Carbocisteine available in sachets

Added 2 years, 10 months ago.

To date, Carbocisteine-a well-known mucolytic, has only been available in two formats: capsules and bottled liquid. We are delighted to announce that from the 1st September it will be available in a 10ml sachet containing 750mg Carbocisteine.

When taking the sachets format the patient now only requires 3 sachets a day compared to 6 large capsules or 9 teaspoons of liquid. For some elderly patients and for those that have difficulty in swallowing capsules, the sachets offer a much more user friendly presentation. Carbocisteine in sachets are more likely to help aid compliance, as well as ensuring the patient is taking the correct dose.

Carbocisteine sachets are the most cost effective option for the NHS as they are 10% less expensive than capsules and 27% less expensive than the bottle.
