A mucolytic is a medicine that helps to dissolve the stickiness of the mucus and make it easier to expel.
When you are in a cold and flu process, the most common symptoms are coughing, sneezing and excess mucus.
Mucolytics contribute to the fluidification of mucus, that is, to make it more fluid (less thick), reducing the retention of secretions and thereby decreasing both the intensity and frequency of coughing.
Therefore, a mucolytic medicine will allow you to feel better, less congested and with less mucus.
What is the best mucolytic syrup?
The best mucolytic syrup is the one whose active ingredient is acetylcysteine or ambroxol and bromhexine.
For example, Ambroxol and Bisolvon mucolitic are two mucolytic syrups that help reduce the viscosity of mucus, thus facilitating its expulsion.
