MUCOLITE TABLET contains Ambroxol, which belongs to a group of medicines called Respiratory system agents.

Phlegm is a thickened mucus secreted by the glands of respiratory passages and lungs, which generally occurs due to illness/irritation in affected individuals.

MUCOLITE TABLET is not recommended for use if you are allergic to ambroxol hydrochloride. Before taking MUCOLITE TABLET, inform your doctor if you have a predilection for the development of peptic ulcers, intolerance to certain sugars, lung problems (such as bronchial motor activity disorder), kidney problems (such as an impaired renal function), and/or severe liver disease.

MUCOLITE TABLET is not recommended for use in pregnant women (especially during the first three months of pregnancy) and is also not recommended for breastfeeding women.
