Bromhexine HCl is a medication used to treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It works by thinning and loosening mucus in the lungs, making it easier to cough up.
Bromhexine HCl belongs to a class of drugs called mucolytics, which are used to break down and clear mucus from the airways. It is available in various forms, including tablets, syrups, and inhalers.
Like all medications, Bromhexine HCl can cause side effects. Common side effects may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Rare but serious side effects may include allergic reactions, such as rash, hives, and difficulty breathing. If you experience any of these serious side effects, seek immediate medical attention.
It is important to follow the dosage and administration instructions provided by your doctor or pharmacist when taking Bromhexine HCl. Do not take more than the recommended dose or use it for longer than prescribed without consulting your healthcare provider.
