Ipratropium Bromide And Albuterol Sulfate Dosage
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
Short acting: Both drugs are short acting bronchodilators; albuterol is called a sympathomimetic drug because it affects beta receptors that line airways and cause bronchodilation. Ipratroprium is called an anticholinergic and affects muscarinic receptors that line the airways causing decreased muscle tone/constriction. Both are used in copd, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. ...Read more
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
I use Albuterol & Ipratropium Bromide in my nebulizer and I used it this morning 1 1/2 later I started coughing awful. My inhaler stopped it. Reason?
Cough is good: Though there is good data to suggest an inhaler used with spacer and optimal technique can be as effective as nebulized medication (in toddlers to seniors), I don't recall ever seeing it work better than a neb. Consider whether the neb "loosened up" mucus that accumulated through the night, making cough more effective; this commonly (and paradoxically) increases cough for an hour or so. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

Can Ipratropium Bromide cause a bronchitis like cough? Whenever I use my nebulizer I cough so hard and it will last for minutes.
TrySteamFromTeapot: Yes. Kind of like the first time you smoke, or if you take a hot toke. There's the medicine in there but also the propellants.They can irritate. So you have to decide if the benefits of using that medication outweigh the short-term discomfort. Also try to breathe in faster and deeper, then hold it for 10 seconds. That sometimes works.Gets past the upper cough reflex structures quickly. ...Read more
Can azelastine Hcl nasal solution be used at the same time as ipratropium bromide nasal solution?
It depends: What are you treating? They each act in different ways, and sometimes both are used simultaneously. You may want to separate the usage of each one during the day, to ensure you don't end up with too much solution in your nose that simply drips away. Using them at separate times can ensure proper absorption into your nose. ...Read more
