Cough is one of the most widespread respiratory symptoms, which is manifested in people, regardless of age, place of residence and social status; it often affects the lifestyle and activity of people. For example, in European countries over 30% of the population aged 23 to 50 years suffer from coughing, and the number of such patients increases every year. The urgency of the problem of treating cough is associated with the incorrect treatment of inflammatory diseases of the nasal cavity and upper respiratory tract, which leads to the deve-lopment of complications and chronization of the process. At the requisition of the World Health Organization (WHO), over-the-counter drugs must meet the following requirements: the drug must be well known, often used in medical practice, be safe for children and not have a toxic effect on the human body. As an example of modern plant products, drug Eucabal can be considered. The article shows the values of the effectiveness of the drug Eucabal in the form of syrup and balsam. This drug may be recommended for the treatment of dry or wet cough. To achieve the best result, the drug should be used at the first sign of coughing.
