Dextromethorphan hydrobromide is an antitussive agent with activity similar to codeine. However, it does not have narcotic action nor does it depress respiration.

Chlorpheniramine maleate is an antihistamine compound with a high degree of potency and relative absence of undesirable side effects. As well as suppressing allergic reactions associated with respiratory infections, it has mildly sedative properties.

Ephedrine is a sympathomimetic drug with an action similar to adrenaline although more prolonged. It acts as a bronchodilator and has been used to relieve cough in bronchial spasm in dogs.
