About ABIWAYS TABLET

ABIWAYS TABLET belongs to the class of drugs called ‘mucolytic agents’ (cough/sputum thinner) primarily used to prevent and treat symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) such as shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing (whistling sound while breathing). COPD is a group of lung diseases with emphysema (shortness of breath) and chronic bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of bronchial tubes).

ABIWAYS TABLET is a combination of two drugs, namely: Acebrophylline (mucolytic and bronchodilator) and Acetylcysteine (mucolytic agent/sputum thinner). Acebrophylline belongs to the class of bronchodilators with additional mucolytic properties and works by relaxing muscles and widening the airways of the lungs. Acetylcysteine belongs to the class of mucolytic agents (cough/sputum thinner) that works by thinning and loosening phlegm (mucus) in lungs, windpipe and nose. ABIWAYS TABLET breakdown the acid mucopolysaccharide fibres that make the mucus (sputum) thinner and less dense/viscous removing sputum efficiently by coughing. However, the viscosity of sputum remains low for as long as treatment is maintained. Together, they help to cough out easily and makes breathing easier by opening airways.

Take ABIWAYS TABLET with or without food and swallow whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew or break it. Your doctor will recommend you how often you take ABIWAYS TABLET based on your medical condition. Some people may experience diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, runny nose, dizziness, heartburn, stomach pain, skin rash, drowsiness, cool and moist skin. Most of these side effects of ABIWAYS TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Drink plenty of fluids to thin mucus and lubricate your throat while taking ABIWAYS TABLET. ABIWAYS TABLET is not recommended for use during pregnancy. If you are breastfeeding, it is advised to inform your doctor before taking ABIWAYS TABLET. Severe skin reactions such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome (a serious and rare disorder of skin and mucus membranes) or toxic epidermal necrolysis (skin blistering or skin peeling) have been rarely reported in some patients. However, if you notice any skin rash worsening with mucosal lesions or blisters, stop taking ABIWAYS TABLET and contact your doctor immediately. Do not take ABIWAYS TABLET if you have heart rhythm disorder that causes fast heartbeats.
