What is acebrophylline?

Acebrophylline is an airway mucus regulator with antiinflammatory action. The drug's approach involves several points of attack in obstructive airway disease. The molecule contains ambroxol, which facilitates various steps in the biosynthesis of pulmonary surfactant, theophylline-7 acetic acid whose carrier function raises blood levels of ambroxol, thus rapidly and intensely stimulating surfactant production. The resulting reduction in the viscosity and adhesivity of the mucus greatly improves ciliary clearance. By deviating phosphatidylcholine towards surfactant synthesis, making it no longer available for the synthesis of inflammatory mediators such as the leukotrienes, acebrophylline also exerts an inflammatory effect. This is confirmed in vivo by the reduction in aspecific bronchial hyper-responsiveness in patients with stable bronchial asthma. On a clinical level, acebrophylline is therapeutically effective in patients with acute or chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive or asthma-like bronchitis and recurrence of chronic bronchitis; it reduces the frequency of episodes of bronchial obstruction and reduces the need for beta2-agonists, and improves indexes of ventilatory function.

Will ambroxol Hydrrochloride show up on a drug test?

Probably not. Drug testing as performed by hiring companies, law enforcement, etc. is concerned with drugs that effect job performance and/or are illegal. So opiates, opioids, THC derivatives, etc. are tested for. And drugs like ephedrine, which is a LOT like an amphetamine, can generate false positives for that reason. But no-one wants to spend the extra money to test and see if you're taking heart meds, for instance, because there is no black market in them, and they typically don't effect job performance.Ambroxol is a secretolytic and a mucolytic. It's a very localized painkiller/analgesic that only works on sore throats. It is NOT an opiate or opiate analog. As such, I can't think of a drug class that's tested for, that this rather unusual medication approximates. And as this med doesn't get people high, there's no real black market in it.But is it possible a drug test could detect Something -- perhaps inaccurately? Maybe, but very very doubtful.
