With the onset of the cold season in each house, the first-aid kit is replenished with more and more cough drops. But I would like these bubbles to be replaced by one good and high-quality syrup, which will help with wet and dry coughing and will suit all family members. Dzhoset is such a drug, the active substances in its composition help to relieve the lungs from the accumulated thick sputum and relieve coughing.
Its price does not exceed 200 rubles.
When should syrup be taken?
This drug has a variety of indications. The main ones include:
- bronchial asthma
- diseases of the respiratory system due to ingestion of industrial dust
- pulmonary tuberculosis
- violation of the reduction of lung tissue
- bronchial inflammation
- Chronical bronchitis
- chronic lung disease caused by external factors (smoking, polluted by air, the presence of harmful substances in it).
Dzhoset is a potent drug, so before you start taking it, you should consult your doctor, especially if it is a child’s health.
Self-medication may cause side effects or allergic reactions.
What is included in the syrup?
The main active ingredients of the drug are:
- salbutamol sulfate (prevents coughing)
- bromhexine hydrochloride (effectively dilutes sputum, which makes it easier for her to leave the lungs)
- guaifenesin (supplements the effect of bromhexine, used when coughing with difficult to separate sputum)
- levomenthol (eliminates cough and reduces pain and irritation in the throat).
What are the contraindications of the drug?
First of all, the drug should not be taken in patients with hepatic or renal failure, peptic ulcer disease and diabetes.
The absolute contraindications include the period of pregnancy and lactation, sensitivity to the components of the drug.
If the patient has heart disease, such as, for example, acceleration of the heart rate (from 100 to 400 beats per minute), inflammation of the heart muscle, violation of the outflow of blood from the ventricles, then Joset should not be taken. Also, doctors do not recommend syrup if the patient has high intraocular pressure or high levels of thyroid hormones.
How to take joset?
Together with the syrup in the package has a glass with graduations, which is convenient to measure the desired dose for oral administration. As the instructions, it is better to take the syrup after a meal and drink water.
Children from birth to 6 years of age should drink 5 ml (equivalent to 1 teaspoon) three times a day. If the child is from 6 to 12 years old, then a single dose is 5-10 ml.
Older children and adults should drink 10 ml 3 times a day.
Do not drink Djoset drinks containing soda, mineral water, sour mors and juices.
If you are taking other drugs, tell your doctor. Some combinations are hazardous to health.
For example, in combination with drugs for asthma, heart palpitations may occur. Antidepressants cause a sharp drop in blood pressure.
Combination with other drugs can also give the opposite effect. For example, an agent containing codeine (antitussive substance) may make it difficult to expectorate sputum.
Diuretic drugs and glucocorticosteroids (hormones that relieve inflammation and pain) together with syrup lead to the weakening or paralysis of some muscles.
What side effects can Joset cause?
Side effects are quite rare, but if you notice their presence, you should inform your doctor.
The doctor must control the treatment process so that no further complications arise.
Common side effects include:
- cramps and tremor (sharp muscle contractions, as if the person is shaking)
- increased nervous irritability
- nausea and vomiting
- violation of the chair
- exacerbation of an existing ulcer
- violation of heart rhythm and lower blood pressure.
A pinkish color of urine was noted by some patients. This is due to the presence of guaifenesin in syrup.
Also, a reaction to Joset in the form of a rash, itching and redness on the skin has sometimes been encountered.
Oksana, 29 years old: “My son often has colds, and his neck first of all suffers. Every time we, me and my child, take the Djoset syrup.
The cold passes quickly and never causes complications. ”
Ekaterina, 35 years old: “Dzhoset syrup is the main assistant for strong coughing episodes in our family. We use it for a long time, because it is inexpensive and very effective. “
Natalya, 27 years old: “Until I read the reviews about the drug, Djoset took Ascoril for coughing. It costs 2 times more, but the effect is the same. ”
