About Stivcuf SI 15mg/50mg/2.5mg Tablet

Stivcuf SI 15mg/50mg/2.5mg Tablet is used to treat cough associated with mucus. Coughing (dry or productive) is the body’s way of clearing irritants (like allergens, mucus, or smoke) from airways and preventing infection. There are two types of coughs, namely: Dry cough and chesty cough. A dry cough is tickly and doesn't produce any vicious or thick mucus, while a chesty cough (wet cough) means mucous or sputum is produced to help clear your airways.

Stivcuf SI 15mg/50mg/2.5mg Tablet is a combination of three drugs: Ambroxol (mucolytic agent), Guaifenesin (expectorant), and Terbutaline (bronchodilator). Ambroxol belongs to the class of mucolytic agents (cough/sputum thinner) that work by thinning and loosening phlegm (mucus) in the lungs, windpipe, and nose. Guaifenesin belongs to the class of expectorants that increase the volume of fluid in the airways, reduce the stickiness of mucus, and remove it from the airways. Terbutaline belongs to the class of bronchodilators that relax muscles and widen the airways. Thus, it makes breathing easier.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Cough: Coughing is the body’s way of clearing irritants (like allergens, mucus, or smoke) from airways and preventing infection. Coughs may be dry or productive. A productive cough (wet cough) brings up sputum (phlegm, mucus, and other matter) from the lungs. Cough is commonly caused as a response to allergy or viral infection, but coughing up mucus is possibly an indication of infection in the respiratory tract. If you are coughing thick, solid white mucus, you may have a bacterial infection in the airways. If the mucus is clear or light-coloured, you may have allergies or a minor infection in the respiratory tract, and yellow or green mucus indicates a respiratory infection.
