Posted 25 Nov 2015 by Drugs.com

-- Bronchitis is an inflammation of tissue that lines the bronchial tubes in the lungs. If you're stricken, there are things you can do to be more comfortable and help ease coughing.

Run a humidifier to help your cough and thin mucus. Keep the machine clean, following the manufacturer's instructions. If colder air bothers your cough, wear a face mask when you head outdoors.

That Lingering Cough Could Be Bronchitis

Posted 21 May 2015 by Drugs.com

THURSDAY, May 21, 2015 – If you have a cold that lasts a long time or a persistent cough, you could have bronchitis and should see a doctor, a doctor says. "We see a lot of cases of bronchitis at our immediate care centers," said Dr. Khalilah Babino, an assistant professor of family Medicine at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.

Symptoms of bronchitis – a serious disorder of the lower respiratory tract – include fever, chills, chest congestion and productive cough that lasts more than five days, Babino said. "The cough can last two to three weeks and could be an indicator of a more serious condition. If symptoms persist for more than seven to 10 days or symptoms start to get worse, ... Read more

FDA Bans Unapproved Prescription Cough, Cold and Allergy Meds

Posted 2 Mar 2011 by Drugs.com

WEDNESDAY, March 2 – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that it plans to remove about 500 unapproved prescription cough, cold, and allergy medicines from pharmacy shelves. These drugs have not been evaluated by the FDA for safety and effectiveness, and they may be riskier to take than approved over-the-counter (OTC) drugs that treat these same conditions, agency officials explained. "This action is necessary to protect consumers from the potential risks posed by unapproved drugs, because we don't know what's in them, whether they work properly or how they are made," Deborah M. Autor, director of the agency's Office of Compliance at the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, said during a morning news conference. Of particular concern are drugs that have time-release formulations, Autor said. "We know from experience that these type of products are complicated to ... Read more
