- Active substance:
Fluimucil contains the active ingredient 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.
Due to the expectorant effect of Fluimucil, the viscous mucus liquefies and can be coughed up better. This reduces the risk of infection. When the airways are free, the cough subsides and breathing becomes easier.
Fluimucil 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 acute and chronic bronchitis, sinus infections, throat and pharynx infections, bronchial asthma and (as an additional treatment) cystic fibrosis.
The effect of Fluimucil is promoted by copious drinking. Smoking contributes to the excessive formation of bronchial mucus. You can support the effect of Fluimucil by giving up smoking.
Fluimucil must not be taken if you are known to be hypersensitive to the active ingredient acetylcysteine or any other ingredient and if you have stomach or intestinal ulcers.
Fluimucil 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 cramps and infections the airways can come.
The effervescent tablets and the sachets of granules 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.
Fluimucil must not be used in young children under 2 years of age.
The use of Fluimucil, 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 observed rashes or breathing difficulties while taking a medicine with the same active substance as Fluimucil before, you should inform your doctor or pharmacist before you start taking the Start 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 Fluimucil (see above: “When should Fluimucil not be taken?”). Furthermore, you should not take antibiotics at the same time as Fluimucil, but at least 2 hours apart.
Tell your doctor, pharmacist or druggist if you have
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 Fluimucil during breastfeeding if your doctor treating you thinks it is necessary.
Unless otherwise prescribed, the usual dosage for acute illnesses is:
Children from 2 to 12 years: 1 sachet of 100 mg granules 3 times a day or 200 mg twice a day (e.g. 1 effervescent tablet or 1 sachet of 200 mg).
Adolescents over 12 years of age and adults: 600 mg daily, divided into one (1 effervescent tablet or 1 sachet of 600 mg granules) or several doses (e.g. 3 times 1 effervescent tablet or 1 sachet of 200 mg granules).
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 sachet of granules or 1 effervescent tablet of 200 mg 3 times a day or 1 sachet of granules or 1 effervescent tablet of 600 mg once a day.
Dissolve the effervescent tablet or granules 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 Fluimucil, as this can affect or stop the effectiveness of both Fluimucil and the other medicines.
When the bags or foils are torn open, a slight smell of sulfur is perceptible. This is typical for the active ingredient acetylcysteine and does not affect its effect.
