About Welminic LS Syrup 100 ml

Welminic LS Syrup 100 ml is a combination of respiratory medication used to treat cough associated with mucus. 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. 

Welminic LS Syrup 100 ml consists of three medicines: Ambroxol, Guaifenesin and Salbutamol. Ambroxol is an 'expectorant', which promotes the secretion of sputum/cough and a 'mucolytic agent' that makes sputum less viscous to make breathing easier. On the other hand, Salbutamol belongs to the class of drugs known as 'bronchodilators' that widen and relax the airways (bronchi) of the lungs. Guaifenesin is also an 'expectorant'. It works by reducing the thickness or viscosity of bronchial secretions (phlegm) and increasing mucus flow making it easier to cough. 

Your doctor will decide the dose and duration of the course based on the severity of your disease. Like every other medication, Welminic LS Syrup 100 ml also has common side effects like nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, stomach pain, upset stomach, dizziness, headache, skin rash, tremor (shakiness), palpitations (uneven heartbeat), muscle cramps, and increased heart rate. These side effects, if occurred, generally go away during the treatment. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Let your doctor know if you have any allergic reactions to Welminic LS Syrup 100 ml or any other medication. It is mandatory to inform your doctor if you have heart, liver, kidney diseases, stomach ulcers, seizure (fits), high blood pressure, thyroid disorders, diabetes, inflammation of air passages, lung disorders, and difficulty breathing before taking Welminic LS Syrup 100 ml. Check with your doctor if you plan to conceive, are pregnant or breastfeeding. Avoid alcohol while taking Welminic LS Syrup 100 ml, since it can worsen the dizziness and sleepiness.

    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 a minor infection in the respiratory tract, and yellow or green mucus indicates a respiratory infection.
