  1. Ambroxol Hydrochloride

What is Ambroxol?

Ambroxol is a clinically proven systemically active mucolytic agent. When administered orally onset of action occurs after about 30 minutes. The breakdown of acid mucopolysaccharide fibers makes the sputum thinner and less viscous and therefore more easily removed by coughing. Although sputum volume eventually decreases, its viscosity remains low for as long as treatment is maintained.

Ambroxol Indications

All forms of tracheobronchitis, emphysema with bronchitis pneumoconiosis, chronic inflammatory pulmonary conditions, bronchiectasis, bronchitis with bronchospasm asthma. During acute exacerbations of bronchitis it should be given with the appropriate antibiotic.

Ambroxol Contraindications

There are no absolute contraindications but in patients with gastric ulceration relative caution should be observed.

Ambroxol Side effects

Occasional gastrointestinal side effects may occur but these are normally mild.


It is advisable to avoid use during the first trimester of pregnancy.

Additionally, it is also used as an analgesic to treat problems like headaches, sprains and other such minor pains. The mechanism of action of is based on activation of the TRPM8 receptors in the skin. These receptors are cold sensitive and their stimulation is the cause of the cooling effect experienced on use of Menthol.

Apart from this by promoting the action of the kappa opioid receptors helps to provide pain relief and hence is used as an analgesic sometimes. Possible side effects from the use of menthol are allergic reactions, swelling of face, throat disorder, nausea, and exhaustion and stomach pain. These side effects may or may not manifest depending on the medical condition of the person using.

Taking with alcohol does not cause any major issues normally apart from excessive drowsiness. Usage of the medicine during pregnancy should be done only after consultation with a qualified doctor as can cause complications in some cases.
