Norvent consists of Ambroxol Hydrochloride, Guaifenesin, Menthol, Terbutaline Sulfate.
Guaifenesin - An expectorant that also has some muscle relaxing action. It is used in many cough preparations.
Indication: Used to assist the expectoration of phlegm from the airways in acute respiratory tract infections.
Norvent (Guaifenesin) is an expectorant which increases the output of phlegm (sputum) and bronchial secretions by reducing adhesiveness and surface tension. The increased flow of less viscous secretions promotes ciliary action and changes a dry, unproductive cough to one that is more productive and less frequent. By reducing the viscosity and adhesiveness of secretions, Norvent (Guaifenesin) increases the efficacy of the mucociliary mechanism in removing accumulated secretions from the upper and lower airway.
Menthol - Norvent (Menthol) is a covalent organic compound made synthetically or obtained from peppermint or other mint oils. It is a waxy, crystalline substance, clear or white in color, which is solid at room temperature and melts slightly above. The main form of Norvent (Menthol) occurring in nature is (-)-menthol, which is assigned the (1R,2S,5R) configuration. Norvent (Menthol) has local anesthetic and counterirritant qualities, and it is widely used to relieve minor throat irritation.
Indication: Used to treat occasional minor irritation, pain, sore mouth, and sore throat as well as cough associated with a cold or inhaled irritants.
Norvent (Menthol) is a covalent organic compound made synthetically or obtained from peppermint or other mint oils. Menthol's ability to chemically trigger cold-sensitive receptors in the skin is responsible for the well known cooling sensation that it provokes when inhalated, eaten, or applied to the skin. It should be noted that Norvent (Menthol) does not cause an actual drop in temperature.
Terbutaline Sulfate - A selective beta-2 adrenergic agonist used as a bronchodilator and tocolytic.
Indication: For the prevention and reversal of bronchospasm in patients 12 years of age and older with reversible, obstructive airway disease, as well as symptomatic management of reversible bronchospasm associated with bronchitis and emphysema. Also used acute IV and sub-Q therapy in selected women to inhibit uterine contractions in preterm labor (tocolysis) and prolong gestation when beneficial.
Norvent (Terbutaline Sulfate) is a relatively selective beta2-adrenergic bronchodilator that has little or no effect on alpha-adrenergic receptors. The drug has exerts a preferential effect on beta2-adrenergic receptors but stimulates beta-adrenergic receptors less selectively than relatively selective beta2-agonists. Norvent (Terbutaline Sulfate) appears to have a greater stimulating effect on beta-receptors of the bronchial, vascular, and uterine smooth muscles (beta2 receptors) than on the beta-receptors of the heart (beta1 receptors). This drug relaxes smooth muscle and inhibits uterine contractions, but may also cause some cardiostimulatory effects and CNS stimulation.
