About Alkof DX Syrup 100 ml

Alkof DX Syrup 100 ml belongs to a class of medication called 'cough and cold preparations' primarily used to treat cough due to runny nose, sneezing, and throat irritation. Coughing (dry or productive) is a body's way of clearing irritants (like allergens, mucus or smoke) from airways and preventing infection. There are two types of coughs, namely: Dry cough and chesty cough. A dry cough is tickly and doesn't produce any vicious or thick mucus, while a chesty cough (wet cough) means mucous or sputum is produced to help clear your airways. 

Alkof DX Syrup 100 ml is a combination of two drugs, namely: Chlorphenamine maleate and Dextromethorphan hydrobromide. Chlorphenamine maleate works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance responsible for causing allergic reactions.  Dextromethorphan hydrobromide blocks the transmission of nerve signals from the cough centre in the brain to the muscles that produce cough. Together, Alkof DX Syrup 100 ml helps to relieve cough, cold and allergic symptoms. 

Take Alkof DX Syrup 100 ml with or without food as advised by your doctor with the help of a measuring cup. Your doctor will recommend how often you need to take Alkof DX Syrup 100 ml based on your medical condition. Some people may experience dry mouth/throat/nose, drowsiness, blurred vision, constipation, dizziness, restlessness. Most of these side effects of Alkof DX Syrup 100 ml do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Cough: Coughing is a body's way of clearing irritants (like allergens, mucus, or smoke) from airways and preventing infection. Coughs may be dry or productive. A productive cough (wet cough) brings up sputum (phlegm, mucus, and other matter) from the lungs. A dry cough does not produce any mucus or phlegm. It usually occurs due to irritation in the airways. Cough is commonly caused as a response to allergy or viral infection but coughing up mucus is possibly an indication of infection in the respiratory tract.
