DESCRIPTION:
Ambroxol is the metabolite of bromhexine and a mucolytic agent. Ambroxol acts as secretolytic agent used in the treatment of respiratory diseases associated with viscid or excessive mucus. Guaiphenesin is an expectorant that increases respiratory tract fluid secretions and helps loosen phlegm and bronchial secretions. Phenylephrine (as phenylephrine hydrochloride) is a selective α1-adrenergic receptor agonist used primarily as a decongestant. Levocetirizine (as levocetirizine hydrochloride) is a third-generation non-sedative antihistamine, developed from the second-generation antihistamine cetirizine. 
 
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Ambroxol facilitates mucociliary clearance by intensifying the motion of the cilia present on the ciliated respiratory epithelium. By reducing the viscosity of secretions, guaiphenesin increases the efficiency of the mucociliary mechanism in removing accumulated secretions from the upper and lower airway. Phenylephrine constricts the blood vessels in the nasal mucous membranes and allows  the air passages to open up. Chemically, levocetirizine is the active enantiomer of cetirizine. It reduces allergic vasodilatation and nasal mucosal congestion commonly seen in upper respiratory infections and allergies.
