it seems to be bronchitis
Do you have difficulty breathing?
Do you gasp for a breath at night
yes during snoring it happens
You will need medicines
what kind of medicine .do i need to go under some test?
You will also need some medicine to help with difficulty breathing
It will help with excessive secretions and will provide some relief
deriphylline is a bronchodilator
It can have some side-effects
there are other bronchodilators that can be used
best are inhalers
but doctor has not informed about this he just told me take this to control coughing
It does help with cough
what do you suggest doctor?
In would suggest that you pulmonologist and see what he has to say
Pulmonologist are specialists in lung problems
I think you will need antibiotics+anti-allergic+a bronchodilator inhaler
Also take nutritious diet and exercise daily to boost immunity
The medicines like inhaler and other cough and cold formulas are to be taken only if symptoms are present
Do you have a question here?
yes what symptoms ?
Symptoms like cough suppressants only if cough there
anti-allergics only if secretions present
bronchodilator only if breathing difficulty present
Antibiotics are to be taken if nothing else works and sputum looks weird colour
