USES OF CHESTON EXPECTORANT
For symptomatic relief of productive cough
HOW CHESTON EXPECTORANT WORKS

CHESTON EXPECTORANT is a cough suppressant, whereas Bromhexine is a mucolytic that thins and breaks down phlegm, making it easier to cough up. Chlorpheniramine maleate is an antihistamine that blocks the binding of histamine (responsible for allergic reactions such as sneezing, watery and itchy eyes and a runny nose) to histamine H1 receptors, thus preventing allergic reactions. Guaifenesin is an expectorant that relieves chest congestion, making breathing easier by loosening and clearing phlegm from the lungs and making it easier to cough up.
