How Shwas Capsule works

Shwas 8 mg/2.4 mg/100 mg Capsule is a combination of three medicines: Bromhexine, salbutamol, theophylline. Salbutamol and theophylline are bronchodilators which relax the muscles in the airways and widen the airways. Bromhexine is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Together, they make breathing easier.
