Gastrointestinal side effects may occur occasionally with Bromhexine and a transient rise in serum aminotransferase values has been reported. Other reported adverse effects include headache, dizziness, sweating and skin rash.
Mucolytics may disrupt the gastric mucosa so bromhexine should be used with care in patients with a history of peptic ulceration. Care is also advisable in asthmatic patients.
Use In Pregnancy Lactation
Category B: Bromhexine has been taken by a large number of pregnant women and women of child bearing age without any proven increase in the frequency of malformations or other direct or indirect harmful effects on the fetus having been observed. It is not known whether Bromhexine is excreted in breast milk or whether it has a harmful effect on the breastfeeding infant. Therefore it is not recommended for breastfeeding mothers unless the potential benefits to the patient are weighed against the possible risk to the infant.

Bromhexine is contraindicated for use in patients with known hypersensitivity to bromhexine hydrochloride (or any of the other ingredients in the product).
