About Rexcof-LS Syrup 100 ml

Rexcof-LS Syrup 100 ml belongs to the class of medicines called 'expectorants' primarily used to treat cough associated with mucus. 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) produces mucous or sputum.

Rexcof-LS Syrup 100 ml is a combination of three drugs, namely Levosalbutamol, Ambroxol, and Guaiphenesin. Levosalbutamol works by relaxing muscles and widening the airways of the lungs. Ambroxol works by thinning and loosening phlegm (mucus) in the lungs, windpipe, and nose. Thereby, helps to cough out phlegm easily. Guaiphenesin increases the volume of fluid in the airways, reduces the stickiness of mucus, and helps to remove it from the airways. Together, Rexcof-LS Syrup 100 ml helps provide relief from cough.

Your doctor will recommend the dose and duration of Rexcof-LS Syrup 100 ml based on your medical condition. Some people may experience certain common side effects such as nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, headache, dizziness, skin rash, tremor, stomach upset and diarrhoea. Most of these side effects of Rexcof-LS 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.

Do not take Rexcof-LS Syrup 100 ml if you are allergic to any of its components. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Rexcof-LS Syrup 100 ml may cause dizziness and drowsiness, so drive or operate machinery only if you are alert.  Rexcof-LS Syrup 100 ml should be given to children only if prescribed by the doctor.
