Waiting for your reply…
Thank you for the quick reply.
Benzonatate is a nonnarcotic cough suppressant. It works in the airway and lungs to reduce the cough reflex. This helps to relieve cough.
Sometimes the cough lasts for several weeks.This is because the bronchial tree is taking a long time to heal.Use a humidifier to help keep the air moist and your sputum thin. This makes it easier to cough up the sputum.
Yes,you can take other cough medications such as mucinex cough syrup. It contains an expectorant called guaifenesin that helps to help loosen the phlegm and make it easier to cough up from the airways.It is available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly in treating cough & relieving the chest congestion.
Hope this helped
