The effect of the drug is due to the action of its active components.

Levodropropisinum is an antitussive agent of mainly peripheral action, which helps to reduce the frequency and intensity of cough, has a bronchodilator effect. Unlike other antitussive drugs, tolerance or dependence does not occur in levodropropizine. Its effect on the central nervous system is much less than in dropropisin. The effectiveness of levodropropisine is due to inhibition of the sensitivity of the receptors of the bronchial tree. The effectiveness of the drug has been proven in clinical studies and is more than 90%. Levodropropisin acts at the level of nerve receptors by inhibiting the conduction of a nerve impulse along C-fibers. Suppresses the release of neuropeptides, such as substance P and others, as well as histamine, due to which a significant bronchodilator effect is achieved.
