How Cheston Syrup works

Cheston Expectorant Raspberry Sugar Free is a combination of three medicines: Bromhexine, guaifenesin and chlorpheniramine which relieve cough. Bromhexine is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which decreases the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and helps in its removal from the airways. Chlorpheniramine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing.
