About Zeriox-LS Syrup

Zeriox-LS Syrup is 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: 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. 

Zeriox-LS Syrup is a combination of three drugs, namely Levosalbutamol (bronchodilator), Ambroxol (mucolytic agent), and Guaifenesin (expectorant). Levosalbutamol belongs to the class of bronchodilators that work by relaxing muscles and widening the airways of the lungs. Ambroxol belongs to the class of mucolytic agents (cough/sputum thinner) that work by thinning and loosening phlegm (mucus) in the lungs, windpipe, and nose. Thereby helping to cough out easily. Guaifenesin belongs to the class of expectorants that works by increasing the volume of fluid in the airways, reducing the stickiness of mucus, and helping to remove it from the airways.

Take Zeriox-LS Syrup as prescribed. Your doctor will recommend how often you take Zeriox-LS Syrup based on your medical condition. Some people may experience nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, headache, dizziness, skin rash, tremor, stomach upset and diarrhoea. Most of these side effects of Zeriox-LS Syrup do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to Zeriox-LS Syrup or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is advised to inform your doctor before using Zeriox-LS Syrup. If you are suffering from fits or have a history of fits, please inform your doctor before taking Zeriox-LS Syrup as it may increase the risk of recurrent fits. If you have diabetes, regular monitoring of blood sugar levels is recommended while taking Zeriox-LS Syrup. Drink plenty of fluids while taking Zeriox-LS Syrup to loosen mucus. If you have diabetes, fits, high blood pressure, overactive thyroid, stomach ulcers, phenylketonuria (a birth defect that causes accumulation of amino acid, phenylalanine in the body), kidney, liver, or heart problems, inform your doctor before taking Zeriox-LS Syrup.

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.
