty medicine will come to the rescue - syrup. But the syrups so much, what of them choose that the cough quickly retreated?
Cough is different
First we will talk a little about cough. It can be a symptom of dozens of different diseases. Dry, exhausting, chasing or wet, sometimes with difficultly expectant sputum; parry, occurring periodically or permanent. Even the boring cough occurs, in which the respiratory tract is squeezed, which threatens to suffocate ... when coughing there is a reduction in the muscles of the diaphragm and chest, starting in response to irritation in the respiratory tract of sensitive receptors. Cough is most often an unpleasant satellite of breathing organs. I will list some of them: angina, laryngitis, pharyngitis, ORVI, tracheobronchitis, pneumonia, bronchitis. As a rule, in the first days of the inflammatory process, cough is dry. Later joins Mokrota. It can be mucous or even purulent. The presence of a pus in the exudate is found at COPD (so abbreviatedly called chronic obstructive diseases of the lungs), in common - «Disease of smokers». I also note that avid smokers, as they say, «with experience», Cough has its own distinctive signs: he arises in the morning when a person from a long stay in a horizontal position goes into vertical. At the same time, the mucus flowing accumulated over the long night, in respiratory tract to bronchi, which leads to their irritation. And the cough happens at cores, for example, in chronic heart failure. Their cough is accompanied by the release of transparent liquid sputum. There are people who cough when worry and nervous. An experienced doctor, not even seeing the patient, but hearing his cough, can put the correct diagnosis, because with a number of diseases there are bright characteristic features of this symptom. During the cough cough, the cough is so strong that it provokes vomiting, while the patient after one protracted attack does breathe, but he again overtakes the next attack.
And now let's get to the recommendations for choosing that saving syrup, which will be able to get rid of the tormenting cough.
Overview of some syrups from the pharmacy
Before proceeding with the story and show of syrups, our site wants to warn your readers: there is still no such magical tool, which for a couple of days will eliminate the cough for a long time. If the process was protracted, relief will come, but the residual phenomena will still be saved for a while - it already depends on many circumstances. Cough - the process is complex, different factors are started, dozens of mechanisms are involved in it, it is suppressed by the production of alone substances and producing other connections. With different diseases, cough requires approaches that differ from each other. So remember that advertised drugs are not a magic wand. The main thing is to choose the desired strategy and gradually move to recovery. If the sputum moves quite well, then you should not take antitussive drugs, because the respiratory tract should be cleaned. In such cases, expectorant drugs will be suitable, which will help quickly wet. But if the cough is unproductive, suffocating, then here we need the means that will be suppressed. If the medicine contains synthesized actants, then carefully read contraindications. Pay attention to the composition if you have a predisposition to Allergies.
