Hi Vimala,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
Magnacef is an antibiotic used for respiratory and general infections.
If you have congested lungs and nose then you should also get medicines prescribed from the doctor which are called decongestants.
The increased doses of Seroflo is okay for congestion.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!

Hallo Vimala.
Secretions that can cause Lung Congestion and Chest Cold and Respiratory Complications. Allergies are one of the biggest contributors to chest mucus. Excessive phlegm or chest mucus is often caused by viral or bacterial infections such as Influenza ,Bronchitis and Pneumonia.
When infections are treated with Antibiotics , the natural balance of the body becomes compromised.
My Advice is
Avoid Dairy products and Salts and Sugars and Cold foods , which can increase mucus production.
Fruits such as Pineapple ,Orange ,Grapefruits have beneficial effects.
Take THALEESADI CHURNAM three times a day with honey.
Take SWASHA KUDORI PILLS twice daily with hot water.
Take VASHARISHTAM 20 ml twice daily.
NASAL DROPS will clear Nasal congestion.
