Colds and flu

Question

Q.

What's the best expectorant cough formula for bronchitis and flu coughs?

When my 5'2" friend Michelle suffered severe coughing spasms from a severe flu attack last fall she took an expectorant cough formula to calm her flu cough spasms. For some odd reason she found a bottle of Vicks Cough Syrup and took that for her flu cough. She figured at best the Vicks Cough Syrup would calm the flu cough spasms but she didn't know the Vicks Cough Syrup she took for her flu coughs loosened her chest congestion worsening the flu coughs. She then told me that this Vicks Cough Syrup she took for her flu coughs is the best expectorant cough formula for flu bronchitis and cold coughs. Any other expectorant cough medicines you found work as well for flu cold and bronchitis coughs?

Hi Greg 

I like to suggest Pholtex or Prospan to patients. They are also expectorants, and loosen the phlegm associated with bronchitis and the flu. Hope you are well and healthy.
