Tired of all the coughing that's not only hurting you physically but also straining some of your relationships? Worried about your little one's health or your parent's well-being? Studies have shown that the solution to this problems may be on a mucolytic agent called bromhexine.
Bromhexine treats respiratory disorders, particularly those associated with sticky and excessive mucus. It makes the phlegm thinner and clears the respiratory tract of the viscous substance. This is made possible as bromhexine is a synthetic derivative of vasicine (peganine), a quinazoline alkaloid isolated from nature, that increases bronchial secretion. In some instances, its metabolite, ambroxol, replaces it.
In various formulations, bromhexine is contained in syrups, tablets and oral solutions. It is commonly used and is known to be a normally safe expectorant, with considerations for proper dosages for different age groups.
There are many brands of mucolytic agents in the market. These are the potential applications: cough, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, bronchitis, bronchiectasis, emphysema, cystic fibrosis.
