Uses

What is Solmux® Broncho used for?

Solmux® Broncho is a combination of salbutamol sulfate (a bronchodilator) and carbocisteine (a mucolytic). Bronchodilators help to relax and expand the airways to make breathing easier. Mucolytics work by thinning and loosening up thick mucus or phlegm making it easier to expel and clear out of the airways.

How should I take Solmux® Broncho?

Take Solmux® Broncho by mouth as directed by your doctor. Do not take it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

Consult your doctor for any information on the label that you do not clearly understand.

How do I store Solmux® Broncho?

Solmux® Broncho is best stored at room temperature away from direct light and moisture. To prevent drug damage, you should not store Solmux® Broncho in the bathroom or the freezer. There may be different brands of Solmux® Broncho that may have different storage needs. It is important to always check the product package for instructions on storage, or ask your pharmacist. For safety, you should keep all medicines away from children and pets.

You should not flush Solmux® Broncho down the toilet or pour them into a drain unless instructed to do so. It is important to properly discard this product when it is expired or no longer needed. Consult your pharmacist for more details about how to safely discard your product.

Precautions & warnings

What should I know before using Solmux® Broncho?

While using this drug, tell your doctor if:

  • The cough persists for more than 3 weeks.
  • Your symptom gets worse.
  • Your cough is accompanied by recurring fever; an upset stomach or heartburn after taking Solmux® Broncho.
  • New or unusual symptoms occur.

Is it safe during pregnancy or breastfeeding?

Pregnancy

There have been reports of congenital abnormalities in children of mothers who were treated with salbutamol. However, these mothers were also receiving other medications so the evidence salbutamol causing these defects is inconsistent. Salbutamol may interfere with uterine contraction and should not be given during labor. Carbocisteine use has not been studied in pregnant patients and its safety has not been established.

Only take this product if the potential benefit outweighs the potential risks, as determined by your doctor.

Breastfeeding

Salbutamol is known to be secreted in breastmilk. Do not take this drug if you are lactating and plan to breastfeed unless advised by your doctor.
