Dr. Sanford Archer answered:

Is Mucomyst ok with atrovent?

Maybe

Atrovent
Mucomyst is an inhalational agent that serves to help break up mucous. Atrovent is an oral or nasal spray that serves to dry up secretions. It should not be combined for pulmonary use, but is helpful to reduce nasal secretions that may worsen pulmonary problems.

Can proventil and atrovent used together?

Absolutely

Bronchospasm
Proventil (Albuterol) and Atrovent (Ipratropium bromide) are very commonly recommend to be used together for treatment of airway bronchospasm commonly seen in asthma or COPD. I would caution that there are better, long-acting medications that provide better benefit IF you are not well-controlled on Proventil and Atrovent alone. Otherwise they do indeed work very well together.

Have you used atrovent for post nasal drip?

Best for rhinitis

Atrovent
Atrovent nasal spray works best for a drippy nose. A nose which produces too much mucous from the front leading to the need for lots of tissues. Post nasal drip might be improved but atrovent is not nearly as successful for this symptom.

Can you take atrovent and proventil at the same time?

Yes

Albuterol
Both medications are used as bronchodilators to help with acute asthma symptoms. They can be taken separately, but are often combined during an acute exacerbation to relax airway smooth muscle. Each medication works on a different receptor to achieve the desired result.
