Rocamux sputum thinner for respiratory diseases

Producer

Roussel Vietnam.

Ingredient

Each sachet/tablet: Carbocistein 250mg.

Pharmacodynamic

Carbocistein - a derivative of cistein - is a substance that thins sputum by severing the disulfide bridge of glycoproteins, reducing the viscosity of mucus, changing the consistency of sputum, and making it easier to spit.

Pharmacokinetics

Carbocistein is well and rapidly absorbed when administered orally. Peak plasma concentrations are reached after 1-2 hours. The plasma half-life is 1.5 to 2 hours. Carbocistein penetrates well into lung tissue and respiratory mucus, and has a local effect. Most of the drug is excreted in the urine as an unchanged drug.
