Remember though, Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) has a long acting form of albuterol (the active ingredient in ventolin). So normally, one would not need to take them both at the same time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I take albuterol, also ipratropium bromide, and budosemide, i mix the albuterol and ipratropium together.Is it ok to mix the budosemide w/albuterol?

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.

Can Allegra be taken with Paxil, nortriptyline, and Aleve and hydrochlorothiazide, and dulera (formoterol and mometasone)?
It is usually: Not a good idea to take antihistamines with psychotropics such as nortriptyline or SSRIs. They potentiate sedative effects. I would see a healthcare provider who is familiar with your health to see if you can safely stop one of the two psychotropics while you are on Allegra, (fexofenadine) if you absolutely need to take it for allergic rhinitis or sinus problems. The others should not interfere too much. ...Read more

If you are getting worst please seek immediate help in ED or urgent care ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
