Hystalin Plus Expectorant


Overview

Introduction

Hystalin Plus Expectorant is a combination medicine used in the treatment of cough with mucus. It thins and loosens the mucus in the nose, windpipe and lungs, making it easier to cough out. It also provides relief from runny nose, sneezing, itching, and watery eyes.

Hystalin Plus Expectorant may be taken with food. Take it in the dose and duration advised by the doctor. In case you miss a dose of this medicine, take it as soon as you remember. But, never take a double dose to make up for the missed one. If you have suffered or are currently suffering from any liver or kidney problems, inform your doctor before you start taking this medicine. Also, inform your doctor if you have or had any thyroid or heart disease.

This medication may cause side effects like stomach upset, nausea, headache, vomiting, tremor, palpitations, increased heart rate, and rash. Consult your doctor if your symptoms worsen or are accompanied by high fever or persistent headache. It may cause diarrhea, so it is better to take plenty of fluids while taking this medicine as it may help to prevent dehydration. It may also cause dizziness as a side effect, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus. Avoid alcohol while taking this medicine as it may worsen your side effects. Your doctor may advise you to monitor your blood glucose regularly if you are diabetic.

How Hystalin Plus Expectorant works

Hystalin Plus Expectorant is a combination of three medicines: Ambroxol, Guaifenesin and Terbutaline, which relieves cough with mucus. Ambroxol is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which decreases the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and helps in its removal from the airways. Terbutaline is a bronchodilator. It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widens the airways. Together, they make breathing easier.
