Antitussive effect of herbal medicine bakumondo-to: a case report

Antitussive effect of herbal medicine bakumondo-to: a case report

American Journal of Chinese Medicine 24(3-4): 321-325

A 50 year-old woman with progressive systemic sclerosis accompanied by interstitial pneumonia complained of a dry cough. A variety of antitussive agents were given for the dry cough over a one year period, but her symptoms continued. However, when a herbal medicine Bakumondo-to was administered, her intractable dry cough subsided dramatically within 10 days. Bakumondo-to may be a good antitussive agent for interstitial pneumonia associated with a dry cough that is resistant to other antitussives.
