Mucolytics dissolve mucus in the lungs or intestines, making the mucus thinner and less sticky. However, these drugs are not used very much because they can irritate the lungs. Usually DNAse enzyme replacement therapy is used . The medication dornase (Pulmozyme) contains an enzyme that thins the mucus and makes it easier to cough up.
