About Activane N
ACTIVANE-N is primarily used to prevent and treat symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) such as shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing (whistling sound while breathing)..
ACEBROPHYLLINE+ACETYLCYSTEINE belongs to the class of drugs called ‘mucolytic agents’ (cough/sputum thinner). COPD is a group of lung diseases with emphysema (shortness of breath) and chronic bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of bronchial tubes).
ACTIVANE-N is a combination of two drugs, namely: Acebrophylline and Acetylcysteine. Acebrophylline belongs to the class of bron chodilators with additional mucolytic properties and works by relaxing muscles and widening the airways of the lungs. Acetylcysteine is a mucolytic agent (cough/sputum thinner) that works by thinning and loosening phlegm (mucus) in lungs, windpipe and nose.
ACEBROPHYLLINE+ACETYLCYSTEINE breakdown the acid mucopolysaccharide fibres that make the mucus (sputum) thinner and less dense/viscous removing sputum efficiently by coughing. However, the viscosity of sputum remains low for as long as treatment is maintained. Together, they help to cough out easily and makes breathing easier by opening airways.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): It is a group of lung diseases with emphysema (shortness of breath) and Chronic Bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of bronchial tubes).
The major cause of COPD is smoking tobacco. Also, long-term exposure to fumes and chemicals may lead to COPD. The symptoms include chronic cough, shortness of breath or wheezing (whistle sound while breathing).
