SKU: Lytex SR Capsule

Ambroxol hydrochloride BP 75 mg


Ambroxol is a metabolite of Bromhexine. It has been proven that it possesses mucokinetic 

(improvement in mucus transport) and secretolytic (liquefies secretion) properties. Ambroxol stimulates the serous cells of the glands of the mucus membrane of bronchi, increasing the content of mucus secretion. The mucolytic effect is associated with depolymerization and splitting of mucoproteins and mucopolysaccharide fibres, which leads to reduction in the viscosity of mucus. Expectoration of mucus is facilitated and breathing is eased considerably. It stimulates production of phospholipids of surfactant by alveolar cells. Ambroxol has anti-inflammatory porperties. In patient with COPD, it imporves airway patency. Ambroxol alsoexhibits anti-oxidant activity. Long-term use is possible because of the good tolerability of the preparation.
