Bromhexine HCl

Bromhexine hydrochloride is a medication prescribed for coughs which works by dissolving hard phlegm. This tends to be given to those with respiratory diseases who have difficulty coughing this out otherwise - by breaking it down it becomes smaller and easier to expel and this means they can breathe without their airways being blocked while also providing cough relief. It is preferable to some cough medication as it does not include any sedatives which can otherwise make those using the medication drowsy. At the same time many other cough medicines simply sooth the throat without actually breaking down the phlegm.

Bromhexine works by encouraging the body's natural process for clearing mucus from the respiratory tract. It does this by increasing the production of serous mucus which is a thin type of mucus which dilutes the phlegm making it less hard and sticky. This also helps to 'lubricate' that hard phlegm which is already there - aiding the cilia (tiny hairs which line the respiratory tract) in sliding the phlegm out from the lungs. As well as being used on its own it is also included in a range of cough syrups.

Levo Sulbutamol Sulphate

Levo Sulbutamol Sulphate is the R-enantiomer of the short-acting ?2-adrenergic receptor agonist salbutamol.

As a bronchodilator, it is used to treat asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In general, levosulbutamol has similar pharmacokinetic and Pharma co dynamic properties to salbutamol; however, its manufacturer, Sepracor, has implied (although not directly claimed) that the presence of only the R-enantiomer produces fewer side effects.

Salbutamol Sulfate

Salbutamol or albuterol (USAN) is a short-acting ?2-adrenergic receptor agonist used for the relief of bronchospasm in conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It is marketed as Ventolin among other brand names.

Salbutamol was the first selective ?2-receptor agonist to be marketed - in 1968. It was first sold by Allen & Hanburys under the brand name Ventolin. The drug was an instant success, and has been used for the treatment of asthma ever since.

Salbutamol Sulfate is usually given by the inhaled route for direct effect on bronchial smooth muscle. This is usually achieved through a metered dose inhaler (MDI), nebulizer or other proprietary delivery devices (e.g. Rotahaler or Autohaler). In these forms of delivery, the maximal effect of salbutamol can take place within five to twenty minutes of dosing, though some relief is immediately seen. It can also be given orally as an inhalant or intravenously.

Mefenamic Acid

Mefenamic Acid is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used to treat pain, including menstrual pain. It is typically prescribed for oral administration.

Mefenamic acid decreases inflammation (swelling) and uterine contractions by a still unknown mechanism. However it is thought to be related to the inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis. There is also evidence that supports the use of mefenamic acid for perimenstrual migraine headache prophylaxis, with treatment starting 2 days prior to the onset of flow or 1 day prior to the expected onset of the headache and continuing for the duration of menstruation.

Since hepatic metabolism plays a significant role in mefenamic acid elimination, patients with known liver deficiency may be prescribed lower doses. Kidney deficiency may also cause accumulation of the drug and its metabolites in the excretory system.

Moxifloxacin HCl Monohydrate EP

Moxifloxacin HCl Monohydrate EP is a light yellow to yellow crystalline powder, slightly hygroscopic in nature.
