How Cof-BR Syrup works

Cof-BR Syrup is a combination of four medicines: Ammonium chloride, bromhexine, dextromethorphan and menthol which relieve dry 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.

Menthol is an organic compound which produces a sensation of coolness and relieves minor throat irritation.
