Fluimucil complex 12 comprimidos efervescentes
Symptomatic relief for colds and flu-like processes that occur with or without fever, mild to moderate pain and thick mucus.
What Fluimucil complex is and what it is used for
It is an association of paracetamol, an active ingredient that is effective in reducing pain and fever, and acetylcysteine, an active ingredient that belongs to the so-called mucolytics that work by lowering the viscosity of mucous secretions, fluidifying them and facilitating their elimination.
It is indicated for the symptomatic relief in colds and flu processes that occur with or without fever, mild or moderate pain and thick mucous secretions, in adults and adolescents over 12 years of age.
You should see a doctor if it worsens or does not improve after 5 days or if the fever, if any, persists after 3 days.

If you take more Fluimucil complex than you should
As this medicine contains paracetamol, if you have taken an overdose you should immediately go to a medical center even if you do not notice the symptoms, since these often do not appear until 3 days after ingestion of the overdose, even in cases of severe poisoning.
Overdose symptoms may be: dizziness, vomiting, loss of appetite, yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice), and abdominal pain.
Treatment of overdose is most effective if started within 4 hours of taking the overdose.
Patients on barbiturates or chronic alcoholics may be more susceptible to the toxicity of an overdose of this medicine because it contains paracetamol.
Due to the presence of acetylcysteine, if you have taken more Fluimucil complex than recommended, you may feel an intensification of the adverse effects, especially of the digestive type. They should apply symptomatic treatment.
In case of overdose or accidental ingestion, immediately go to a medical center or call the Toxicological Information Service (telephone: 91 562 04 20), indicating the medicine and the amount ingested.
If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
