Benylin Children’s Chesty Cough Syrup


BENYLIN® Children’s Chesty Coughs Non-Drowsy works to thin and loosen the phlegm that is causing the cough, allowing it to be coughed up more easily, relieving discomfort.

It comes in sugar-free, strawberry flavour and has a non-drowsy formula to help your child feel better.


How it works

BENYLIN® Children’s Chesty Coughs Non-Drowsy contains an active ingredient, guaifenesin, which works in the body by thinning and loosening phlegm build up in the chest, making it easier to cough up.

What is a chesty cough?

Chesty coughs are caused by a build-up of phlegm and the cough mechanism kicks in to try and get rid of this excess phlegm to get it out of the body.
