Dostin Sachet is an expectorant medication. It is used for the treatment of acute and chronic respiratory diseases, including sinus congestion, asthma-related symptoms and bronchitis. Each sachet of Dostin contains the active ingredient Erdosteine, which is a mucolytic agent.
How effective is Dostin?
Dostin Sachet is very effective for the thinning of mucous and accelerating its clearance from the respiratory tract. Dostin also prevents the activity of free radicals present in cigarette smoke. Its use is indicated for the treatment of chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), laryngopharyngitis, sinus congestion, and rhinosinusitis. Dostin works by breaking the disulphide bonds between molecules of mucous, which decreases its viscosity. Dostin also enhances mucociliary transport.
