Benylin Children’s Chesty Coughs provides effective relief from children’s chesty coughs. It is sugar & colour free, non-drowsy and strawberry flavour. Suitable for children aged 6 years and over.
How does it work?
Benylin children's chesty cough syrup contains the active ingredient guaifenesin.
Guaifenesin is a type of medicine called a cough expectorant. Expectorants are used to treat a productive or chesty cough, in which phlegm is coughed up.
Expectorants such as guaifenesin are thought to work by stimulating receptors in the stomach, causing a reflex increase in the volume of fluid produced in the airways. This decreases the thickness of the secretions in the airways, thus loosening phlegm and making it easier to cough up.
