Ambi 80-780

Guaifenesin/pseudoephedrine is used for the temporary relief of nose/sinus/ear congestion and cough with phlegm caused by the common cold, allergies, or infection. Pseudoephedrine is called a sympathomimetic and works by decreasing the swelling of nose and ear tissues and opening 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.
