    Ambroxol Ambroxol is a mucolytic agent which is used in the treatment of lung diseases such as bronchitis, chronic inflammatory pulmonary conditions, tracheobronchitis, emphysema with bronchitis pneumoconiosis, and bronchiectasis. Levosalbutamol Levosalbutamol is a bronchodilator used for the prevention, improvement, and treatment of asthma, bronchospasm, and other respiratory disorders.

Guaifenesin Guaifenesin is used to treat symptoms associated with common cold, flu, and breathing problems, such as coughing and chest congestion.

    Mode of drug action


    Ambroxol Ambroxol acts by breaking down the fibers of the mucus, in reducing the viscosity and thinning the sputum. Thus, the sputum can be readily removed through coughing. Levosalbutamol Salbutamol stimulates certain receptors located on the smooth muscles of the lung. This leads to the Levosalbutamol of an enzyme called cyclic AMP. It relaxes the bronchial muscles and decreases the airway resistance. Thus, salbutamol dilates the bronchi and is used as a medicine to relieve shortness of breath, asthma, and other lung disorders. Guaifenesin Guaifenesin is an expectorant that increases the output of phlegm and bronchial secretions by reducing the thickness of mucus and adhesiveness. The increased flow of viscous secretions facilitates ciliary action and changes an unproductive and dry cough to the productive and less frequent cough. Guaifenesin increases the efficacy of the mucociliary mechanism and helps remove accumulated secretions in the airway.
