Overview

Introduction

A-Bex Syrup is a combination medicine used in the treatment of cough. It thins and loosens the mucus in the nose, windpipe and lungs, making it easier to cough out. It also provides relief from runny nose, sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and throat irritation.

A-Bex Syrup may be taken with food. Take it in the dose and duration advised by the doctor. In case you miss a dose of this medicine, take it as soon as you remember. But, never take a double dose to make up for the missed one. If you have suffered or are currently suffering from any liver or kidney problems, inform your doctor before you start taking this medicine.

This medication may cause side effects like stomach upset, nausea, headache, tremor, palpitations, increased heart rate rash, and vomiting. Consult your doctor if your symptoms worsen or are accompanied by high fever or persistent headache. It may cause diarrhea, so it is better to take plenty of fluids while taking this medicine as it may help to prevent dehydration. It may also cause dizziness as a side effect, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus. Avoid alcohol while taking this medicine as alcohol may worsen your side effects.

How A-Bex Syrup works

A-Bex Syrup is a combination of four medicines: Ambroxol, Guaifenesin, Menthol and Terbutaline. Ambroxol is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which works by decreasing the stickiness of airway secretions and helps in their removal from the airways. Menthol is an organic compound which produces a sensation of coolness and relieves minor throat irritation. Terbutaline is a bronchodilator which relaxs the muscles in the airways and widens the airways.Together, they make breathing easier.
