Mucotuss Forte is an antitussive medication. Inhibiting the excitability of the cough center this medicine suppresses the cough of any origin. Mucotuss Forte (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) has not addiction effects and it has no analgesic and hypnotic action. Mucotuss Forte (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) starts to act after 10-30 minutes after oral administration, the duration of therapeutic action: 5-6 hours for adults and 6-9 hours for children. Mucotuss Forte (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) is an optical isomer of levomethorphan which is similar to morphine. Due to optical isomerism this drug has no opioid effects. Mucotuss Forte (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) used mainly for replacement of codeine as a cough suppressant. In addition to the cough suppressant this medication is used in medicine for diagnostic purposes and may be useful in various cases - from seizures to heroin addiction treatment, some chronic neurodegenerative diseases. These include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) (Charcot's disease), disease of "mad cow and other prion diseases. Mucotuss Forte (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) has also been used for the treatment of mental retardation, Parkinson's disease, in the treatment of lung and other cancers and to prevent tissue rejection in transplantation because of the (poorly known) effects of sigma ligands on tumor cells and immune system.
After oral administration Mucotuss Forte (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) is completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Cmax of Mucotuss Forte (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) in plasma is reached after 2 h. This medication biotransformes in the liver. Up to 45% of this drug is excreted by kidneys and there was considerable individual variation in rates of excretion of individual metabolites.
Dry cough of different etiology.
For adults and children over 12 years Mucotuss Forte prescribed on 15 mg 4 times / day, children aged 6 years - 7.5 mg 4 times / day.
Drowsiness, nausea, dizziness.

With carefully administered Mucotuss Forte (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) with impaired liver function.
MAO inhibitors (including furazolidone, procarbazine, selegiline) when administered simultaneous with Mucotuss Forte (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) may cause adrenergic crisis, collapse, coma, dizziness, agitation, increased blood pressure, hyperpyrexia, intracranial hemorrhage, lethargy, nausea, cramps, tremor. In combination with tricyclic antidepressants (amitriptyline, etc.) Mucotuss Forte (Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide) may appeal serotonin syndrome and possible subsequent death. Amiodarone, fluoxetine, quinidine, inhibiting system cytochrome P450, may increase the drug concentration in the blood. Tobacco smoke can lead to increased secretion of glands in the background of inhibition of cough reflex. Some inhibitors of CYP450 (such as quinidine) increase and extended effects of this medicine.
Symptoms: excitement, dizziness, respiratory depression, impaired consciousness, decreased blood pressure, tachycardia, muscle hypertonicity, ataxia.
Treatment: mechanical ventilation, symptomatic agents.
Indication: Used to assist the expectoration of phlegm from the airways in acute respiratory tract infections.
Mucotuss Forte (Guaifenesin) is an expectorant which increases the output of phlegm (sputum) and bronchial secretions by reducing adhesiveness and surface tension. The increased flow of less viscous secretions promotes ciliary action and changes a dry, unproductive cough to one that is more productive and less frequent. By reducing the viscosity and adhesiveness of secretions, Mucotuss Forte (Guaifenesin) increases the efficacy of the mucociliary mechanism in removing accumulated secretions from the upper and lower airway.
Indication: For the treatment of nasal congestion, control of urinary incontinence, priapism and obesity.
Mucotuss Forte (Phenylpropanolamine Hydrochloride) (PPA), a sympathomimetic agent structurally similar to pseudoephedrine, is used to treat nasal congestion. Mucotuss Forte (Phenylpropanolamine Hydrochloride) is found in appetite suppressant formulations and with guaifenesinin in cough-cold formulations. In 2000, the FDA requested that all drug companies discontinue marketing products containing Mucotuss Forte (Phenylpropanolamine Hydrochloride), due to an increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke in women who used Mucotuss Forte (Phenylpropanolamine Hydrochloride).
