How Capex CZ Expectorant works

Capex CZ Expectorant Syrup is a combination of five medicines: Ambroxol, Cetirizine, Phenylephrine, Guaifenesin and Menthol. Ambroxol and Guaifenesin work by decreasing the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) which helps in its removal from the airways. Cetirizine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Phenylephrine is a decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels providing temporary relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose. Menthol produces a cooling sensation and relieves minor throat irritation.
