Product Info

One caplet of Bronkaid provides the relief you need from the symptoms of mild intermittent asthma. Its bronchodilator works to open your airways. Then the expectorant helps loosen phlegm (mucus) and thin bronchial secretions. Coughs are made more productive, allowing you to better clear bronchial passageways and start breathing clearly again.

Bronkaid is an effective nonprescription medicine that’s only available behind the pharmacy counter. So talk to your Healthcare provider about your asthma management plan and the important role Bronkaid can play.

What is the purpose of ephedrine sulfate?

Caret Caret
Ephedrine sulfate is one of the active ingredients in Bronkaid® and is generally recognized as safe and effective by the FDA. It is a decongestant, which produces a narrowing of blood vessels allowing the person to breathe easier. Bronchodilators, such as ephedrine sulfate, act on specific receptors and cause the relaxation of bronchial smooth muscle, resulting in freer breathing and relief of chest tightness and wheezing. Ephedrine is the synthetic form of ephedra. In the synthetic form, the amount of ingredients per pill can be controlled whereas with herbal products they are not.

What is the purpose of guaifenesin?

Caret Caret
Guaifenesin is an expectorant that works to thin mucous making it easier to clear it from the lungs. It is believed to cause a reflex stimulation of bronchial glands, resulting in a decrease in the thickness of bronchial secretions.

Bronkaid® Caplets are available in both a 24 and a 60 count package.
