Robitussin Chesty Cough with Congestion is a medicine that contains the active ingredients guaifenesin and pseudoephedrine hydrochloride.
Every 5ml of liquid contains 100mg of guaifenesin and 30mg of pseudoephedrine hydrochloride.
Guaifenesin belongs to a group of medicines called cough expectorants and works by changing an unproductive cough to a cough that is more productive and less frequent. Pseudoephedrine hydrochloride belongs to a group of medicines called nasal decongestants and works by providing symptomatic relief of the common cold.
