In Treatment of Cough

Take it in the exact dose and duration as prescribed by the doctor. Along with medications, drink enough lukewarm water and gargle with warm salt water to ease the symptoms.

How Cadiphylate Elixir works

Cadiphylate Elixir is a combination of three medicines: Piperazine, Ephedrine and Guaifenesin. Piperazine is a bronchodilator which works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widens the airways. Ephedrine is a sympathomimetic agonist which works on the blood vessels and increases the blood flow to heart and lungs. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which works by decreasing the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and helps in its removal from the airways.
