MUCOLYTICS

(R: Respiratory System)

Acetylcysteine ​​is a mucolytic mucoformer. It exerts its action on the gel phase of the mucus, presumably by breaking the bridges, disulfides of the glycoproteins and thus promotes the expectoration

Not applicable.

· History of hypersensitivity to one of the constituents

· Children under 6 years of age (see Warnings and Precautions for Use).

Special warnings

The productive coughs, which represent a fundamental element of broncho-pulmonary defense, must be respected.

The association of mucomodifiers, bronchodilators with antitussives and / or substances, drying (atropinic) secretions is irrational

Mucolytics can induce bronchial overcrowding in infants. Indeed, its capacity for draining bronchial mucus is limited, due to the physiological peculiarities of its respiratory tree. Therefore, they should not be used in infants (see sections Contraindications and adverse effects)

Treatment should be re-evaluated in the event of persistence or aggravation of symptoms or pathology.

This medicinal product contains an azo dye (orange yellow S (E110)) and may cause allergic reactions.

Not applicable.

Pregnancy

Studies in the animal have not demonstrated any teratogenic effect. In the absence of teratogenic effect in animals, a malformative effect in the human species is not expected.

Indeed, to date, the substances responsible for malformations in the human species have been shown to be teratogenic in animals in well-conducted studies of two species

In clinical studies, no malformative or fetotoxic effects have occurred to date. However, monitoring of pregnancies exposed to acetylcysteine ​​is insufficient to exclude any risk.

Therefore, the use of acetylcysteine ​​should only be considered during pregnancy if necessary.


There is no data concerning the passage of acetylcysteine ​​in breast milk. However, because of its low toxicity, the potential risks to the child appear negligible when treated with this medication.
As a result, breastfeeding is possible.

· Risk of bronchial over-crowding, especially in the infant and in some patients who are incapable of expectoration, effective (see sections Contraindications and Warnings and Precautions). >

Allergic skin reactions such as pruritus, erythematous rash, urticaria and angioedema

· Possibility of phenomena, intestinal digestive (gastralgia, nausea, diarrhea).

It is then advisable to reduce the dose.
