Overview

Introduction

Ambrox Plus Syrup is a combination medicine used in the treatment of dry cough. It thins and loosens mucus in the nose, windpipe and lungs making it easier to cough out.

Ambrox Plus Syrup also relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes, and sneezing. It narrows the small blood vessels, providing relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose. It is taken with or without 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, insomnia (difficulty in sleeping), nausea, headache, loss of appetite, 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 Ambrox Plus Syrup works

Ambrox Plus Syrup is a combination of four medicines: Ambroxol, guaifenesin, chlorpheniramine and phenylephrine which relieve dry cough. 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 mucus (phlegm) and helps in their removal from the airways. Chlorpheniramine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Phenylephrine is a decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels providing relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose.
