Bromhexine hydrochloride is a medication commonly used to treat respiratory conditions, particularly those involving excessive mucus production. It is available in various forms, including oral tablets, syrups, and injections. Bromhexine works by increasing the production of serous mucus in the respiratory tract, which helps to make the mucus thinner and less sticky, making it easier to cough up and clear from the airways.
Bromhexine is often prescribed to relieve symptoms associated with respiratory conditions such as:
1. Acute and chronic bronchitis
2. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
4. Cystic fibrosis
5. Other respiratory conditions characterized by excessive mucus production.
The injection form of Bromhexine hydrochloride may be used in more severe cases or when oral administration is not possible.
