What kind of cough does Doctor Mom treat?
The use of plant lozenges Doctor Mom - a symptomatic approach to the treatment of patients with diseases of the respiratory system.

Alone herbal remedy does not provide a full recovery of the patient with the exception of mild forms of tracheitis or laryngitis.
The effectiveness of Doctor Mom cough lozenges is due to the complex effect of the components of the drug:
Licorice root enhances the secretory function of the bronchial glands. Sputum liquefies and is more easily excreted from the respiratory tract;
Ginger rhizome extract reduces the activity of the inflammatory process and suppresses the vomiting reflex. Local vasoconstriction with a decrease in the migration of bioactive substances that support the course of pathological reactions is noted;
the emblica reduces the severity of inflammation and eliminates fever. The fruits additionally contain flavonoids, vitamin C, carotene, trace elements - magnesium, potassium and others. Due to these substances, immunity is nonspecifically strengthened;
menthol reduces the sensitivity of the mucous membrane, eliminates the mechanical factors that cause a reflex cough. The mechanism of action is a distracting effect on the superficial nerve endings.

Important! Doctor Mom cough lozenges for children are not prescribed. The manufacturer did not conduct appropriate studies to assess the effect of the drug on the child's body.
In rare cases, despite the ban in the instructions, doctors use lozenges to treat baby cough.

However, the appointment is carried out only after consulting a doctor when assessing the ratio of risk and benefit from taking the drug. For children under 3 years old, Doctor Mom in the appropriate form is absolutely contraindicated because of the risk of ingestion of pressed sucrose with the development of suffocation.
