Strepronin is a mucolytic (expectorant) drug.


The drug promotes drainage of mucus from the lungs by thinning the mucus and lubricating the irritated respiratory tract

mechanism of action

An expectorant increases bronchial secretions and mucolytics help loosen thick bronchial secretions. Expectorants reduce the thickness or viscosity of bronchial secretions thus increasing mucus flow that can be removed more easily through coughing, Mucolytics break down the chemical structure of mucus molecules. The mucus becomes thinner and can be removed more easily through coughing.
