How Elzin Expectorant works

Elzin Expectorant is a combination of four medicines: Cetirizine, Ambroxol, Guaifenesin and Menthol which relieve cough with mucus. Cetirizine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. 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. Menthol is an organic compound which produces a sensation of coolness and relieves minor throat irritation.
