Solmucol is a drug suitable for all kinds of respiratory diseases involving increased mucus production that is coughed up insufficiently, such as acute and chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma, sinusitis, laryngitis (larynx inflammation), trachitis and influenza. It is also suitable as a complementary treatment of chronic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis.
Solmucol contains N-Acetylcysteine as an active substance dissolving mucus in the airways and facilitates expectoration.
Cough is a common symptom of colds and influenza viruses. There are two types of cough – dry cough, which does not form mucus, and wet or productive cough. If you suffer from productive cough with mucus formation, take effective mucolytics. Mucolytics are medicines that directly affect the mucus structure, decreasing its density, thereby allowing it to expectorate.
Solmucol is a verified, effective and safe mucolytic medicine. Solmucol contains N-Acetylcysteine as an active substance dissolving mucus in the airways. As a result, the mucus is diluted and easier to remove by expectoration or blowing the nose.
Solmucol is not only a cough medicine, it also has broad-spectrum properties:
- liquidizing mucus and facilitating its expectoration
- supporting the self-cleaning abilities of lungs
- anti-inflammatory action
Solmucol is available in several pharmaceutical forms: you can choose lozenges, syrup or granulate.
Granulate with a pleasant orange flavour, dissolves in water, which is a great benefit for colds and influenza when it is necessary to take the necessary liquids together with the medicine. The advantage is also its dosage: in the case of Solmucol 600 mg Granulate, it is enough for an adult patient to take the medicine once a day.
Syrups are popular among pediatric patients. There are two packages available (90ml and 180ml), and two flavours, raspberry and strawberry or plum-tropical, with a practical measuring cup included. Solmucol syrup is also suitable for small children from birth.
Lozenges with a pleasant orange flavour just dissolve in the mouth. Thanks to the practical pack, you can take them wherever and whenever you need to.
Solmucol is free of colourings, lactose and gluten. It is also alcohol and sugar free, so it is suitable for diabetics. Whether you choose the syrup, granulate or lozenges, the pleasant flavours are enjoyed by both the little ones and the big ones.
