Ipratropium Bromide And Albuterol Sulfate 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?
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
Absolutely: 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. ...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?
No: I would not do it, just because you don't know how you're going to react to it. Although, there are commercial preparations of longer acting albuterol (salmeterol, formoterol), mixed in with a steroid (budesonide), there is no such formulation that would include short acting albuterol. ...Read more
Corticosteroid asthma medicine symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) or advair diskus; which is better?
Both are good: It's a matter of personal response to the medications. Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) is an aerosol and the coordination required to inhale it is a little harder than the diskus. Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) contains formoterol as the long-acting bronchodilator, and that works faster than the salmeterol in advair. Both come in different strengths as well. Try both and consider what each costs on your plan and the side effects you have. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is flixotide evohaler 125 micrograms the same as or similar to ventolin salbutamol evohaler 100 micrograms inhaler?
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
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)
Which inhaler is a rescue inhaler, xopenex (levalbuterol) hfa or dulera? Already used xopenex (levalbuterol) hfa and did not get full relief
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
Up in the Air: There are not sufficient data one way or the other to say specifically that advair won't harm your baby. As a general rule, inhaled medications are somewhat safer than pills or liquids because the levels in the blood are not as high for inhaled medications. Your doctor can help determine if your lung disease severity outweighs the potential risk to your baby. ...Read more
