How is bronchitis treated?
  1. Antipyretics (e.g., Paracetamol) to lower fever.
  2. Antibiotics, if bacterial infection is present.
  3. Bronchodilators (e.g., salbutamol) to open up the bronchial passages in the lungs.
  4. Mucolytics, useful in chronic bronchitis to help thin out and expel thick and sticky mucus from the respiratory tract.
  5. Oxygen may be needed for very chronic cases.
  6. Bed rest and increased fluid intake.
