How Frekof Tablet works

Frekof Tablet is a combination of five medicines: Guaifenesin, bromhexine, chlorpheniramine, paracetamol and ephedrine which relieve cold symptoms. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which decreases the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and helps in its removal from the airways. Bromhexine is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Chlorpheniramine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Paracetamol is an analgesic (pain reliever) and antipyretic (fever reducer). It blocks the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that are responsible for pain and fever. Ephedrine is a sympathomimetic agonist which works on the blood vessels and increases the blood flow to heart and lungs.
