Below are some of our market-leading brands:
Amuco 600 is a mucolytic that breaks up the mucus/phlegm in sinuses and airways, making it thin and watery so that it is easier for the body to remove. This medication can be used in the treatment of severe airway conditions e.g., colds, flu, bronchitis, or even certain allergies, that cause the increased production of mucus/phlegm. The active ingredient in Amuco 600 is also an antioxidant that can help detoxify harmful chemicals in the body.
Piascledine is the number one prescribed and selling osteoarthritis treatment in South Africa. Osteoarthritis is a chronic disorder that results in the destruction of joint cartilage, which causes pain, swelling and joint dysfunction. Piascledine is the only clinically proven treatment that reduces this pain and improves movement. It also slows disease progression and reduces the need for harmful anti-inflammatories.
Prospan is the number one prescribed and selling cough brand in South Africa. Its clinically proven 4-in-one action effectively treats and relieves coughs by opening up the airways, thinning the mucus, and reducing coughing spasms.
