Benylin Mucus Cough Night

Benylin Mucus Cough Night provides relief from coughing and related congestive symptoms during the night and aids restful sleep in adults and children aged 12 years and over. It contains three active ingredients:
  • Guaifenesin: this an expectorant that helps to thin and loosen mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough up and lighten the weighty feeling on the chest.
  • Diphenhydramine: this is an antihistamine that helps relieve coughing, dries secretions in the nose and chest and helps you to get a good night's sleep, helping your body to recover.
  • Levomenthol: this helps to relieve nasal congestion, making it easier to breathe.

Directions

  • Take two 5ml spoonfuls at bedtime followed by two 5ml spoonfuls every 6 hours, as required.
