Form of issue
The main forms of the drug are Bromhexine tablets from 10 to 100 pieces per pack and Bromhexine syrup to 50, 60 or 100 ml in a vial.
Antitussive, secretolitic (mucolytic), expectorant.
Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics
The medicine Bromhexine is characterized by secretolitic (mucolytic) and expectorant properties, from which the tablets and syrup of the drug are used for dry cough in adults and children. The secretolitic efficacy of bromhexine is due to its ability to thin and depolymerize mucoprotein and mucopolysaccharide fibers of bronchial secretions. Also of great importance in the effectiveness of bromhexine treatment is stimulation of the formation of a surfactant, a substance of a surface active nature that lines the lungs of the lungs, thereby enhancing the protective function of the pulmonary system. In addition to its main effects, the drug has a weak antitussive effect.
Oral (ingestion) reception of bromhexine leads to its almost complete absorption (99%) of the gastrointestinal tract for 30 minutes. Due to the "first pass" effect through the liver, the drug has a low bioavailability (about 20%). Binding to plasma proteins is quite high. It is able to penetrate the placental and blood-brain barrier. Hepatic metabolic transformations pass through oxidation and demethylation. T1 / 2 due to slow reverse tissue diffusion averages 15 hours. Excretion is carried out mostly by the kidneys. Has the ability to cumulate in the body. With kidney pathologies, the excretion of metabolic products is disrupted.

If an overdose is detected in the first 60-120 minutes, you should induce vomiting and rinse the stomach. Subsequently, symptomatic treatment is indicated.
Do not prescribe in parallel with antitussive drugs (for example, codeine-containing), due to difficulty in secreting the secretion of the bronchi.
A combination with NSAIDs can irritate the gastrointestinal mucosa and even lead to the formation of erosions and ulcers.

Reviews about Bromhexine
As a rule, reviews about Bromhexine of adult patients who understand what exactly the tablets of the drug are for, namely, for liquefying viscous sputum for the purpose of its prompt elimination, are of a positive nature. The drug in most cases copes well with its task and, with few exceptions, does not lead to side effects. The situation is slightly more complicated when it comes to small patients and their moms who want to cure their child's cough as soon as possible, and in case this does not happen quickly, they are ready to negatively speak about any medication.
