According to statistics of health facilities in 2010, about 80 percent of all ailments are diseases of ENT and respiratory tract, influenza, acute respiratory infections. And children on average once a month suffer diseases of the upper respiratory tract and less often - diseases of the lower respiratory tract. But the latter cause more serious complications. In such cases, a drug with anti-bronchoconstrictive and anti-inflammatory activity "Erespal" (syrup) is taken.

What is included in the "Erespal" (syrup)?
Instructions for use (for children under 18, only syrup is prescribed) states that a liquid of bright orange color is produced in 150 ml dark plastic bottles in a carton box along with the instruction. This medicine is very sweet, even sugary, which causes a protective cough, so immediately wash it with water.
The active substance of this drug is fenspiride hydrochloride. But it also includes other auxiliary components: honey flavor, vanilla tincture, yellow dye, licorice root extract, glycerol, sucrose, potassium sorbate, saccharin, purified water, propyl parahydroxybenzoate, methyl parahydroxybenzoate.
Despite the fact that fenspirida hydrochloride perfectly copes with excretion and reduction of sputum in the body, transforms dry cough into wet, the presence of propyl- and methylparahydroxybenzoate during long-term treatment can cause allergies. Therefore, many mothers with children undergo research with an allergist-immunologist for the tolerability of the drug in order to avoid side effects during treatment.
How to take Erespal (syrup)?
