Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you should try mucolytic and expectorant drugs.
Syrup containing ambroxol, terbutaline, guafenesin is easily available.
Oral N acetyl cystine (NAC) twice a day is आलू having mucolytic properties.
Try these drugs and see for improvement.
