Biochemdryl Syrup 100 ml belongs to a class of medication called ‘antihistamine’ (anti-allergic) primarily used to treat allergic symptoms (like sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose, itchy nose/throat), common cold symptoms, and cough. An allergy is an immune system response to foreign elements typically not harmful to your body. These foreign elements are known as ‘allergens.’ It is also used to induce sleep, treat Parkinson’s disease, and relieve cough caused by minor throat or airway irritation.
Biochemdryl Syrup 100 ml is a combination drug containing three medicines: Diphenhydramine, Ammonium Chloride, Sodium Citrate. Diphenhydramine blocks a natural substance (histamine) during an allergic reaction. Besides this, the drying effects of Biochemdryl Syrup 100 ml on allergic symptoms (like watery eyes and runny nose) are caused by blocking another natural substance (acetylcholine). Ammonium chloride decreases mucus’ stickiness, and Sodium citrate as a mucolytic loosens the mucus and makes it easier to cough out. Together it helps relieve allergy symptoms like sneezing, running nose, watery eyes, itching, swelling, congestion, or stiffness.
