How Gercodryl Syrup works

Gercodryl Syrup is a combination of three medicines: Menthol, Diphenhydramine and Ammonium Chloride which relieve cold symptoms. Menthol is an organic compound which produces a sensation of coolness and relieves minor throat irritation. Diphenhydramine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Ammonium Chloride is an expectorant which works by decreasing the stickiness of airway secretions and helps in their removal from the airways.
