Cough syrup Geelix for kids: instructions for use, at which cough take
How to take syrup «Geelix»?
Medical practice shows that the cough reflex is a leader among the clinical manifestations provoked by the pathological diseases of the respiratory tract. At the same time, this symptom ranks fifth among the reasons for the recourse to the pediatricians.
Almost all respiratory diseases, in particular SARS, accompanied by dry cough. Treatment of this type of cough syndrome in children involves the use of drugs of plant origin. These include syrup «Geelix» pharmacological action mucolytic, secretolytic and antispasmodic.
What cough justified by the purpose of the tool?
Lack of timely treatment cough reflex is dangerous to the progression of inflammation, desquamation of the ciliated epithelium and the development of complications (pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma, sinusitis, otitis) on the accession of pathological microflora. Differential diagnosis with the participation of the attending physician will help to determine the etiology of the cough and prescribe the correct therapy.
When the diagnosis unproductive cough syndrome in children, pediatricians prefer herbal medicine «Geelix» in the form of syrup. The dosage form is authorized for use from the first days of baby’s life, has a minimum list of contraindications and side effects.
For reference! German manufacturer Krewel Meuselbach GmbH implements drug «Geelix» in the form of drops. This form of the drug has no age restrictions and Pets when treating children older than two years.
The main active ingredient of the medicine presented in the form of extract of ivy leaves, the content of which there is a sufficient number of physiologically active components (flavonoids, saponins, triterpenoids).
Representatives of polycyclic organic acids, triterpenoids, featuring a wide range of biological effects on the human body, inhibit the proliferative phase of inflammation and inactivate the activity of the pathological agents.
Saponine glycosides contribute to the increased secretion of bronchial glands, while providing a secretolytic and expectorant effect – decrease viscosity of the pathological detachable and allows for the removal (coughing up) from the respiratory tract.
Flavonoids help to reduce the frequency of cough attacks, to treat spasmodic cough, preventing the occurrence of bronchospasm. Also strengthen the immune system, prevent the insight of blood vessels, helping to strengthen the walls of the latter.
Having studied the pharmacological properties of the drug, it can be summarized that justified the use of «Gadelica» dry cough.
Important! In order to avoid stagnation of bronchial secretions prohibits the simultaneous use of «Gadelica» with protivokashlevami drugs («Pour», «Libeksin», Mucosolvan, etc.)
Pharmaprodukte supports the migration of the cough reflex in the productive phase, so it is more rational to replace the «Geelix» from wet cough for medicines destined for the treatment of productive cough («Gerbion» plantain extract, «Ambrobene», «Mucosolvan»).

Noted advantages – natural composition, no alcohol and sugar, only not very pleasant taste, but the child drank without problems. Treated for weeks, 2.5 ml. three times a day (son is 3.5 years). Literally on the second day the dry cough went in wet. Medicine excellently copes with its purpose, helped us a lot. But a friend was treating his eight-month-old daughter – they syrup did not fit, had to choose a different tool.
