How Ephex A Syrup works

Ephex A Syrup is a combination of three medicines: Ambroxol, Guaifenesin and Salbutamol/Albuterol, which relieves cough with mucus. Ambroxol is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which decreases the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and helps in its removal from the airways. Salbutamol is a bronchodilator. It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widens airways. Together, they make breathing easier.
