This combination of Terbutaline Sulphate, Ambroxol Hydrochloride and Guaiphenesin is an expectorant. Terbutaline is a selective beta2 -adrenergic agonist which predominantly stimulates beta2-receptors, thus producing relaxation of bronchial smooth muscle. Ambroxol possesses mucokinetic (improvement in mucus transport) and secretolytic (liquifies secretions) properties. It promotes the removal of tenacious secretions in the respiratory tract and reduces mucus stasis (arresting the secretion of mucus). Besides that, Ambroxol also exhibits anti-oxidant activity. Guaiphenesin, by increasing respiratory tract fluid, reduces the viscosity of tenacious secretions and acts as an expectorant. Another possible mechanism by which it acts is by increasing the water bonding in the sputum, thereby decreasing its viscosity and leading to an increase in mucokinesis. Guaiphenesin is effective in both productive and nonproductive coughs. Menthol has a cooling effect on the throat. It has been suggested that the benefits of menthol may be due to an effect on calcium channels of sensory nerves.
Side Effects :
The most common adverse reactions to terbutaline are tremor, headache, tachycardia, palpitations, muscle spasms and hypokalaemia. Side effects resulting from guaifenesin and ambroxol administration are very rare.
