Hi doctor, wanted to know if syrup levolin is used to treat asthma in children or it is a normal cough syrup too. my son is 4.5 yr old. he had viral fever with throat infection last week. fever had subsided and the reddishness of the throat was better but not completely gone. Yesterday, his body was warm again and he had cough too. so, doc prescribed levolin syrup along with the same medicines he had given for his viral fever.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
Levolin contains levosalbutamol which is a bronchodilator and is used to treat asthma to relieve the bronchospasm.
Levolin syrup is used as a cough syrup where the cough is associated with bronchospam and associated wheezing on lung auscultation.
Hope I have answered your query.
