What is the best treatment for adults with acute cough with and without wheezing? Evidence-based answer: Pelargonium sidoides may be slightly effective for the cough of acute bronchitis, and the evidence is mixed for antibiotics, dextromethorphan, guaifenesin, and antihistamine–decongestant combinations. Antihistamines alone and beta2-agonists do not work. Evidence is limited that beta2-agonists may be effective for acute cough with wheezing (SOR: C, meta-analysis with heterogeneous data).
