Bricanyl Asthma Beta Receptor Stimulator
An organ, cell or molecule that accepts an outside signal and causes an internal change. Eyes receive light, touch receptors send messages to the brain when stimulated by pressure and estrogen receptors bind Estradiol causing responses of normal breast, ovary and uterus cells to rising and falling levels of the female steroid hormones. Most of the time "receptor" refers to one ...Read more

Im using following tablets for my asthma treatment

If ok'd by the FDA: Any medication can have bad side effects in a few people.

Also, "long term" may mean 6 weeks, 6 months, 6 years, etc... Doctors on healthtap are U.S. Doctors, so generally do not have information on foreign medications. ...Read more
I'm taking a new asthma medication described as specific to beta 2 receptors. What does this mean?
Beta-2 agonist: You are likely taking albuterol, or some form of it, which specifically targets the beta-2 receptors in the lungs for it's intended effects. These specific receptor medications are intended to treat disease of the lungs, without cross-reacting to beta-1 receptors in the heart. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Selective may be OK: Selective beta 1 blockers are are tolerated by most asthmatics at lower doses. Non-selective beta blockers are contra-indicated in asthmatics because they block the beta2 receptors in the airways, leasing to broncho-constriction. Even non-selective applied to the eyes (for glaucoma) can cause asthma attacks or poorer control. High doses of beta1 may rarely cause similar worsening of asthma. ...Read more
Is a cardioselective beta blocker safe for someone with mild asthma? It is to treat pots when standing.
Maybe: It's highly individualized and depends on the severity of your asthma and dose of the drug being used. Some people will tolerate it and some won't. Even those who do may have a worsening of their asthma following a respiratory infection months or years hence. You can always try it, stop it if necessary, and use a bronchodilator till back to baseline. ...Read more
Not advised.: It is not a good choice for asthma. If there is no other option, you may ask your doctor to try a low-dose cardio-selective blocker. One study showed that although the lung function did decrease slightly when people with asthma are treated with a selective beta blocker, their bronchodilator response actually improved. I have not seen this study confirmed however. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How long does a beta blocker stay in your system ? I took atenolol for a month , 25 mgs twice a day . I discontinued it 3weeks ago, asthma flared up !
Other BP meds: There are many alternative families of BP meds that can be used in asthmatic patients. Even if one has a medical condition where a beta blocker is the best choice, there are some of that family that affect asthma less than others. Discuss options with fp/allergist/ pulmonologist/internist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
