Chronic Bronchitis

Can over-the-counter medications treat chronic bronchitis?

A Answers (1)

  • The most recommended medications used to treat chronic bronchitis are prescription medications - particularly bronchodilator medications and corticosteroids. You can, however, take over-the-counter drugs like acetaminophen to help with the pain of your condition, or fever-reducing medication like ibuprofen if you develop a high temperature. It is not recommended that people with chronic bronchitis take over-the-counter cough-suppressing medications, however, as they do not usually treat the condition effectively.
