About MUCOPHYLIN TABLET

MUCOPHYLIN TABLET belongs to the class of drugs called bronchodilators primarily used to prevent and treat symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Asthma is a chronic (long-term) respiratory condition in which airways narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty in breathing. COPD is a group of lung diseases with emphysema (shortness of breath) and chronic bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of bronchial tubes).

MUCOPHYLIN TABLET contains Acebrophylline that works by relaxing muscles and widening the airways of the lungs. Additionally, MUCOPHYLIN TABLET also acts as mucolytic (cough/sputum thinner) agent and helps in thinning and loosening phlegm (mucus) in lungs, windpipe and nose. Thereby, it helps to cough out easily and makes breathing easier by opening airways.

MUCOPHYLIN TABLET is available in both oral capsule and syrup dosage forms. The syrup form of MUCOPHYLIN TABLET should be taken with food as advised by your doctor. The capsule form of MUCOPHYLIN TABLET should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew or break it. Your doctor will recommend you how often you take MUCOPHYLIN TABLET based on your medical condition. Some people may experience diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, heartburn, stomach discomfort, skin rash or drowsiness. Most of these side effects of MUCOPHYLIN TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to MUCOPHYLIN TABLET or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. If your breathing worsens or you often wake up at night with asthma, experience chest tightness in the morning or lasts longer than usual, please consult a doctor immediately as these might be signs indicating that your asthma is not controlled properly and requires an alternate or additional treatment. Regular monitoring of potassium levels is recommended while taking MUCOPHYLIN TABLET as it may cause low potassium levels in the blood. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is advised to inform your doctor before using MUCOPHYLIN TABLET. Do not take MUCOPHYLIN TABLET if you have heart rhythm disorder that causes fast heartbeats. Avoid taking MUCOPHYLIN TABLET if you have low blood pressure, irregular heartbeats, hemodynamic instability (unstable blood pressure), had a heart attack, kidney or liver diseases. If you have hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), irregular heartbeats, viral infections, heart failure, high blood pressure, fits, gastric or duodenal ulcers, heart diseases, kidney or liver insufficiency, inform your doctor before taking MUCOPHYLIN TABLET.
