Each 5mL PENTAKOF-TM syrup contains ambroxol HCl 15mg, terbutaline sulfate 1.25mg, guaiphenesin 50mg and menthol 2.5mg.
PENTAKOF-TM is a chest decongestant and antiasthmatic formulation that is used to treat various bronchopulmonary diseases from chest congestion to lung inflammation.
Ambroxol HCl is a bronchodilator and mucolytic agent that promotes mucus clearance by decreasing its viscosity. This mucus-thinning drug clears the airway by breaking down the hard mucus and allows the patients to breathe deeply. In other words, this drug promotes a productive cough.
Terbutaline sulfate is a selective beta 2-adrenergic bronchodilator and relaxes the smooth muscles in the bronchial region. This drug addresses the wheezing and shortness of breath, which are commonly observed in the inflammatory disorders of lungs.
Guaiphenesin is a cough decongestant that works effectively on both productive and non-productive cough. It increases the mucus secretion in the respiratory tract and eases the mucus expectoration.
Menthol has a soothing effect on the throat and it is also observed to relieve cough.
