It is used to treat an acute attack of asthma as well as for prevention of further asthma attacks. This medicine is not recommended for use in patients below 6 years of age.

Bromhexine:

Bromhexine is a mucolytic agent which reduces the thickness of sputum. It is used to treat conditions with abnormal mucus secretion such as a common cold, infections of the respiratory tract, influenza, etc. to allow the patient to breathe freely and deeply. It should be used with caution in patients with a known history of gastric ulcers due to the increased risk of severe adverse effects.

Menthol is a covalent organic compound made synthetically or obtained from peppermint or other mint oils. Forming clear or white waxy, crystalline substance, menthol is typically solid at room temperature. (-)-Menthol is the naturally-occurring and main form of menthol, and is assigned the (1R,2S,5R) configuration. Menthol mediates anesthetic properties and anti-irritating properties locally, thus it is widely used to relieve minor throat irritations
