Delkodin CC oral suspension

Treatment for dry cough

Composition:

Each 5mL of DELKODIN CC contains ambroxol 15mg and guaiphenesin 100mg.

Description:

DELKODIN CC is the brand name for the cough-relieving and decongestant formulation of ambroxol and guaiphenesin. The combination works as an expectorant and relaxes the bronchial smooth muscles. DELKODIN CC is effective against both productive and unproductive cough and against the cough caused due to active and passive smoking.

Ambroxol:

Ambroxol possesses potent mucokinetic and secretolytic properties, with which, it promotes the removal of the mucus secreted in the respiratory tract, supports expectoration, promotes and eases the productive cough and eventually allow the patients to breathe freely. Different mechanisms employed by ambroxol to aid mucus clearance are breaking up the phlegm, mucus production stimulation and stimulation of synthesis and release of surfactants.

Guaiphenesin:

Guaiphenesin is also a potent expectorant that enhances the phlegm output by making the secretion less viscous or thinner. This less viscous secretion promotes ciliary action, which converts an unproductive and dry cough to a productive one and eventually eases the phlegm output.
