(and dosage form)
Each 5 mL contains:
A 10.1 Antitussives and expectorants.
Borsdruppels has demulcent and expectorant properties. Its demulcent action protects the surfaces of the pharynx from irritation and so reduces the frequency of coughing. Its expectorant action produces an increase in the secretions of the respiratory tract and so reduces the viscosity of the mucous, thereby inducing a productive cough which is less painful to the patient.
Borsdruppels provides a symptomatic relief from cough, croup and bronchitis.
Borsdruppels should not be administered to patients suffering from hypertension.
