Remedy for Productive Cough



Each DELKODIN softgel capsule contains chlorpheniramine maleate 2mg, dextromethorphan hydrobromide 10mg and phenylephrine hydrochloride 5mg


DELKODIN is a nasal decongestant combination that works by reducing the cough reflex in the brain, controlling the activity of histamines and lastly causing vasoconstriction to relieve the nasal congestion.

Chlorpheniramine is a histamine H1 antagonist that belongs to the class of alkylamines and it works by binding to the H1 receptors. By binding to the histamine H1 receptor, chlorpheniramine blocks the activity of the endogenous histamine and provides temporary relief from the allergic reactions like sneezing, watery and itchy eyes and running nose. Chlorpheniramine does not have any drowsiness or sedative effects like other antihistamines.

Dextromethorphan works on CNS and raises the threshold for coughing. Dextromethorphan is converted to dextrorphan in the liver, which then crosses the blood-brain barrier in order to act on the cough center in the medulla and suppress the cough reflex.

Phenylephrine is a powerful vasoconstrictor that constricts the mucosa of the respiratory tract and thereby decreases the swelling of the blood vessels in the nose. This drug selectively acts on the alpha-1 adrenergic agonist and exerts the decongestant action in the nasal cavity. It reduces the discomfort and eases the breathing.
