Homoeopathic mode of action

Antimonium tartaricum's application is for the treatment of respiratory ailments characterized by accumulation of rattling mucus with little expectoration, rapid, difficult breathing, burning chest pain, hoarseness and suffocating coughing spasms.  Atropa belladonna has an anti-inflammatory action and counteracts congestion to relieve short, dry, barking cough which is worse at night and irregular respiration.  Bryonia  alba acts on serous membranes to treat dry mucosa with tough mucus, stitch-like pains in the chest, dry hacking cough and difficult breathing. Cephaelis acuminata relieves incessant spasmodic cough with constriction in the chest, dyspnoea and loose, rattling mucus, but little expectoration.  Coccus cacti is indicated for spasmodic and whoop-like cough, chronic bronchitis and accumulation of thick, viscid mucus in the airways.  Cuprum aceticum treats violent spasmodic cough with constriction in the chest and short, painful breathing.  Drosera rotundifolia is the principle remedy for whoop-like cough, dry ,spasmodic, deep, hoarse cough paroxysms that follow one another rapidly and result in exertion on speaking.  Ferrum phosphoricum has an anti-inflammatory and tissue strengthening action and is useful for short painful cough and croup. Hyoscyamus niger is indicated for suffocating fits of coughing that occur at night and are worse for lying down. Magnesium phosphoricum has an antispasmodic action on the muscular tissue of the airways making breathing easier and less painful. Matricaria recutita (Chamomilla) is a natural carminative and relieves irritable dry tickling cough. Thymus serpyllum is indicated for respiratory infection primarily in children, cough with little sputum production and whoop-like cough.
