Of course, in pregnancy or nursing, like all drugs, use this only if and when it is absolutely necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

23 weeks pregnant with twins. Is it safe to use ipratropium bromide inhalation solution 0.02% (0.5mg/2.5ml)? Been having problems with my ashtma.
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
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
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
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
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
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

Have an allergy most of the time in Florida. Am otherwise healthy. Is HTN a very common side effect of ipratropium bromide nasal solution or not?
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
Can Ipratropium Bromide nasal spray help with post-nasal drip? No runny nose or front nasal discharge, just the drip. Not linked to allergy (per ENT)
Depends: It depends on the cause for the post-nasal drips. If the nasal drips is not linked to nasal stuffiness, sneezing, or runny nose, one needs to consider other causes (sinus infection for example). If your nose and eyes itch, it is likely from allergy which can confirmed by the history and skin testing. One can't tell whether one has an allergic problem by looking at the nose and throat alone. ...Read more
What's the difference between ventolin and atrovent (ipratropium)? Which is safer during pregnancy at 16 weeks? Thanks!
Different classes: ventolin is albuterol and is a beta 2 agonist bronchodilator while atrovent (ipratropium) is iprotropium and is an anti cholinergic bronchodilator. Both are generally safe during pregnancy but if you are using them more than a few doses a week you may need to be using a controller medicine to reduce your dependence on the bronchodilators. ...Read more
