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
