Pharmacological properties:

– Sedobroxol is a systemically active mucoly1ic agent.
– Following oral administration, onset of action occurs after about 30 minutes.
– the breakdown of acid mucopolysaccharide fibers makes the sputum thinner and less viscous and therefore more easily removed by coughing.
– Although sputum volume eventually decreases, its viscosity remains low for as long as treatment is maintained.

During acute exacerabations of bronchitis, Sedobroxol should be given with the appropriate antibiotic.
