Bronolac ( Syrup)
Syrup. Each 5 ml contains 15 mg ambroxol (as hydrochloride).
PHARMACODYNAMICS. Ambroxol (benzylamide group) refers to secretolytic and secretomotor drugs. It has expressed expectoration effect. Mechanism of drug action is due to the stimulation of serous adenocytes of bronchus mucous tunic, the increase of mucin content and the change of ratio of serous and mucous components of phlegm. Besides, hydrolyzing ferments are activated and the lysosome release of Clare' s cells is strengthened that leads to the decrease of phlegm viscosity. Ambroxol increases surfactant’s content in lungs due to increase in the synthesis of the last by alveolar pneumocytes. It and also decreases its disintegration. The drug increases a mucociliary phlegm transport. The cough is neutralized slowly.
Ambroxol easily crosses placental barrier improving surfactant’s synthesis during fetus intrauterine life, and also able to prevent the syndrome of insufficient respiration in infants. The drug doesn’t cause an excessive secretion formation, decreases spastic bronchial hyperreactivity, one of the main developing factors of bronchial asthma during allergy.
PHARMACOKINETICS. After per oral application it is completely and fast absorbed and easily penetrates in pulmonary tissue. Maximum blood plasma concentration is reached in 2 hours after drug administration and is kept for 9 - 10 hours. Ambroxol is eliminated through kidneys.
