DARCET Cough Syrup for Croup Cough
Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride – Diphenhydramine Hcl is an antihistamine used to relieve symptoms of allergy, hay fever, and the common cold. These symptoms include rash, itching, watery eyes, itchy eyes/nose/throat, cough, runny nose, and sneezing. It is also used to prevent and treat nausea, vomiting, and dizziness caused by motion sickness. Diphenhydramine can also be used to help you relax and fall asleep.
Ammonium Chloride – Ammonium chloride is used as an expectorant in cough medicine. Its expectorant action is caused by irritative action on the bronchial mucosa, which causes the production of excess respiratory tract fluid, which presumably is easier to cough up. Ammonium salts are an irritant to the gastric mucosa and may induce nausea and vomiting.
Sodium Citrate – Sodium Citrate is a mucolytic, an agent which breaks down mucus, so that coughing up phlegm is easier.
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Darcet cough syrup, a combination of Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride, Ammonium Chloride, Sodium Citrate and Menthol is an antitussive and expectorant cough mixture. Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine that relieves congestion and post-nasal drips. Ammonium Chloride is the expectorant which thins mucus. Sodium Citrate is a mucolytic, an agent which breaks down mucus, so that coughing up phlegm is easier. Menthol acts as a soothing agent in Darcet cough syrup.
