Typical usage: Potent mucolytic and mucokinetic agent, capable of bringing out bronchial secretion especially mucous plugs. Chronic obstructive lung disease and bronchiectisis.
Side Effects: May lead to Dizziness, Headache, Sweating, Skin RashX, Bronchospasm, GI disturbance.
Drug Interaction: No known significant interactions with other medicines.
Mechanism Of Action: Bromhexine is an oral mucolytic agent with a low level of associated toxicity. Bromhexine acts on the mucus at the formative stages in the glands, within the mucus-secreting cells. Bromhexine disrupts the structure of acid mucopolysaccharide fibres in mucoid sputum and produces a less viscous mucus, which is easier to expectorate.
There is positive evidence of human fetal risk based on adverse reaction data from investigational or marketing experience or studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks.
There is positive evidence of risk to a breastfed infant or to breastmilk production, but the benefits of use in breastfeeding mothers may be acceptable despite the risk to the infant (e.g. if the drug is needed in a life-threatening situation or for a serious disease for which safer drugs cannot be used or are ineffective).
