How Edicof L Syrup works

Edicof L Syrup is a combination of four medicines: Ambroxol, Guaifenesin, Levocetirizine and Menthol which relieve cough with mucus. Ambroxol is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which works by decreasing the stickiness of airway secretions and helps in their removal from the airways.
