  • ACTIONS

    This product combines the expectorant, guaifenesin, with the cough suppressant, codeine. Guaifenesin enhances the output of lower respiratory tract fluid. The enhanced flow of less viscid secretions promotes and facilitates the removal of mucus. Codeine is a centrally acting agent which elevates the threshold for cough.

    As a result, dry, unproductive coughs become more productive and less frequent.

  • INDICATIONS

    Temporarily controls cough due to minor throat and bronchial irritation as may occur with the common cold or inhaled irritants. Helps loosen phlegm (mucus) and thin bronchial secretions to make coughs more productive.

  • CONTRAINDICATIONS

    Hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients.
