Histiacil Dextrometorfano Ambroxol
Ambroxol is a…: Mucolytic agent, i.e., it makes mucus & sputum thinner & less viscous (sticky) & therefore more easily removed by coughing; so it is beneficial in diseases associated with increased mucus production (acute/chronic bronchitis, copd). It also appears to have anti-inflammatory properties. None of the articles I reviewed noted that this drug is not available in the us. Ask your fp/pharmacist.
My cough is almost 2 weeks until now, I'm taking ambroxol and antibacterial, why the cough is there?
Cough: Prolonged cough may be due to mycoplasma, chlamydia, adult pertussis or other conditions. Needs to be evaluated. Two weeks of antibiotics without a response suggests a need for further evaluation. Good luck.
Ambroxol: The only side effect I could find for ambroxol hydrochloride is just some mild gastrointestinal distress.
See Your Doctor Now: 4 yr old taking antitusive "safe to give ambroxol"? Cough has many causes, at her age infection is most likely. Giving suppressants without knowing the cause can allow an undiagnosed infection to develop complications like pneumonia. Ambroxol reportedly controls mucous production which also occurs in infection. Do NOT give Ambroxol. See your child's doctor now for correct diagnosis and treatment.
My 6mo old was prescribed loratadine/ambroxol. She seems very drowsy, why? And how long will it stay I her system?
Mgt: If your baby is more drowsy/lethargic, not feeding well, please see your ED. This may not be related to the medications, but rather to an illness. The ambroxol should be discontinued until further evaluation is completed. For excessive mucus production, nasal saline drops and gentle suction is the only treatment advised in this age group, unless there is a tracheostomy or some other problem.
Yes: All of those things can loosen your phlegm. They are safe to take together and should work better in combination than alone. Another substance that helps loosen phlegm is potassium iodide.

Hi, my baby is of 14 weeks old, he is having cough n cold, doctor has given him ambroxol hydrochloride is it safe?
My. 8month baby has cough and temperature my doctor is not available but he gave me amoxilin and ambroxol. Is it safe?
Not so much: I would rather you go to an urgent care center than start some antibiotic that would cover up a real medical problem. I consider such a practice sloppy work and dangerous. The mother of the last kid I treated for bacterial meningitis called in asking for antibiotics because her doc was not available.See 1 more doctor answer
Can I give my baby hydroxyzine hydrochloride syrup with ambroxol hydrochloride syrup? Hope they don't react with each other.
MixingMedsDangers: You should always consult with your physician before mixing medications. Ambroxol is not available in the US so I can't comment on how it interacts with Hydroxyzine but as I said above - always talk with your physician or even the pharmacist before using multiple medications especially in children!
My daughter has a Cough and cold w/ so much mucus. Been giving ambroxol and amoxicillin 10mg 3x aday. She's 11yrs old and weighs 46kg.
Dosage...: Did a physician prescribe the medications? I am not sure what you are asking - there is no question in your statements above. I would advise that you check with her pediatrician before starting medications (the amoxicillin dosage that you have reported is not correct). See her doctor.
Confused a med with ambroxol with baby drops for eye and put the med on her eye baby cried alot, will it damage her eye? And it sure burns I tried.
It Can: Direct contact of ambroxol with the eye may cause transient discomfort characterised by tearing or conjunctival redness. Slight abrasive damage may also result, so I would recommend seeing an ophthalmologist. Also, there may be other chemicals in the medication that could irritate or damage the eye. Take the medication with you to the eye doctor.
I'm using following tablets for my asthma treatment 1)ruptadine&montelukast 2)ambroxol, terbutaline&etofylline 3)sertalin r they safe for long term use?
If ok'd by the FDA: Any medication can have bad side effects in a few people. Medications that are approved for long term use by the fda are considered safe, but doctors and patients still keep an eye out for undesired reactions. Also, "long term" may mean 6 weeks, 6 months, 6 years, etc... Doctors on healthtap are U.S. Doctors, so generally do not have information on foreign medications.
