SANDOZ Acetylcysteine Effervescent Tab 600mg 2’s
Sandoz ACETYLCYSTEINE is a derivative of the amino acid cysteine. The efficacy of Acetylcysteine is secretolytic (break up secretions/ phlegm) and secretomotoric (induce gland to secrete mucus) in the area of the respiratory tract (airway passages). The viscosity (thickness) of mucus will then be reduced. Furthermore, Acetylcysteine contributes to an increase in glutathione synthesis, which is important for the detoxification of noxae. This provides the explanation for its antidotal effect in paracetamol intoxication.
