Listening to your body will help you better understand how to protect it according to Brooksville-based MCR American Pharmaceuticals.

Brooksville, Florida — July 16, 2012

It may be hard to believe but the cough is one of the protective mechanisms of your body. Oftentimes your body sends warning signals like a cough to inform you of some sort of ailment.

The purpose of the cough is to clear foreign material from the lining of the airways in the lungs, says MCR American Pharmaceuticals, a specialty pharmaceutical company that focuses on the marketing, development, sales and distribution of the highest quality medications.

The company has been in the pharmaceutical field since 1991 and currently manufactures and sells 12 medication products that aim to relieve the common cold, sinusitis, hay fever, and allergic rhinitis.

The medications include four product families called Congestinex, Maxifed, Maxiphen and Super-Tuss. The Congestinex product family consists of Congestinex, Congestinex C, Congestinex DM and Congestinex PE. Maxifed consists of Maxifed, Maxifed DMX, Maxifed G, and Maxifed DM. Maxiphen consists of Maxiphen and Maxiphen DM. And lastly, the Super-Tuss product family consists of Super-Tuss PE and Super-Tuss PSE.

According to MCR American Pharmaceuticals, a cough is a reflex action that occurs when there is an irritant present in the lungs.

Sometimes people cough because they breathe in dust or some sort of pollutant yet the cough can also be a sign of something more serious.

"Oftentimes people brush aside their cough and ignore it, yet it's extremely important to monitor your cough and turn to a medical professional for more advice and guidance," said owner of MCR American Pharmaceuticals, David Daniel Ambrose.

David Ambrose suggests that you visit your physician if your cough produces a lot of mucus and/or blood. Such side effects tend to be indications of a serious ailment. The presence of mucus may signal an infection. A persistent cough can indicate a more serious disorder such as tuberculosis, lung cancer, asthma and bronchitis.

"If you have a persistent cough, then you should definitely listen to MCR American Pharmaceuticals and go see a physician and get the cough checked out," said a nurse at a local Florida hospital who wished to remain anonymous.
