Many people are confused about purchasing a cough syrup. They are unsure if to buy an expectorant or a suppressant, and that uncertainty can oftentimes keep a person from getting better when ill. Brooksville, Florida-based pharmaceuticals manufacturer MCR American Pharmaceuticals explains the differences.

Brooksville, Florida — June 28, 2012

An expectorant is a type of medication that's used to loosen mucus in the lungs, throat and bronchi. Expectorants thin the mucus that blocks the air tubes leading to the lungs. Thus making it easier to cough up the mucus.

MCR American Pharmaceuticals explains that expectorants are beneficial in that they make coughing up mucus easier and less irritating, which eventually leads to better breathing.

On the other hand, cough suppressants simply reduce the urge to cough. MCR American Pharmaceuticals warns against using cough suppressants if the cough is wet sounding and produces mucus. Yet if the cough does not produce mucus than patients can go ahead and use cough suppressants.

In addition, cough suppressants may be useful in minimizing coughs, and can aid in sleeping. Yet it's important to drink plenty of water because such medications are known to cause dehydration.

MCR American Pharmaceuticals offers a variety of medications that can help reduce the urge to cough and cure the ailment. MCR American Pharmaceuticals offers several medications such as Maxiphen DM, Maxifed DMX, Maxifed DM, and Congestinex C, that can effectively clear post nasal drip.

Maxiphen DM is an expectorant, decongestant, and suppressant that contains Pseudoephedrine, Guaifenesin, and Dextromethorphan and is strong enough to cure post nasal drip cough. Maxiphen DM product eliminates excess mucus, and loosens mucus in the lungs, throat and bronchi. Furthermore, it helps relieve a stopped-up nose caused by a cold virus or the flu, sinusitis, or allergies.

Maxifed DMX is a decongestant, expectorant, and cough suppressant combination that contains Pseudoephedrine, Guaifenesin, and Dextromethorphan. The Maxifed DMX product eliminates excess mucus, and loosens mucus in the lungs, throat and bronchi.

Maxifed DM is an expectorant, decongestant, and suppressant that contains Pseudoephedrine, Guaifenesin, and Dextromethorphan and is strong enough to cure post nasal drip cough. Maxifed DM works to de-clog your nose and help you breath better.

And lastly, Congestinex C is an antihistamine, available in grape flavor, is recommended for patients who have post-nasal drip cough. This product is unique to most medications in that it is suitable for ages two and older. For the most part, FDA experts do not recommend young children consume cold-fighting over-the-counter medications, yet Congestinex C is safe for those older than age two. MCR American Pharmaceuticals designed Congestinex C to suit young children by using lower doses of Chlorpheniramine, and Dextromethorphan.

"We created Congestinex C to relieve cold and flu-like symptoms for even the youngest of our patients," said David Ambrose.

The benefits in choosing MCR American Pharmaceuticals' products are the affordable price and customer service. Most pharmaceutical companies charge hefty prices for their products and offer little personal service, however, MCR American Pharmaceuticals recently restructured its company and cut its middleman, therefore the company caters directly to consumers and medical professionals. By losing the middleman, MCR American Pharmaceuticals ensures its customers receive affordable medications and better service. Customers can now purchase their medications on the company's Web site.

"I recently purchased Congestinex C for my five-year old son. In a matter of days he was feeling better and was able to return to school," said an MCR American Pharmaceuticals' customer. "I purchased the medication on the MCR American Pharmaceuticals Web site and was very pleased with the service."
