How Alex + 5mg/100mg/1mg/4mg Syrup works

Alex + 5mg/100mg/1mg/4mg Syrup is a combination of four medicines: Dextromethorphan, guaifenesin, phenylephrine, and chlorpheniramine which relieve cough and cold symptoms. Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that relieves cough by reducing the activity of cough centre in the brain. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which decreases the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and helps in its removal from the airways.
