How Salcoryl Syrup works

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