How it works
Ambroxol promotes mucus clearance and eases a productive cough. Guaifenesin reduces the thickness of mucus in the air passages; this makes it easier to cough up the mucus and clear the airways. Terbutaline is a bronchodilator medicine that is used to relieve symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, breathing difficulties, coughing etc. associated with asthma. Menthol causes a feeling of coolness and also reduces itching and pain.
