How Nkoff Syrup works

Nkoff Syrup is a combination of four medicines: Chlorpheniramine Maleate, Ammonium Chloride, Sodium Citrate and Menthol which relieve cough. Chlorpheniramine 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. Sodium citrate is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Menthol is an organic compound which produces a sensation of coolness and relieves minor throat irritation.
