INTRODUCTION

MUCINAC 600MG contains Acetyl Cysteine which belongs to the group of medicines called Mucolytics. It is used in adults to treat acute airway diseases such as bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of bronchial tubes which carries air to the lungs), emphysema (disorder affecting the alveoli (tiny air sacs) of the lungs), mucoviscidosis (inherited life-threatening disorder that damages the lungs and digestive system) and bronchiectasis (condition in which the lung airways become damaged and making it hard to clear the mucus).

MUCINAC 600MG is not recommended for use in patients who are allergic to acetylcysteine. It is also not recommended for use in patients with bronchial asthma. Before taking MUCINAC 600MG, inform your doctor if you have stomach ulcers, liver diseases (such as non-alcoholic fatty acid disease) and chronic kidney disease.

It should be used with caution in pregnant and breastfeeding women only if it is clearly advised by the doctor. MUCINAC 600MG is not recommended for use in children and adolescents (below 18 years of age) and it should be used with caution in elderly patients.
