How Prodyl Expectorant works

Prodyl Expectorant is a combination of five medicines: Guaifenesin, Bromhexine, Diphenhydramine, Ammonium Chloride and Ammonium Chloride which relieve cold symptoms. Guaifenesin and ammonium chloride are expectorants which work by decreasing the stickiness of airway secretions and help in their removal from the airways. Bromhexine is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Diphenhydramine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Menthol is an organic compound which produces a sensation of coolness and relieves minor throat irritation.
