How Dicof Syrup works

Dicof Syrup is a combination of three medicines: Guaifenesin, chlorpheniramine and dextromethorphan which relieve cough and cold symptoms. Guaifenesin and ammonium chloride are expectorants which decrease the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and help in its removal from the airways. Chlorpheniramine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that relieves cough by reducing the activity of cough centre in the brain.
