Mechanism
Levofloxacin is a third generation fluoroquinolone.Fluoroquinolones are bactericidal drugs, actively killing bacteria by inhibiting bacterial DNA gyrase or the topoisomerase IV enzyme, thereby inhibiting DNA replication and transcription.Bromhexine is a mucolytic; it liquefies the bronchial secretion and promotes its ejection from the respiratory tract (by decreasing its viscosity). Thus Bromhexine alleviates the expectoration of the sputum and facilitates respiration.
