Second, antitussive drugs

An antitussive is a drug that acts on the central or peripheral part of the cough reflex and inhibits cough reflex.

Third, expectorants

A drug that makes the sputum thin and easy to discharge is called a peony. It can increase respiratory secretion, dilute sputum or reduce its viscosity, make sputum easy to cough up, and improve cough and asthma symptoms. Therefore, expectorants can also exert antitussive and antiasthmatic effects.
