Amoxycillin + Bromhexine is a combination of two medicines: Amoxycillin + Bromhexine1 and Amoxycillin + Bromhexine2 which treat respiratory tract infections associated with excessive mucus (phlegm). Amoxycillin + Bromhexine1 is an antibiotic which kills bacteria by preventing them from forming their own protective covering. Amoxycillin + Bromhexine2 is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Addition of Amoxycillin + Bromhexine2 enhances the antibacterial effect of Amoxycillin + Bromhexine1.
