Methods- A Non-randomized, non-comparative, user-initiated trial was conducted across the 12 investigational centers for a duration of 5 days. A total of 231 patients were enrolled and screened for the study out of which 217 patients completed the study trial and 14 patients were lost to followup. Results- A reduction in CSS was observed and the mean of the cough symptom score (CSS) was recorded at all the visits (V0, V1 and V2). The mean CSS at V0 or the baseline visit at day 1 or V1 was 6.09 which was reduced to 3.31 at V2 at day 3 and further reduced to 0.61 on V3 or day 5. The reduction in CSS corresponded with the improvement in general and physical examination of the patients.
