Abstract: The study was conducted as a single blind, randomized and standard controlled trial. Forty patients of Warme Shoab Muzmin were selected and randomly assigned to control and test groups; comprising 20 patients in each group. Test formulation consisting Aslussoos (Glycyrrhiza glabra), Parsiyaoshan (Adiantum capillus veresis), Zufa yabis (Hyssopus officinalis) and Sapistan (Cordia dichotoma) was given to the test group in the dose of 20 gm/day in decoction form for 45 days. The standard group received Ambroxol as a standard drug in the dose of 75 mg in tablet form once a day orally for 45 days. All the patients were assessed for subjective and objective parameters. The results were analyzed statistically using Mann- Whitney test ‘U’, Wilcoxon matched pairs signed rank test and student’s ‘t’ test. The test drug exhibited statistically significant improvement in cough (p<0.004), sputum production (p<0.001), and breathlessness (p<0.0146) in subjective parameters in comparison to control group. A significant improvement was also observed in wheezes (p<0.004), chest X- Ray findings (p<0.0477), and spirometric measures consisting of FEV1 % predicted (p<0.01), FEV1/FVC % (p<0.019), and PEF (p<0.03).
