[A controlled study on the action of a new formulation of ambroxol in asthmatiform bronchitis in children].

[Article in Italian]


A comparison between the action of Ambroxol and Acetylcysteine was carried out in 28 children aged 2 to 13 (mean 7 years 3 months) affected with spastic bronchitis. 14 patients were treated daily for 10 days by the oral route with 30 mg of Ambroxol (2 sachets) and 14 with 200-300 mg of Acetylcysteine (2-3 sachets). Quantity and quality of sputum, difficulty in expectorating, cough, dyspnea, bronchial bruits, were assessed before the treatment, 5 days into it and at the end. Both drugs were effective and well tolerated, but Ambroxol proved to be more rapid in achieving a satisfactory improvement than Acetylcysteine.
