As the name suggests, this remedy helps to drain mucus wherever it lies e.g. from the nasal passages & nasal sinuses as well as the ears, thus easing sinus congestion and the ‘snotty nose syndrome’ in children where painful blocked ears are a problem.
It is also very effective for mucus on the chest where the remedy helps to thin the mucus, so that it is easier to cough up and expel i.e. for ‘wet’ coughs with much phlegm or mucus.
The remedy also reduces mucus in the throat that is difficult to clear.
One dose is 3-5 pillules sucked under the tongue in a clean mouth, this applies to adults, children and animals alike.

Thereafter dose 3 times a day as required for 3-5 days.
