expectorant drugs that were used before, stimulated receptors of the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract, and facilitate the movement of mucus mechanically, but in recent years the use of new drugs that alter the fluidity of mucus, reducing its stickiness and significantly facilitate its removal.All the drugs are removed from the lungs phlegm, can be divided into 2 groups: one stimulates expectoration, while others phlegm, do not allow it to bind to and close up the airways, improve its turnover - such medicines called mucolytics.
preparations for cleansing the lungs
drug Ambroxol (Mucosolvan) , reduces the viscosity of mucus and increases the production of surfactant - a substance through which the pulmonary alveoli - bubbles containing breathable lightweight air - are in good condition, do not fall off and do not stick together.Sticking alveoli during respiration causes an accumulation of fluid in them muddy - exudate;This liquid contains a lot of harmful and unnecessary - blood cells and e
Another effective drug - Acetylcysteine , also liquefies phlegm - even the most viscous, has expectorant and detoxifying action.The range of applications is wide enough at it: it helps not only in acute and chronic pulmonary diseases, but also cleans the airways after operations and injuries - hence it can be considered as a means to cleanse the lungs, but should not be used without consulting a doctor.Available Acetylcysteine as a solution for inhalation, but most people know better than its other form - ACC, the drug in the form of granules or effervescent tablets - they are inside, soluble in water.

Mukaltin In addition, you can buy in a drugstore and other drugs on the basis of marshmallow root - they all have anti-inflammatory and expectorant action, reduce the viscosity of mucus and purified light: it is the root of marshmallow syrup, dry extract, nursing fees and medicines for children.Sodium benzoate
known not only as a pharmaceutical preparation, but also as a food additive - it is often used in the food industry.Assign it often with other expectorants - in the form of medicine, but if the problem is not too advanced, you can use it separately - contraindications to its use almost none, except for the individual characteristics of the organism.
