About OVANAC PLUS TABLET

OVANAC PLUS TABLET belongs to a class of drugs called 'mucolytic agents' (cough/sputum thinner) primarily used to treat respiratory diseases associated with excessive mucus. Additionally, OVANAC PLUS TABLET in injection form is used to treat paracetamol overdose. 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.

OVANAC PLUS TABLET contains 'Acetylcysteine' that works by thinning and loosening phlegm (mucus) in lungs, windpipe and nasal passage. OVANAC PLUS 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.

OVANAC PLUS TABLET is available in injection, oral syrup and tablet dosage forms. A doctor or nurse gives the injection form of OVANAC PLUS TABLET. Take the liquid form of OVANAC PLUS TABLET as advised by your doctor. OVANAC PLUS TABLET in oral tablet form is to be taken with food to avoid stomach upset and should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew or break it.
