Broncholyte is a clinically proven, systematically active mucolytic agent. The moderately rapid onset of action is clinically manifested by an increase in sputum production which becomes evident 2-3 days after initiation of therapy. The breakdown of acid mucopolysaccharide fibres make the sputum thinner and less viscid and therefore more easily removed by coughing. Although sputum volume eventually decreases, its viscosity remains low for as long as treatment with Broncholyte is maintained. There is also an increased response to bronchodilator drugs such as Alupent and Berotec.



All forms of tracheobronchitis, emphysema with bronchitis, pneumoconiosis, chronic inflammatory pulmonary conditions, bronchiectasis, bronchitis with broncho spasm, asthma.



Occasional gastro-intestinal side effects may occur but these are most invariably mild.


Special Precautions

Studies in animals have given suggestion that Broncholyte has any teratogenic potential in humans. Nevertheless, as with any other drug, it is advisable to avoid use during the first trimester of pregnancy.
