AB Phylline (Acebrophylline)


AB Phylline (Acebrophylline) is indicated for asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory conditions. Its mechanism of action is reducing inflammation in the airways and helping to boost ciliary clearance. When administered, it affects a substance called phosphatidylcholine and disrupts the process in which leukotrienes (mediators of inflammation) are synthesized. This is how it exhibits its anti-inflammatory effects on the airways. Another way in which it acts against obstructive airway diseases is by reducing the thickness (viscosity) of mucus, which makes it easier for the patient to clear mucus from the body.

Dosage and Administration

Deciding the dosage regimen for patients who are taking AB Phylline (Acebrophylline) will be the responsibility of the physician in charge of treatment. In some cases, adult patients will be instructed by their physician to take 100mg (equal to one capsule) 2 times each day. However, it is important to note that individual circumstances will be taken into account, and some patients may be told to take a different dose to that of others. In addition to this, the duration of treatment will be determined by the physician providing medical treatment, and in all cases it will be necessary to fully comply with the instructions given by the physician.
