How Torex-SF Syrup works

Torex-SF Syrup is a combination of four medicines: Diphenhydramine, guaifenesin, bromhexine and ammonium chloride which relieve cough. Diphenhydramine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Guaifenesin and ammonium chloride are expectorants which decrease the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and help in its removal from the airways. Bromhexine is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out.
