Each 5mL of PENTAKOF-LS syrup contains ambroxol HCl 30mg, levosalbutamol 1mg, guaiphenesin 50 mg and menthol 0.5mg.
PENTAKOF-LS is the brand name for decongestant and expectorant formulation that addresses several bronchopulmonary disorders like cough, common cold and congestion in the chest area.
Ambroxol promotes mucus clearance by decreasing its viscosity and increasing its volume. Ambroxol facilitates expectoration and eases productive cough. This drug helps the patients with congestion, breathe freely and deeply.
Levosalbutamol is an effective bronchodilator that addresses asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This drug promotes muscle relaxation by acting as a Ŗ2 adrenergic receptor agonist. It increases the levels of cAMP, which controls the release of inflammatory mediators from the mast cells; this way, it also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.
Guaiphenesin is also a strong expectorant that works by reducing the viscosity of the mucus and increasing its volume; this will ease expectoration of the sputum.
Mentholís activity in this formulation is to relieve the cough and have a soothing effect on the throat.
