MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Ambroxo is used in secretolytic treatment of acute and chronic inflammation in the bronchial mucous membrane, bronchial asthma and disorders in the mucus elimination. Ambroxo is a mucolytic in influenza infection and other diseases in the respiratory tract.
The mucosa of nose or bronchus reacts with invasion of pathogenic agents as virus or bacteria by exudation of high liquid amounts in order to rinse the microbes away. Often, this mucus cannot be eliminated fast enough and assembles. With the additional lack of ventilation, ideal conditions for bacterial growth and increase are the result.
Sometimes, it's difficult to remove these mucous, it accumulates in the site, it forms secretions which don't have ventilation and are ideal circumstances for bacterial growth and increase.
Ambroxo is a secretolytic, it liquefies the mucus and simplifies its transport. So, by this action Ambroxo prevents inflammation and relieves cough attack.
