About Omituss P Syrup Mixed Fruit

Omituss P Syrup Mixed Fruit belongs to a class of respiratory medication called ‘expectorant' primarily used to treat vicious and excessive mucus in patients with asthma and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder) having a cough. It helps in dissolving hard phlegm (sputum/cough) which makes breathing difficult usually in respiratory problems like allergies, sinusitis, common cold, bronchitis, flu, etc. Coughing (dry or productive) is a body’s way of clearing irritants (like allergens, mucus, or smoke) from airways and preventing infection.

Omituss P Syrup Mixed Fruit is a combination of four drugs, namely: Guaifenesin (expectorant), Bromhexine (mucolytic agent), Terbutaline (bronchodilator), and Menthol (cooling agent). Guaifenesin belongs to the class of expectorants that works by increasing the volume of fluid in the airways, thereby reducing the stickiness or viscosity of mucus, and making it easier for airway passage. Bromhexine belongs to the class of mucolytic agents (cough/sputum thinner) that works by thinning and loosening phlegm (mucus) in the lungs, windpipe, and nose, making it easier to cough it out. Terbutaline belongs to the class of bronchodilators that relaxes muscles and widens the airways making breathing easier in people with respiratory complications. Menthol is a cooling agent that produces a cooling sensation and provides relief from minor throat irritation due to cough deposition.

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-colored, it indicates you may have allergies or a minor infection in the respiratory tract, and yellow or green mucus indicates a respiratory infection.
