Causes sleepiness

How it works
Ambroxol works by promoting mucus clearance and easing a productive cough. Chlorpheniramine blocks the action of certain substances produced by the body which induce allergic reactions. Dextromethorphan blocks the signals from the brain that trigger cough reflex and thus it helps in suppressing the cough.
