Each 5 ml syrup contains Bromhexine Hydrochloride BP 4 mg.
Bromhexine Hydrochloride is an oral mucolytic agent. It disrupts the structure of acid mucopolysaccharide fibres in mucoid sputum and produces less viscous mucus, which makes easier the expectoration. It is rapidly & completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. It is widely distributed into the body tissues.
Mucoxin is indicated in the treatment of respiratory tract disorders associated with productive cough. These include tracheobronchitis, bronchitis with emphysema, bronchiectasis, bronchitis with bronchospasm, chronic inflammatory pulmonary conditions and pneumoconiosis.

Adults: The recommended daily dose is 2 to 4 teaspoonful (10 ml to 20 ml) 3 times. Initially 4 teaspoonful (20 ml) 3 times daily and then as required.
Children: Suggested dosage for children from 1 year of age is 0.6-0.8 mg/kg/day (use only when needed), under 2 years is 1/4 teaspoonful (1.25 ml) 3 times daily, for 2-5 years 1/2 teaspoonful (2.5 ml) 3 times daily and for children aged 5-10 years 1 teaspoonful (5 ml) 3 times daily.
Contraindicated to those who are hypersensitive to Bromhexine Hydrochloride.
Since Mucolytics may disrupt the gastric mucosa so Bromhexine should be used with care in patients with a history of peptic ulceration. Care is also advisable in asthmatic patients.
Different side-effects may occur occasionally with Bromhexine such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, rash and other hypersensitivity.
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
TGA pregnancy category A. Bromhexine has been taken by a large number of pregnant women and women of childbearing age without an increase in the frequency of malformations or other direct or indirect harmful effects on the fetus having been observed. It is unknown whether bromhexine/ metabolites are excreted in human milk. Available pharmacodynamic/toxicological data in animals have shown excretion of bromhexine/metabolites in breast milk. A risk to the breastfed infant cannot be excluded.
There are no known significant interactions with other drugs.
Protect from light & moisture. Store in a cool & dry place (below 30°C) temperature. Keep out of the reach of children.
