(epilepsy).

you are on a controlled sodium diet

1. What Mucodyne Syrup is and what it is used for
Mucodyne 250 mg/5 ml Syrup/ Carbocisteine 250 mg/5 ml Syrup (called Mucodyne Syrup in this leaflet)
contains a medicine called carbocisteine. This belongs to a group of medicines called ‘mucolytics’. It works by
making mucus (phlegm) less sticky. This makes the mucus easier to cough up.
Mucodyne Syrup is used for problems with the breathing passages (respiratory tract). These problems
happen when too much mucus is made or the mucus is too sticky.
