Acefyl Syrup Uses

Acefyl syrup is a cough syrup composed of two active ingredients, acefylline and diphenhydramine, a bronchodilator and an antiallergic medication respectively. Acefyl syrup is used for suppressing coughs and allergies that cause coughing.

Acefylline is a bronchodilator, which means it relaxes and dilates the bronchial muscles. When you have asthma, the bronchial muscles constrict, due to which efficient gas exchange can not take place and your breathing is affected. Sometimes you may also have a cough due to asthma. So the acefylline can help relax the bronchial muscles, so that you can breathe with ease and asthma can be relieved.

Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine that is used for sneezing, allergy, hay fever, and insomnia. It is a sedating drug, which means it causes sleepiness. Diphenhydramine works by blocking the actions of histamine- an inflammatory mediator that causes allergy.
