    Bromhexine The drug is classified under a group of medications known as expectorants or mucolytic agents. Bromhexine acts by thinning the mucus, which facilitates expectoration and relieves cough. Guaifenesin The drug is an expectorant that increases the output of phlegm and bronchial secretions by reducing the thickness of mucus and adhesiveness. The increased flow of viscous secretions facilitates ciliary action and changes an unproductive and dry cough to the productive and less frequent cough. Guaifenesin increases the efficacy of the mucociliary mechanism and helps remove accumulated secretions in the airway. Menthol This drug reduces the stomach cramps and spasms in the digestive system. When applied topically, it relieves pain by causing warmth on the skin surface. Terbutaline It is classified under a group of medications called beta agonists.
