DESCRIPTION:

Diphenhyramine is an antihistamine that relieves congestion and post-nasal drips. Ammonium Chloride is the expectorant which thins mucus. Terpine Hydrate is an expectorant that helps to thin and loosen mucus in the lungs, making it easier to cough up the mucus. Sodium Citrate is a mucolytic, an agent which breaks down mucus, so that coughing up phlegm is easier. Menthol gives a sensation of coolness.
