Bromax Syrup may be taken with or without food. Take it in the dose and duration as advised by the doctor. The dose and duration will depend on your condition and how you respond to the medicine. You should keep taking this medicine for as long as your doctor recommends. If you stop treatment too early your symptoms may come back and your condition may worsen. Let your doctor know about all other medications you are taking as some may affect, or be affected by this medicine.

The most common side effects are nausea, bloating, diarrhea, indigestion, headache, sweating, and skin rash. Most of these are temporary and usually resolve with time.

How Bromax Syrup works

Bromax Syrup is a combination of four medicines: ammonium chloride, bromhexine, dextromethorphan and menthol which relieve wet cough. Ammonium chloride is an expectorant which works by decreasing the stickiness of airway secretions and helps in their removal from the airways. Bromhexine is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that relieves cough by reducing the activity of cough centre in the brain. Menthol is an organic compound which produces a sensation of coolness and relieves minor throat irritation.
