What Ecomucyl Sandoz is and when is it used?

Ecomucyl Sandoz contains the active substance acetylcysteine. This active ingredient liquefies and loosens the tough, stuck mucus in the airways and promotes expectoration.

The secretion present on the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract plays an important role in the defense against inhaled pollutants such as bacteria, dust and chemical impurities. These irritants are held in the secretion, where they are rendered harmless and excreted with the sputum.

With infections caused by bacteria and viruses (colds, flu, bronchitis) and with chronic irritations caused by harmful substances, the production of mucus increases. The thickening of the mucus can cause the airways to become blocked, causing breathing difficulties and sputum problems.

The expectorant effect of Ecomucyl Sandoz liquefies the tough mucus and makes it easier to cough up. This reduces the risk of infection. When the airways are free, the cough subsides and breathing becomes easier.

Ecomucyl Sandoz is suitable for the treatment of all respiratory diseases that lead to excessive mucus production, such as colds or flu illnesses with cough and catarrh as well as for acute and chronic bronchitis, sinus infections, throat and pharynx infections, bronchial asthma and (as an additional treatment) for cystic fibrosis (cystic fibrosis) .

What precautions should be taken?

The effect of Ecomucyl Sandoz is enhanced by drinking copious amounts of water. Smoking contributes to the excessive formation of bronchial mucus. By giving up smoking you can support the effectiveness of Ecomucyl Sandoz.

When should Ecomucyl Sandoz not be used?

Ecomucyl Sandoz must not be taken if you are known to be hypersensitive to the active ingredient acetylcysteine ​​or any other ingredient or if you have stomach or intestinal ulcers.

Ecomucyl Sandoz should also not be taken together with cough suppressants (antitussives), as these agents suppress the cough and the natural self-cleaning of the airways, which impairs the coughing up of the liquefied mucus and leads to a congestion of the bronchial mucus with the risk of bronchial spasms and Respiratory infections can occur.

The effervescent tablets of 600 mg must not be used in children under 12 years of age (in children with the metabolic disease cystic fibrosis under 6 years of age) because of their high content of active ingredient.

Your doctor will know what to do in such cases.

Ecomucyl Sandoz should not be used in young children under 2 years of age.

In what circumstances should caution be used when taking Ecomucyl Sandoz?

The use of Ecomucyl Sandoz, especially at the beginning of treatment, can lead to a liquefaction of the bronchial secretions and promote expectoration. If the patient is not able to cough up this sufficiently, the doctor can take supportive measures. If you have noticed rashes or breathing difficulties while taking a medicine with the same active substance as Ecomucyl Sandoz before, you should tell your doctor or pharmacist before you start taking it of the preparation.

Using certain other medicines at the same time can affect each other's effects. The effectiveness of certain agents against circulatory disorders of the coronary arteries (eg nitroglycerin for angina pectoris) can be increased.

Simultaneous administration of acetylcysteine ​​and carbamazepine can lead to a decrease in the concentration of carbamazepine.

The simultaneous administration of cough suppressants (antitussives) can impair the effectiveness of Ecomucyl Sandoz (see above: “When should Ecomucyl Sandoz not be taken?”).

Furthermore, you should not take antibiotics at the same time as Ecomucyl Sandoz, but at least 2 hours apart.

If you suffer from high blood pressure, Ecomucyl Sandoz effervescent tablets are not suitable as they contain 139 mg of sodium per effervescent tablet. The salt released after ingestion can increase your blood pressure even further and reduce the effectiveness of medicines for high blood pressure.

Tell your doctor, pharmacist or druggist if you have

  • suffer from other diseases,
  • have allergies or
  • take other medicines (including ones you have bought yourself!) or apply them externally!

Can Ecomucyl Sandoz be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?

Based on previous experience, there is no known risk for the child if used as intended. Systematic scientific research was never carried out. As a precautionary measure, you should avoid medication if possible during pregnancy or ask your doctor, pharmacist or druggist for advice.

No information is available on the excretion of acetylcysteine ​​in breast milk. You should therefore only use Ecomucyl Sandoz during breast-feeding if your doctor considers it necessary.

How do you use Ecomucyl Sandoz?

Unless otherwise prescribed, the usual dosage for acute illnesses is :

Children from 2 to 12 years: ½ effervescent tablet Ecomucyl Sandoz 200 mg 3 times a day

Adolescents over 12 years of age and adults: 600 mg daily, divided into one (1 effervescent tablet of 600 mg) or several doses (e.g. 3 times 1 effervescent tablet of 200 mg).

If the excessive mucus formation and the associated cough do not subside after 2 weeks of treatment, you should consult a doctor so that he can clarify the cause more precisely and rule out a possible malignant disease of the respiratory tract.

Long-term treatment for chronic diseases (only on medical prescription):

400–600 mg daily, divided into one or more doses, duration of treatment limited to a maximum of 3–6 months.

Cystic fibrosis: as above, but for children from 6 years of age, 1 effervescent tablet of 200 mg 3 times a day or 1 effervescent tablet of 600 mg once a day.

Dissolve the effervescent tablet in a glass of cold or hot water and drink it immediately. Do not dissolve other medicines in the water at the same time as Ecomucyl Sandoz, as this can affect or stop the effectiveness of both Ecomucyl Sandoz and the other medicines.

When opening, a slight smell of sulfur is perceptible. This is typical for the active ingredient acetylcysteine ​​and does not affect its effect.

Adhere to the dosage given in the package insert or prescribed by your doctor. If you think that the medicine is too weak or too strong, talk to your doctor, pharmacist or druggist.
