INTRODUCTION

PULMOCLEAR TABLET is a combination of Acebrophylline and N-Acetylcysteine which belongs to the group of medicines called Bronchodilators and Mucolytics respectively. It is used in the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It can also be used to treat inflammation of the airways (such as bronchitis or cystic fibrosis) and reduce the onset of other complications caused due to mucus obstruction in the airways such as bronchospasm (paralysis of airways) and wheezing or shortness of breath.

Take PULMOCLEAR TABLET preferably with meals or as advised by your physician. Before taking PULMOCLEAR TABLET inform your doctor if you have any liver, kidney or heart problems. You must also inform your doctor if you have fits, stomach ulcers, viral infections, hypertension or hyperthyroidism as a precaution.

PULMOCLEAR TABLET is not recommended for use in pregnant and in breastfeeding women. The most common side effects of taking PULMOCLEAR TABLET are epigastric pain, stomach discomfort, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness, diarrhea and constipation. Consult your doctor if any of these side effects trouble you.

USES OF PULMOCLEAR TABLET

It is used to treat and prevent:

  • Asthma & COPD
  • Bronchitis (inflammation of the airways)
  • Cystic Fibrosis

HOW PULMOCLEAR TABLET WORKS

PULMOCLEAR TABLET is a bronchodilator with anti-inflammatory and mucolytic properties. It blocks the release of certain chemicals (such as phosphodiesterase) in the respiratory tract that triggers airway inflammation, swelling and narrowing. As a result, it widens the airways, and reduces airway inflammation. It also loosens the mucus accumulated in the airways which allows the air to pass through more freely through the airways and makes breathing easier.
