Medicine overview

Indications of Arolax 1 mg/5 ml

Arolax 1 mg/5 ml is indicated for the treatment and prevention of bronchospasm in adults, adolescents & children of 6 years of age and older with reversible obstructive airway diseases.

Theropeutic Class

Short-acting selective & β2-adrenoceptor stimulants


Arolax 1 mg/5 ml is a single isomer beta-2 agonist that differs from racemic salbutamol by elimination of (S)-salbutamol. Arolax 1 mg/5 ml is an effective bronchodilator whose primary mechanism of action is not inhibited by (S)-salbutamol.Thus, when compared with racemic salbutamol, clinically comparable bronchodilation can be achieved. Arolax 1 mg/5 ml produces bronchodilatation through stimulation of beta-2-adrenergic receptors in bronchial smooth muscles, thereby causing relaxation of bronchial muscle fibres.

Dosage & Administration of Arolax 1 mg/5 ml

Children (6 -11 years): 5 ml (1 mg), three times daily.Adults and adolescents above 12 years: 5-10 ml (1-2 mg), three times daily.

Interaction of Arolax 1 mg/5 ml

Other short-acting sympathomimetic bronchodilators or epinephrine should be used with caution with Arolax 1 mg/5 ml. If additional adrenergic drugs are to be administered by any route, they should be used with caution to avoid deleterious cardiovascular effects.


Arolax 1 mg/5 ml is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to Arolax 1 mg/5 ml or any of its components.

Side Effects of Arolax 1 mg/5 ml

Hypocalcaemia, palpitation, fine tremors of the skeletal muscle and muscle cramps may occur. The other likely side effects are nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain and diarrhoea.

Pregnancy & Lactation

The drug should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk of the fetus. It is not known whether Arolax 1 mg/5 ml is excreted in human milk. Caution should be exercised when oral Arolax 1 mg/5 ml is administered to a nursing woman.
