Brief Answer: A brochdilator with mucolytic syp Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Please use a mucolytic with bronchodilator (Syp. Ascoril) two TSF thrice daily along with Cap. Ocid (Omeprazole) 20 twice daily before meals for five days along with steam inhalation. Avoid exposure to dust, smoke and cold. In case fever appears, you may need to start antibiotics, otherwise this will suffice. Feel free to ask another query. Regards
