Ambroxol Fluidox 6mg/ml syrup it is a mucolytic adjuvant in the antibacterial treatment of respiratory infections in the presence of bronchial hypersecretion.
Active substance: 6 mg ambroxol/ml syrup.
Ambroxol is a specific thinner that acts on the viscosity and structure of mucus. It increases the production of pulmonary surfactant and stimulates ciliary activity. These actions result in improved flow and transport of mucus (mucociliary clearance). The improvement in mucociliary clearance, which has been demonstrated in clinical pharmacological studies, facilitates sputum and coughing.
