Traditional Chinese medicine knowledge: do not misuse cough syrup

Anhui medical examination network

Many parents think it is traditional Chinese medicine, with fewer side effects than western medicine and less harm to children. Syrup is also sweet, and children don't hate drinking it, which is more convenient than those who have to chase the runner hard to drink it. And the effect is very apparent indeed, the child still coughs a few days ago quite badly, running snot, drank did not have a few days good. So I use it all the time.

But some parents also wonder, how their children to drink cough syrup is not good, some have aggravated instead?

Well, at the end of the day, cough syrup is a treatment for cough, but not for any type of cough.

We first look at the drug composition of a certain brand of cough syrup: houttuynia, golden buckwheat, evergreen, ephedra, knotweed, fructus aurantii, liquorice. The taste of houttuynia is cold, heat clearing and detoxification. Golden buckwheat flavor sweet and bitter cold, heat and detoxification, blood circulation. Aster soaks up sputum. Anterior husk reduces air, reduces phlegm and stops coughing; Green leaves cool the blood; Fructus aurantii travel in the width of gas; Ephedra for relieving cough and asthma; Licorice cough dispelling phlegm, harmonizing drugs.

Many of these drugs are cold and cold in nature, playing a role in clearing heat, that is to say, the most important role of cough syrup is to clear heat and reduce phlegm, promote lung to stop cough, and treat the cough caused by external wind heat. Typical features of this type of cough are thick or yellow cough sputum, accompanied by nasal discharge and yellowish nose, pharyngeal pain, dry mouth, fever, mild wind chill. In this case, cough syrup is often effective.

The typical features of a cough are thin white phlegm, a runny nose, a cold phobia and a mild fever. This type of cough is often caused by an external wind chill, and these cold medicines in cough syrup are not right, and may even make the condition worse.

Therefore, we should be aware of the symptoms targeted by drugs and should not be hearsay. Cough syrup is prohibited for those who suffer from cold cough.

Also take cough syrup should be careful to avoid smoke, wine and spicy, cold, greasy food. It is not advisable to take nourishing Chinese medicine at the same time. If it is bronchiectasis, pulmonary abscess, pulmonary heart disease, tuberculosis patients cough should go to the hospital in time.
