Pharmacological effects of expectorant:
A combined preparation having broncholytic, expectorant and mucolytic effects.
The active substance Bromhexin is a mucolytic agent. Increases the serous component of bronchial secretion and activates the cilia of atrial fibrillation, thus providing the expectorant effect of the drug Ascoril Expectorant: reduction of sputum viscosity, increase of its volume and improvement of withdrawal.
Active ingredient Gwaifenezin - mucolytic and expectorant, reduces the viscosity of sputum, facilitates its removal and promotes the transition of unproductive cough to productive.
The active substance Salbutamol is a broncholytic agent and is a selective agonist of β2-adrenoreceptors. In therapeutic doses, the drug Ascoril Expectorant acts on the β2-adrenoreceptors of smooth bronchial musculature, preventing and/or eliminating bronchial spasm, thus reducing respiratory resistance and increasing lung capacity. The bronchial expansion of salbutamol (reversible airway obstruction) lasts from 4 to 5 hours.
