About Benadryl Cough Formula Syrup 150 ml

Benadryl Cough Formula Syrup 150 ml belongs to a class of medications called ‘expectorants’ used to treat cough. Coughing (dry or productive) is the 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.

Benadryl Cough Formula Syrup 150 ml is a combination of four drugs, namely: Ammonium chloride (expectorants), Diphenhydramine hydrochloride (antihistamine), Sodium citrate (mucolytic), and ethanol. Ammonium chloride works by increasing the volume of fluid in the airways, reducing the stickiness of mucus. Diphenhydramine hydrochloride works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance responsible for causing allergic reactions. Sodium citrate works by thinning and loosening phlegm (mucus) in the lungs, windpipe, and nose. Thereby, it helps to cough out easily. Ethanol acts as a preservative.

    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. 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. If you are coughing thick, solid white mucus, it indicates you may have a bacterial infection in the airways. If the mucus is clear or light-coloured, it indicates you may have allergies or minor infection in the respiratory tract and yellow or green mucus indicates a respiratory infection.
