Problem of cough treatment at the background of acute respiratory infections in children was discussed in an article. We presented possibility of plant origin drugs usage in case of acute cough symptom presence. We examined efficacy of syrup Ivy in case of acute respiratory diseases in 40 children from 3 up to 10 years of age that passed treatment in infection-diagnostic department of Vinnytsya regional children’s hospital. We analyzed results of the syrup Ivy usage in patients with acute cough in case of acute respiratory infections with evaluation of the clinical dynamic. Duration and quality changes of the cough, its influence on quality of life, night dreaming were detected. Efficacy of syrup Ivy was checked by comparing of main and control groups. In 92% patients of the main group on the 10 day of the disease cough disappeared completely, in control group – results achieved in 62%. It confirms positive influence of the drug on general condition of the child and clinical manifestation of the disease, sputum production, characteristics of the cough its frequency, etc. Usage of Ivy syrup confirmed clinical efficacy as mucolytic, broncholytic and anti-inflammatory drug for children with symptoms of acute cough in a complex treatment of respiratory system.
