How Astex Expectorant works

Astex Expectorant is a combination of three medicines: Bromhexine, Salbutamol / Albuterol and Guaifenesin which relieve cough with mucus. Bromhexine is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Salbutamol is a bronchodilator. It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widens airways. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which decreases the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and helps in its removal from the airways. Together, they make breathing easier.
