How it works
Bro-Zedex LS Drops contains levosalbutamol, ambroxol and guaifenesin. Levosalbutamol works by relaxing the smooth muscles and opens the blocked air passages thereby improves the amount of airflow to the lungs. Ambroxol is a mucolytic that makes mucous (phlegm) thinner and helps in expelling out easily. Guaifenesin is an expectorant that helps in relieving productive cough by decreasing the stickiness of the mucous in the airways.
