Pulneo (phenylpyridium) - syrup
Pulneo is an anti-inflammatory and bronchospasmodic drug.
What does Pulneo contain and how does it work?
Fenspyride, which is the active substance of the preparation, blocks the istamine type 1 receptors, i.e. H1 receptors, and has a strong spasmolytic effect of papaverin type. The ability to reduce the production of inflammatory mediators such as free radicals, TNF-alpha, cytokines, prostaglandins and leukotrienes is responsible for the anti-inflammatory effects of the drug. It is also associated with the alleviation of typical inflammatory symptoms, such as swelling and irritation, inhibition of excessive mucus secretion in the bronchial tree, anti-cough action and bronchial systolic prevention.
When to use Pulneo?
The main application of Pulneo is symptomatic treatment during lung and bronchial inflammatory diseases, including coughing and expectoration. Because of the symptomatic treatment, it is important not to delay the use of antibiotics if there is a need to include them in the treatment.
