Uses of Ambroxol

Ambroxol is primarily used to treat respiratory conditions characterized by excessive mucus production, such as bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and other conditions affecting the airways.

Therapeutic Category

Ambroxol: Expectorants and mucolytics

How Ambroxol works

Ambroxol works by facilitating the expectoration of mucus by breaking down acid mucopolysaccharide fibers (sugar molecules responsible for mucus production) and stimulates surfactant (an anti-glue agent) that prevents adhesion of mucus to the bronchial wall thus preventing its accumulation and providing clearance in the airway due to acute and chronic respiratory diseases in affected individuals.

Common side effects of Ambroxol

  • taste disturbance
  • numbness in the throat and mouth
  • gastrointestinal disturbances such as stomach pain, heartburn, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, and vomiting

When to consult your doctor

Consult your doctor if you experience:

  • Signs of severe skin reactions such as skin rash on the mucus membranes of mouth, throat, nose, eyes, and/or genitals

Health Tips for Ambroxol

  • Follow your doctor's instructions and take Ambroxol as prescribed. Do not exceed the recommended dose and do not take it for a longer duration than prescribed
  • Drinking plenty of water can help thin out the mucus, making it easier to cough up and expel. Adequate hydration is essential for maintaining overall respiratory health
  • Alcohol and smoking can irritate the respiratory tract and worsen respiratory conditions. It's best to avoid these substances while taking Ambroxol
  • Inform your doctor about any other medications, supplements, or herbal products you are taking before taking Ambroxol
  • Ambroxol is not recommended for use in pregnancy and breastfeeding women
