How Broxet Syrup works

Broxet Syrup is a combination of four medicines: Terbutaline, Ambroxol, Guaifenesin and Flavoured Mentholated base which relieve cough with mucus. Terbutaline is a bronchodilator. It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widens airways. Ambroxol is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out.

Flavoured Mentholated base produces a cooling sensation and relieves minor throat irritation.
