Albuterol Sulfate Inhalation Solution Dosage
I'm using 2 rotacaps for asthma (salbutamol sulphate& ipratropium bromide, fluticasino propionate& formaterol fumarate). Is the long term use safe?
Yes and no: The last drug you mentioned formaterol is a long acting beta agonist (laba). In the us, labas alone are used in treating copd. When used in asthma and to reduce their potential serious side effects, they must be combined with a steroid like fluticasone. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ventolin is the trade name for the chemical / drug albuterol. This drug is a medicine to be inhaled to open the airways and it acts quickly, so it is called a "short-acting bronchodilator". The medicine comes in both a hand-held inhaler and as a liquid to be used with a nebulizer machine . It also comes in a liquid form to take by mouth, but this should not be used ...Read more
Can taking ferrous gluconate (elemental iron) and fluticasone propionate (flovent hfa inhaler) simultaneously be harmful?
NO: While ipratropium is generally used for copd, and usually in combination with albuterol, albuterol is generally used in asthma. So no harm, but may not achieve the goal of therapy when used in itself in either condition. Further since it is anticholinergic, excess usage will cause its own side effects. ...Read more

I use albuterol sulfate ProAir rescue inhalers for my asthma. Can I use salamol cfc free inhalers in replacement of this? (it's more affordable)
My albuterol inhalation aerosol (warwick pharmaceuticals) helps me, but i've been switched to albuterol sulfate (pro air) which has less benefit, why?
Sensations or dose: The standard dose for a puff of albuterol is 90 micrograms, so any of the preparations should be the same in effect. Recently, the gas that pushes the medicine out of the inhaler, called the propellant, was changed. Some people feel that the new propellant (called hfa) is not as strong as what was used before. If the dose and propellant are the same, it is likely to be your sensation of effect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Which is better for COPD patients, albuterol inhaler or Combivent (albuterol and ipratropium) inhaler?
Unknown: Longer term studies show that both drugs are quick acting and relieve acute dyspnea/shortness of breath. It appears unlikely that either drug affects the natural history of asthma/copd. Longer acting drugs called maintenance inhalers are associated with significant decreases in exacerbation (flares) of these diseases and may affect lung function longer term. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No.: Xopenx is a single medicine known as a short-acting-beta agonist (saba). There is no steroid. Its base medicine is albuterol. Most drugs have two forms-the active chemical and its mirror image (kind or like a right hand and left hand). Many drugs, only one of them works as the medicine. Xopenex (levalbuterol) is the "working form" of albuterol. Used to try and decrease side effects using active form of med. ...Read more

Which inhaler is a rescue inhaler, xopenex (levalbuterol) hfa or dulera? Already used xopenex (levalbuterol) hfa and did not get full relief
Yes: Although it seems paradoxical, it is sometimes prudent to use a beta-blocker at the same time as a beta-agonist. I assume that the albuterol is being used as an inhaler. If you are wheezing, and you respond to albuterol, you may benefit from inhaled albuterol (typically a short course, as other therapies are likely to be beneficial in chronic use.) there can be untoward side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
