Mucomix Tablet 10’s belongs to a class of drugs called ‘mucolytic agents‘ (cough/sputum thinner) primarily used to treat respiratory diseases associated with excessive mucus. Additionally, Mucomix Tablet 10’s in injection form is used to treat paracetamol overdose. Acute respiratory diseases are initially associated with dry, irritating cough, hoarseness in laryngitis (swelling of the voice box) or burning sensation in chest due to bronchitis (swelling of the lining of bronchial tubes). Then, wet mucus forms and continuous coughing out of sputum occurs. In chronic respiratory diseases, both dry irritating cough and wet cough with mucus occur.
Mucomix Tablet 10’s contains ‘Acetylcysteine’ that works by thinning and loosening phlegm (mucus) in lungs, windpipe and nasal passage. Mucomix Tablet 10’s breakdown the acid mucopolysaccharide fibres that make the mucus (sputum) thinner and less dense/viscous removing sputum efficiently by coughing. However, the viscosity of sputum remains low for as long as treatment is maintained.
