Clinical pharmacology.

Pharmacokinetics:
The absorption of all oral forms of Ambroxol is fast and relatively complete, with linear dependence in therapeutic guidelines. The peak levels are reached 0.5-3 hours after the dose. In plasma, approximately 90% of the preparation binds with proteins. Distribution via oral route is fast and complete with high concentrations reaching the lung tissues. The effective half-life is 7-12 hours; cumulation is not found. While taking peroral approximately 30% of the preparation egests with stool. Generally, ambroxol metabolized in liver by conjugation. General renal excretion is approximately 90%.

Pharmacodynamics:
Pharmacotherapeutic group:
Mucolytics, ATC code:
R05CB06
Ambroxol is a product derived from bromhexine biotransformation. Pharmacologic investigations showed that ambroxol has a higher bronchosecretolytic effect than the compound from which it originates.
It develops a dual activity, on the one side it improved the expectorate rheology with a hydration mechanism, which makes secretions more fluid, helps expectoration, reduces cough and dyspnea, while on the other side it stimulates the production of surfactant from the second grade pneumocytes, thus reducing the surface tension of the alveolar mucosa. It increases secretion of the respiratory tracts, enhances the excretion of pulmonary surfactant and stimulates ciliary activity. It leads to improvement of mucus discharge and its excretion (mucociliary clearance). Activation of fluid secretion and increasing of mucociliary clearance facilitate mucus discharge and reduce cough.
