Bromhexin Pharmacodynamics
Mucolytic (secretolytic) remedy, has expectorant and mild anti-cough effect. Reduces sputum viscosity (depolymerizes mucoprotein and mucopolysaccharide fibers, increases the serous component of bronchial secretion); activates the atrial epithelium, increases volume and improves sputum discharge. Stimulates production of endogenous surfactant, which provides stability of alveolar cells during breathing. The effect is manifested in 2-5 days from the start of treatment.
