Pharmacological action

Fluimucil is a mucolytic drug with antioxidant properties.

Thins sputum, increases its volume and facilitates its separation.

The action of acetylcysteine is associated with the ability of its sulfhydryl groups to break the intramolecular and intermolecular disulfide bonds of acid mucopolysaccharides of sputum, which leads to the depolarization of mucoproteins and a decrease in the viscosity of sputum.

Preserves activity in the presence of purulent sputum.

It has an antioxidant effect due to the presence of the SH group capable of neutralizing electrophilic oxidative toxins.

It also has an anti-inflammatory effect (due to the suppression of the formation of free radicals and active oxygen-containing substances responsible for the development of inflammation in the lung tissue).
