SALT INFORMATION for PULMOCLEAR

Acebrophylline(100 mg)

Uses

Acebrophylline is used in the treatment of cough.

How it works

Acebrophylline, a xanthine derivative, belongs to a class of medication called bronchodilators. It blocks the intracellular enzyme (phosphodiesterases) followed by increase in level of messenger known as cyclic adenosine monophosphate, which promotes relaxation of bronchial muscles. It inhibits the release of certain inflammatory chemicals (leukotrienes, tumor necrosis factor etc) in the lungs thereby reducing inflammation. It also reduces thickness of the mucus, thus making it easy for the patient to clear the mucus load.
