Bromhexine Hydrochloride

Bromhexine HCl belongs to a class of drugs called mucolytics. Bromhexine affects mucus in its early phases of formation in the glands, within the mucus-secreting cells. Bromhexine causes the structure of acid mucopolysaccharide fibres in mucoid sputum to be disrupted, resulting in a mucus that is less viscous and easier to expectorate.

Bromhexine HCL is indicated for-

  • Tracheobronchitis
  • COPD
  • Bronchitis with emphysema
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Bronchitis with bronchospasm
  • Chronic inflammatory pulmonary conditions and
  • Pneumoconiosis

Adult: As tab/solution: 8-16 mg thrice a day
Child: As tab/solution: 2-5 years 4 mg twice a day; 6-11 years 8 mg thrice a day; ≥12 years Same as adult dose.
