Cough Spray

Cough aerosols

Aerosol from cough is an effective and high-quality tool that can cope with a cold. Cough itself is a protective reaction to the effect on the body of various factors. Drugs for its elimination are prescribed depending on what kind of cough is observed in the patient.

Indications for use

If the cough is dry, and, accordingly, unproductive, drugs that have the form of a spray will be very helpful. In this format, the drug, sprayed, will fall on the inflamed area, thus having a local effect. This will stop the inflammation and eliminate the symptoms of the disease.

When choosing an aerosol for a cough, you need to pay attention to what kind of cough you have, and what is the reason for its appearance.

Today, there is a huge number of various sprays that help cope with the cough. Therefore, it is obvious that finding a drug that absolutely will suit any person will not be difficult. You can find a medicine that will take into account all your individual characteristics. Among the most well-known and frequently used sprays are the following preparations:

  • Tantum Verde;
  • Bioparox;
  • Chlorophyllipt;
  • Tharyngept;
  • Hexoral;
  • Inhaliptus;
  • Salbutamol.


Pharmacodynamics of the preparation Lazolvan: ambroxol hydrochloride improves the production of mucus in respiratory organs, stimulates the development of ciliary activity, increases the synthesis of pulmonary surfactant. All this helps to improve the process of excretion and excretion of mucus from the body.

Salbutamol is a selective agonist of the so-called ß2-adrenergic receptors. The therapeutic dose affects the receptors in the smooth muscles of the bronchi, also slightly acting on the myocardium, its ß1-adrenergic receptors. The drug performs a pronounced bronchodilator effect, thereby reducing the possibility of spasms in the bronchi. In addition, it reduces the level of resistance in the lungs, increasing their vital capacity.

When the drug is used in inhalation manipulations, its action begins quickly - immediately after 5 minutes after application - and lasts for 4-6 hours.

Aerosol from cough Hexoral suppresses oxidative reactions of bacterial metabolism, it has a wide spectrum antibacterial effect, so it treats infections from Pseudomonas aeruginosa well and Proteus. At a substance concentration of 100 mg / ml, the drug is capable of destroying most of the bacterial strains. Also, the drug slightly anesthetizes the mucous throat.


Hexoral Hexetidine is almost not absorbed into the mucosa, perfectly adhering to it. After a single use of the spray, the substance remains on the gums for approximately 65 hours. In dental plaques, it remains approximately 10-14 hours.

Lazolvan - this aerosol from a cough provides rapid absorption of ambroxol, which in the therapeutic range has a linear dependence. The substance is maximally concentrated in the plasma over a period of time from half an hour to 3 hours. About 90% of the drug in the plasma adheres to proteins. Ambroxol is rapidly distributed between tissues and blood, increasing the concentration of active components in the lungs. From the plasma, the drug is half-excreted in 7-12 hours, does not accumulate in the tissues. Approximately 90% of the drug goes out through the kidneys.

After inhalation Salbutamol reaches the lower part of the respiratory tract - approximately 10-20% of the dose. All the rest settles on the mucous throat, after which it is swallowed. The half-life of the drug lasts about 4-6 hours through the kidneys. The view remains partially unchanged. Another part is displayed as an inactive metabolite of phenolic sulfate. Remains go away with feces and bile (4%). The process of taking the medicine out of the patient takes about 72 hours.

Use of aerosols from coughing during pregnancy

Patients tolerate well, only sometimes there may be a burning sensation at the site of application or the occurrence of an allergic reaction. Vomiting may occur if the medicine is swallowed. But these side effects go quickly and without the need to cancel the drug. Since the drug contains ethyl alcohol, it should be about 30 minutes after its use do not interact with dangerous mechanisms and do not drive a car.

Aerosol from coughing Cameton has few negative reviews, as it is tolerated by patients quite well. Side effects are possible because of the high sensitivity to the components of the drug itself - burning and dryness of the mucous membrane of the pharynx and nose, swelling in the area of ​​spraying, skin rash, itching.

Ingalipt - this spray can cause allergies if the patient has a heightened sensitivity to some of its components. There may also be a sensation of burning and burning in the throat, nausea and vomiting. Since Ingalipt contains essential oils, children may develop a rash on the skin. An allergic reaction may occur in pregnant women.

Names of aerosols from cough

There are many different drugs that can cure cough.

Spray Chlorfillipt well helps with coughing. It is made on the basis of eucalyptus extract - ball eucalyptus acts as an active additive. Aerosol is an antiseptic and has an anti-inflammatory effect, improving the general condition of the patient and relieving the bouts of excruciating dry cough.

From dry cough can also rid the antiseptic drug Ingalipt, which is made on the basis of soluble streptocide. In addition, among the components of the drug can be found substances such as thymol, peppermint oil and eucalyptus, sodium sulfatiazole hexahydrate. The medicine has a combined effect on the area of ​​the disease. This cough syringe is used to treat throat disorders.

Spray Faryngsept has only a local effect, without affecting the other organs of the body, located next to the affected area. The drug is used for dry cough, as it quickly eliminates inflammation, moisturizing the throat and its mucous, thus eliminating the constant cough. For treatment it will be enough to do 3-4 injections a day. The course of treatment is recommended to be conducted no more than 2 weeks.

Aerosol from cough for children

Cough can be a sign of a variety of diseases. Medicines for its elimination are selected depending on its type - for example, with irritation in the throat with a hysterical cough, apply a spray. Its use allows the drug to get exactly to the site of inflammation, thereby contributing to the elimination of cough symptoms.

Aerosol from a cough for a child is different from those drugs that adults take. Sprays for children should be such that they will not irritate the mucous throat of the baby, nor will they cause any allergic reaction. The drug should only be used topically, it can not be that the medicine gets into the child's respiratory tract. In general, before you start using a spray, it is recommended to consult a qualified children's doctor.

In the event that, because of the use of an aerosol from a cough, the baby has signs of an allergy, you should immediately call a doctor. Allergic reaction is fraught with the appearance of swelling on the vocal cords and larynx, which is extremely dangerous. It should also be remembered that children who have not yet reached the age of 3 years are absolutely forbidden to give any medicinal aerosols.

Aerosol from allergic cough

Often with allergies, respiratory organs primarily suffer. Many allergy sufferers complain of such symptoms as swelling of the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract, paranasal sinuses, nose, feeling of suffocation.

With this problem, an anti-allergenic spray will be very effective. It acts in approximately the same way as an aerosol from a cough, arriving at the place where the irritant is located, which causes an allergic reaction. Then the medicine immediately, having just got on the mucous membrane of the throat, will begin its beneficial effect.

When a patient does not have life-threatening problems with the heart and blood pressure, and the violations themselves due to allergies are negligible, aerosol sprayed onto the mucous membrane, will reduce the amount and strength of attacks of an allergic reaction.

Each spray, which has anti-allergens in its composition, acts on the principle of direct action on the mucous membrane of the throat or nose, soothing it and reducing the area of ​​inflammation.

In addition, antiallergic sprays can contain components that can cope with local allergic reactions. Their action leads to the fact that tissue mast cells, which create substances that can cause allergies, decrease in quantity.

Aerosols from dry cough

If you have started coughing, you should immediately begin to treat it, because this is a rather unpleasant symptom. In this case, it is necessary to determine precisely what caused it to appear, because, depending on this, the method of treatment is also appointed. For example, if there is irritation in the throat, with a dry, dry cough, you should use a cough spray. But you should always take into account that children should not take drugs intended for adults.

There are some of the most popular aerosols that work by the principle of local action, immediately destroying the symptoms and soothing the cough. Among such preparations we distinguish Ingalipt, Chlorophylitis, Pharyngosept and Tantum Verde.

The above mentioned aerosols are considered to be the most effective and easy to use, therefore they are usually listed in the best medicines for cough.

Aerosol from cough has in its composition microparticles, which enhance the effect of its action - getting on the inflamed mucous membrane of the respiratory tract and removing irritation. Changes for the better appear shortly after the start of the drug - the symptoms begin to disappear, the cough subsides.

Method of application of aerosols from cough

Spray Cameton is applied to the mouth with a dispenser. The duration of each inhalation is approximately 3-5 seconds. For adults and children from 5 years of age, inhalations are prescribed 3-4 times a day for 1-2 days. Often this spray is taken with other medications. When applying the substance, the can should be in an upright position, with the spray gun facing upwards. Do not spray the eyes. If this still happens, flush your eyes with clean water, then visit the doctor.

Hexoral spray is applied to the mucosa of the pharynx or mouth - this drug allows you to quickly and without complications spray the medicine on the inflamed areas. Before application it is necessary to put on the spray nozzle, which is a nebulizer, then send it to the inflamed area of ​​the mouth. In the process of inhalation, the can should be in an upright position. Press on the nebulizer 1-2 seconds. When you take the medicine, hold your breath.

The aerosol from the cough Jox is used 2-4 times a day, or, if necessary, every 4 hours. Before use, remove the cap, put on the nozzle, press it 2-3 times to fill it with a solution. Then the nozzle is injected into the mouth and 2-3 sprays are made left and right. After completing the use, it is necessary to wash the nozzle with running water.


When an overdose of Bioparox appears, such symptoms as numbness of the oral cavity, problems with blood circulation, burning and sore throat, dizziness. To be treated in this case it is necessary symptomatically and under supervision.

Salbutamol in case of an overdose causes such side effects as tachycardia, depression of pressure, nausea, tremor of muscles, vomiting. Taking a large dose of the drug can cause hypokalemia, so you need to monitor the potassium in the serum.

In case of an overdose, immediately stop the treatment with salbutamol and perform the necessary therapy appropriate to the symptoms. In this case, cardioselective blockers for beta-adrenergic receptors may be used - for patients who suffer from tachycardia. This procedure should be carried out cautiously, if the patient has a history of bronchospasm.

Teraflu Lar may cause vomiting and nausea during an overdose. Since the preparation contains only a small amount of lidocaine, it does not cause too dangerous symptoms in case of taking an excessively high dose of the drug. To get rid of discomfort, you need to eat egg whites beaten in water or drink a glass of milk.

Interactions with other drugs

Salbutamol should not be used together with non-selective beta-adrenoreceptor blockers, for example, propranolol. It is also prohibited for patients receiving monoamine oxidase inhibitors. This drug enhances the effect of stimulants in the central nervous system.

If you take salbutamol with theophylline and other xanthines, it can increase the risk of developing tachyarrhythmia. When using inhalants, severe ventricular arrhythmias may occur.

Simultaneous admission with m-holinoblokatorami can increase the level of intraocular pressure, and use with diuretics and glucocorticosteroids increases hypokalemic effects preparation.

The benzoxonium chloride contained in TeraFlu LAB will decrease its effectiveness if it is simultaneously used with anionically active substances, such as toothpaste. The absorption of benzoxonium chloride increases in combination with ethanol.

Aerosol from cough Jox should not be combined with other antiseptic drugs that are applied topically to the oral mucosa. In particular, it is incompatible with drugs that contain hydrogen peroxide, since it creates an inactivation of the aerosol.

They are a canister in which there is a liquefied medicine - a suspension of the smallest particles of a pharmaceutical composition in a gaseous medium.

Advantages of treating cough with aerosols

Compared to other dosage forms, aerosol administration of pharmaceutical agents has several advantages. It:

  • Almost instantaneous action.
  • The contact of microparticles of the drug substance even in the most remote parts of the respiratory system.
  • No effect on the stomach.

Features of the use of aerosols from cough

Cupping of bronchospasm with aerosol medications should be done only after consultation with a doctor.

Hexoral for children: composition, indications for use and therapeutic effect

  • Application
  • Analogues

Hexoral for children is an antiseptic topical preparation.

It is effective in the treatment of dental and ENT diseases.

There are two main active substances in tablets:

  • Chlorhexidine, which adversely affects both gram-positive and gram-negative microflora.
  • Benzocaine, which anesthetizes and quickly eliminates unpleasant symptoms. The maximum effect is achieved after 10 minutes after application, and then it gradually decreases until it disappears completely.

When using tablets for more than one month, their effectiveness decreases, as the causative agents acquire resistance to the drug.

The active substance is hexetidine, which has a stable antibacterial and antifungal effect. One of the merits of the drug is that, as long as you do not take it, the effect of treatment does not decrease, the growth of bacteria continues to be suppressed.

Hexetidine anesthetizes the place of application, but the effect is not significant.

The aerosol consists of the following components: peppermint in the form of oil, citric acid menthol and eucalyptol. The topical solution also includes ethyl alcohol and anise oil.

Geoxoral is available in three forms:

  • Lozenges:
    • Hexoral Tubs;
    • Hexoral Tubs is a classic;
    • Hexorhal Tubs extra.
  • Rinse solution.
  • Aerosol for topical application.

Hexoral is very effective for diseases of the ENT organs, laryngitis, angina, stomatitis, and also it can facilitate breathing with a strong dry cough.

The instructions do not recommend the use of Geksoral for children under 3 years. This medicine is not a child or an adult, the difference is only in application, depending on the age of the patient. Dr. Komarovsky emphasizes that before prescribing any medication, you need to find the cause of the disease and make a diagnosis.

The following antiseptics have an analgesic and antibacterial effect: Ingalipt aerosol, Tantum Verde, Cameton and Hexaspree. Which of these medicines will suit a child better, will help determine the pediatrician. None of the drugs, even the best, is not a panacea, it is important to find the one that is best for treating the disease.

The drug is used topically in otolaryngology and dentistry, in view of the antifungal and hemostatic effect on pathogenic microorganisms and Gram-positive bacteria. The basic principle is to suppress the reaction of oxidative metabolism.

Active components of the drug can be detected in the human body for 65 hours. The therapeutic effect is observed 10-12 hours after taking the medicine.


Aerosol Geksoral is strongly discouraged from prescribing and using for children under one year, as the child is unable to hold his breath and not swallow the medicine. It can be used at this age only for the treatment of wounds in the oral cavity.

In case the drug has been prescribed by a doctor to a child under 3 years of age, correctly administer the administration of Geksoral. The direction of the injection should be at the cheek, in case you inject directly into the sore throat, it can provoke laryngospasm. Hexalol for children should not be swallowed, explain this to the child before use, otherwise do not use the drug.

Only a qualified doctor can prescribe the correct dosage of the drug, as well as a release form that is suitable in this case. If you use the drug yourself, without reading the instructions and without visiting the doctor, you should expect side effects.

Since Geksoral acts locally, the use of solution and aerosol during pregnancy and lactation is acceptable.

There are two main contraindications to the use of Geksoral:

  • the age of the child is up to 3 years (the exception is the prescription of the doctor, the use of the medicine at an earlier age, but not an independent appointment);
  • individual intolerance of the components included in its composition.

Absorption of the drug Hexoral is minimal, so its tolerance is very good, except for the patient's allergic reactions to the components of the drug. The ingestion of the drug and its uncontrolled reception leads to an overdose and subsequent reactions of the body, described in detail in the instructions for use. Hexalol for children includes 96% alcohol, which will negatively affect the child's body, in case of swallowing the components of the solution when rinsing. Also, in the case of long-term use of the medication, it is possible to disrupt taste sensations.

Hexoral for angina and for the treatment of other diseases

Angina or acute tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils, which is of an infectious nature. Her provocateurs may be dozens of microorganisms. It begins with a rise in fever and the appearance of severe pain in the throat.

These symptoms are similar to a number of other diseases, the doctor can diagnose by conducting the necessary tests. In the treatment of angina, a complex approach is used to achieve a quick and lasting result.

Geksoral with angina, gingivitis and pharyngitis does not strengthen the immune system, but it acts only on the causative agent of the disease. To mobilize it, you can use other drugs, such as Anaferon, Immunal or Aflubin. Its antiseptic and analgesic effect can quickly improve the patient's well-being.

Hexoral, since it has a pronounced fungicidal activity, is prescribed for the treatment of other diseases, such as:

  • thrush of the oral cavity;
  • Periodontal disease (gingivitis and bleeding gums).

Its use is advisable in the pre - and postoperative period.
