About Mucolite Syrup 100 ml

Mucolite Syrup 100 ml belongs to a class of drugs called 'mucolytic agents' (cough/sputum thinner) primarily used to treat acute (short term) and chronic (long term) respiratory diseases associated with excess mucus. Acute respiratory diseases are initially associated with dry, irritating cough, hoarseness in laryngitis (swelling of the voice box) or burning sensation in chest due to bronchitis (swelling of the lining of bronchial tubes). Then, wet mucus forms and continuous coughing out of sputum occurs. In chronic respiratory diseases, both dry irritating cough and wet cough with mucus occur.

Mucolite Syrup 100 ml contains Ambroxol that works by thinning and loosening phlegm (mucus) in lungs, windpipe and nose. Mucolite Syrup 100 ml breakdown the acid mucopolysaccharide fibres that make the mucous (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.
