Guaifenesin + Terbutaline + Bromhexine is a combination of three medicines: Guaifenesin + Terbutaline + Bromhexine1, Guaifenesin + Terbutaline + Bromhexine2 and Guaifenesin + Terbutaline + Bromhexine3, which relieves cough with mucus. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which decreases the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and helps in its removal from the airways. Terbutaline is a bronchodilator. It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widens the airways. Bromhexine is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Together, they make breathing easier.
Q. Will Brocodex 50 mg/1.25 mg/4 mg Syrup be more effective if taken in more than recommended dose?
No, taking a higher than the recommended dose may not be more effective, rather it may increase the chances of having some serious side effects and toxicity. If you experience increased severity of your symptoms, that are not relieved by the recommended doses, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.
