Availnex, or carbocysteine, is a prescription dietary supplement used to manage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. Availnex includes antioxidants, which are naturally-occurring substances found in a number of foods such as fruits and vegetables.

Availnex is an amino acid that comes in a chewable tablet with a citrus flavor. Carbocysteine (or carbocisteine) helps to break down mucus so that the body may expel it more easily.
