Double strength formula for stubborn chesty coughs
Proven to break down mucus and help clear stubborn chest congestion
When should I use Bisolvon Chesty Forte Liquid?
Bisolvon Chesty Forte Liquid delivers proven effectiveness in treating productive, chesty coughs. That tight, wheezy feeling in your chest is the result of too much thick mucus in your airways. The body's natural response is to clear out the mucus by coughing. Bisolvon Chesty Forte Liquid helps your body get rid of mucus by making it thinner and easier to cough up.
Symptoms of chesty cough
Sticky phlegm that comes up during persistent coughing
A wheezing, rattling sound especially when breathing in and coughing
The chest feels tight, heavy and/or congested
The cough is often worse in the morning
New labelling for usage of cough and cold medicines in children
Following a review of active ingredients in cough and cold medicines by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), all major cough and many cold products are to transition their labelling to indicate that the products are not to be used for children under 6 years of age. For children between 6 and 12 years of age, the advice of a pharmacist, doctor or nurse practitioner should initially be sought before giving the products.
This change will occur for labelling of Bisolvon products sold in pharmacies over a 12 month period from June 2012. Please note there has been no change in the products themselves, no change to where you can buy them and no change to the adult dosing.
As with all other medicines, it is important to take note of the instructions on the label and only use the products as directed. You should read labels carefully, strictly follow all the directions and, if symptoms persist, consult a pharmacist, doctor or nurse practitioner.
How does Bisolvon Chesty Forte Liquid work?
The active ingredient in Bisolvon Chesty Forte Liquid is bromhexine that makes the mucus thinner and more liquid. Thanks to bromhexine, Bisolvon Chesty Forte Liquid helps your body clear your airways naturally.
Mode of Action
The active ingredient, bromhexine, supports the body's own natural mechanisms for clearing mucus from your airways.
Bisolvon Chesty Forte is a mucolytic: that is, it increases the production of serous mucus in the respiratory tract and makes the mucus thinner and less sticky.
This contributes to a secretomotoric effect: it helps the cilia - tiny hairs that line the respiratory tract - to transport the mucus out of the lungs.
Thanks to this mucus-clearing effect, Bisolvon makes it easier for the respiratory tract to eliminate phlegm. It eases productive cough and helps you recover from cough fast.
Following the new guidelines for childrens cough cold products, Bisolvon will transition to new packaging over 2012 - 2013. Please refer to the dosage relevant for the pack you have.
Adults and children over 12 years: 5 mL three times a day. This dose can be increased to 10 mL three times a day for the first 7 days.
Use in children 6 - 11 years only on the advice of a doctor, pharmacist or nurse practitioner. Children 6 - 11 years of age: 5 mL three times a day.
Do not use in children under 6 years of age.
Use the measuring cup provided in the carton to measure out the correct dose.
