Medications for Vocal Cord Dysfunction

Vocal cord dysfunction occurs when the vocal cords close (vocal cord adduction) during the breathing in and/or breathing out phases of the respiratory cycle. This obstructs airflow causing symptoms of shortness of breath, tightness of throat or chest, wheezing, cough, throat clearing and a hoarse voice.
