For the temporary relief of cough and chest congestion due to cold and flu.
Robitussin Cough & Chest Congestion combines the action of the expectorant guaiphenesin and the cough suppressant dextromethorphan. Guaiphenesin is an expectorant that loosens and reduces the thickness of phlegm, making it easier to cough up. Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that acts on the cough centre in the brain to suppress a dry cough.
Robitussin Cough & Chest Congestion is a clear, red syrup with mentholated cherry flavour.
Each 10 ml contains 200 mg of guaiphenesin and 30 mg of dextromethorphan hydrobromide.
