Dkof Syrup is a combination of four medicines: Phenylephrine, guaifenesin, ambroxol and levocetirizine which relieve cough. Phenylephrine is a decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels providing temporary relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which works by decreasing the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and helps in its removal from the airways. Ambroxol is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Levocetirizine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing.
Dkof Syrup may cause excessive drowsiness and calmness with alcohol.
