Aquatab D Uses
Aquatab D is usually used to treat symptoms of coughs caused by common cold. The common cold is a viral infection in the nose and throat region. Common characteristics of the cold include watery eyes, sneezing and congestion. It is often uncomfortable for patients who continue to cough as they experience achy bodies. The cough suppressant medication in Aquatab D works by blocking the cough reflex. The decongestant in Aquatab D works by reducing the nasal congestion (stuffy nose, swollen glands) and helps the patient breathe easier by loosening phlegm. This medication tends to have a drying effect on the body so be sure to drink plenty of fluids and get plenty of rest. Therefore, if the patient’s condition worsens, they should contact their doctor.
