Active Ingredient ACETYLCISTEINE :
Each sachet contains
When inhaled by mouth, acetylcysteine is used to help thin and loosen mucus in the airways due to certain lung diseases (such as emphysema, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, pneumonia).
This effect helps you to clear the mucus from your lungs so that you can breathe easier.
When taken by mouth, acetylcysteine is used to prevent liver damage from acetaminophen overdose.
Respiratory disorders are accompanied by very viscous mucus and phlegm such as bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma, bronchiectasis and tracheitis, vesicular fibrosis.
It is also used in routine cleaning operations before the surgical opening of the trachea.
Otitis media with increased secretions.
the viscosity of mucus.
To treat the harmful effects of smoking, fumes, and exhaust.
ACETYLCISTEINE is an expectorant that acts directly by breaking the disulfide bonds of mucus proteins, thus reducing its viscosity and thus stimulating its expulsion by the cilia of the trachea and bronchi.
ACETYLCISTEINE stimulates the defense and immune mechanisms through the activity of alveolar osteoclasts, which protect the lungs from infections, either by direct action as an antioxidant or indirectly through the synthesis of glutathione.
Oral administration of acetylcysteine is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, achieving the highest plasma concentrations within 2-3 hours.
Its concentrations are the same in the lungs and plasma.
About 20% of the dose is excreted in the urine daily. – “Effervescent Acetylcysteine” is a new pharmaceutical form that guarantees rapid dissolution, faster absorption, superior bioavailability, a precisely titrated dose, and optimum stability.
Dosage and administration ACETYLCISTEINE :
It is taken orally under medical supervision in the following dosage:
Adults: 1 sachet twice daily during meals. Administration: The contents of the sachet are added to half a glass of water to obtain an effervescent solution of palatable taste, then drink immediately.

Contraindications to use:
Hypersensitivity to the active substance or any of the components of the preparation.
Acetylcysteine is not to be used in children under the age of two years.
After regular administration of acetylcysteine, the volume of bronchial fluid secretions increases, and in the event that coughing is not sufficient to expel secretions, the airway must be kept open, even if necessary by mechanical secretion.
When there is a mechanical obstruction in the airway due to the presence of a foreign body or a local accumulation of secretions, the airway should be purified by breathing from the trachea with or without a bronchoscope. Asthma patients should be closely followed up during treatment with acetylcysteine.
Most patients with bronchospasm improve rapidly when using inhaled bronchodilators. If bronchospasm worsens, treatment with acetylcysteine should be discontinued immediately
