About Ascoril LS Expectorant 100 ml
Ascoril LS Expectorant 100 ml consists of a combination of two medicines: cetirizine and ambroxol which is primarily used in the treatment of cough. An allergy is an immune system response to foreign elements typically not harmful to your body. These foreign elements are known as ‘allergens’. Allergic condition varies from person to person. Some might be allergic to certain foods and seasonal allergies like hay fever. While others might be allergic to pollen or pet dander. One of the symptoms of allergy is cough. Coughing occurs as a reflex action in the throat when there is mucus or any other foreign irritant in it.
Cetirizine belongs to a class of drugs called antihistamine or anti-allergic. It blocks the effects of a chemical messenger known as ‘histamine’ which is naturally involved in allergic reactions. It helps to provide relief from symptoms of allergy such as sneezing, running nose, watery eyes, itching, swelling and congestion or stiffness. Ambroxol is a mucolytic that thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out.
