Brief Answer:
Normal saline nebulization is usually sufficient

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Healthcaremagic.

It would be best to give nebulization with normal saline (0.9% NaCl). You can give it every 4 hours. Give nebulization with Levolin (Levosalbutamol) 0.63mcg 6 hourly only if there is wheezing or respiratory distress. Continue to give Sinarest. Nothing else needs to be given.

You might like to discuss the treatment with her treating physician.

Let me know if I could help further.

Regards
