AMBI 60-580
Oral


This medicine is used for the temporary relief of nose/sinus/ear stuffiness and cough with phlegm caused by the common cold, allergies, or infection. This product contains 2 medicines. Pseudoephedrine is called a sympathomimetic decongestant and works by opening blocked ears and nose passages. Guaifenesin is called an expectorant. It works by making phlegm in the breathing tubes more liquid. This helps the cough to clear phlegm better.Do not use this medication in children younger than 2 years unless specifically directed by the doctor. To decrease the risk for serious side effects, carefully follow all of the doctor's dosage directions. Do not give other cough and cold medication that might contain the same or similar ingredients (see also Drug Interactions section). Ask your doctor or pharmacist about other ways to relieve cough and cold symptoms (e.g., saline nose drops/spray, using a humidifier or infant nasal suction bulb).
