Coughing seems to be one of the most common symptoms. It is rarely taken seriously, so it may not complicate the general condition of a person.
However, in some cases, a cough indicates a serious illness requiring long-term treatment. This symptom develops in various pathologies of the respiratory system.
To establish the cause of cough, perform an examination. The most important treatment is to identify and eliminate the source of the disease. However, symptomatic therapy is also important.
It is especially necessary for a long and painful cough.
The drug Fluditek helps to deal with this symptom. He dilutes the sputum and relieves the patient.
As a remedy for cough Flyuditek can be used not only adults but also young children. The drug is prescribed regardless of the cause of the unpleasant symptom.
With it, mucous secretion is faster formed and removed from the respiratory tract. As a result, the number of coughing episodes is reduced, and the pain in the throat that accompanies this symptom also decreases.
The drug Vlyuditek incorporates carbocysteine. This substance has been used to treat cough for many years. The drug is available in the form of syrup for children and adults.
The difference between them in the dosage of the drug. The content of carbocysteine in children’s cough syrup Fluditec is 2 grams per 100 ml of the substance.

Some patients ask, on which cough should this drug be used? This drug has a mucolytic, anti-inflammatory and expectorant action, and therefore its use is effective for various types of cough.
