CAS code


Characteristics of the substance Ambroxol

White crystalline powder odorless, slightly bitter taste.


Pharmacological action - expectorant, mucolytic.

Stimulates the formation of a tracheobronchial secretion of reduced viscosity due to a change in the structure of mucopolysaccharides of sputum and increases the secretion of glycoproteins (mukokinetic effect). Stimulates motor activity of cilia of ciliated epithelium and improves mucociliary transport; increases synthesis, secretion of surfactant and blocks its disintegration.

Sufficiently absorbed in any way of administration. The liver undergoes biotransformation, forms dibromantranilic acid and glucuronic conjugates. In the form of water-soluble metabolites 90% excreted in urine; in the unchanged form only 5% is deduced. T1 / 2 increases with severe renal failure, but does not change if the liver function is impaired.

Application of Ambroxol

Diseases of the respiratory tract with the formation of viscous sputum: acute and chronic bronchitis, pneumonia, COPD, bronchial asthma with difficulty in sputum discharge, bronchiectatic disease. Respiratory distress syndrome in premature infants and newborns.


Hypersensitivity, peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum, convulsive syndrome, violation of bronchial motility, large amounts of secreted secret (the risk of stagnation of the secretion in the bronchi), pregnancy (I trimester), breast-feeding.

Restrictions on the use

Renal and / or hepatic insufficiency, pregnancy (II and III trimester).

Application in pregnancy and lactation

Contraindicated in the first trimester of pregnancy, in the II and III trimester is possible, if the expected effect of therapy exceeds the potential risk to the fetus. For the duration of treatment, breastfeeding should be discontinued.

Side effects of Ambroxol

On the part of the digestive tract: rarely - diarrhea / constipation; with prolonged use in high doses - heartburn, gastralgia, nausea, vomiting.

Allergic reactions: skin rash, hives, angioedema; in some cases - allergic contact dermatitis, anaphylactic shock.

Other: rarely - weakness, headache, dryness of the oral mucosa and respiratory tract, exanthema, rhinorrhea, dysuria; with a rapid on / in the introduction - a feeling of numbness, intense headache, adynamia, lowering blood pressure, shortness of breath, hyperthermia, chills.


Joint use with antitussive drugs can lead to difficulty in getting away from sputum while reducing cough. Increases the penetration into the bronchial secret of amoxicillin, cefuroxime, erythromycin and doxycycline. Solution for injection is pharmaceutically incompatible (in one syringe) with solutions of medicines, the pH of which exceeds 6.3


Symptoms: increased salivation, nausea, vomiting, lowering blood pressure.

Treatment: gastric lavage in the first 1-2 hours after ingestion, intake of fat-containing products; it is necessary to monitor the parameters of hemodynamics and to carry out symptomatic therapy if necessary.

Routes of administration

Inside, IM, SC, IV (slowly struino or drip), inhalation.

Precautions for the substance Ambroxol

Do not combine with other antitussive drugs that make it difficult to withdraw phlegm.
