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, headache, nausea, rash, and vomiting. Consult your doctor if your symptoms worsen or are accompanied by high fever or persistent headache.

How Amlody Syrup works

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