How effective is Benylin Children's Chesty Coughs?
During a chesty cough there is a build-up of phlegm in the airways and lungs. A cough indicates that the body is trying to get rid of the excess phlegm from the body. Benylin Children's Chesty Coughs syrup contains guaifenesin as an active ingredient. Guaifenesin is a cough expectorant for the relief of symptoms of acute productive (chesty) cough.
Guaifenesin works by loosening the mucus in the lungs and the airways to make it easier for the child to cough it up. It does this by increasing the volume of fluid produced in the airways and thus facilitating the removal of mucus from the body. It also effectively aids in relaxing the throat and chest so that coughing is less strenuous on the body.
