Nebulizer For Cough
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

My chest hurts and feels congested. I take my proair every hour, as well as my nebulizer. I can cough all the mucus out, which i believe is the cause.
STOP!!!: You need to go to the emergency room or call your doctor.Very dangerous to take your proair every hour with your nebulizer (hopefully it is not a bronchodilator) .If it is, you are overdosing yourself and making yourself sicker.If you are that tight you need steroids to help decrease the swelling in your lungs.Good that you are coughing up the mucus but using proair every hour is a no no! ...Read more
6 yo has bronchitis. Just gave him albuterol in nebulizer and his cough is really bad after treatment . It sounds productive though. Is this normal?
It is normal to: cough more right after a nebulization treatment. The medication loosens up the mucous in the airway passages. However, if he is wheezing more or having difficulty breathing, or he seems to need a treatment in less than 2 hours, you should call his pediatrician. He may need to be re-checked and/or his medications adjusted. ...Read more
I gave my 8 year old his 3 year old brother's albuterol nebulizer for bad cough and it helped, will he have bad side effect? He is sleeping so good
He'll be fine.: Rule #1: never give another child a patient's medications. Rule #2: if you do, let your pediatrician know. Rule #3: don't give the lungs medicine without listening to them first. Ok, now to answer your question, due to his bigger body weight/size, he can handle the little guy's dosing. You could have hit the nail on the head, and surmised correctly that he may have cough-variant asthma. Follow-up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
