Albuterol prescription

Common Questions and Answers about Albuterol prescription


Avatar m tn I've been having fuzziness, is it okay for me to discontinue use of my albuterol nebulizer and budesonide?
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with an exercise induced asthma and prescribed a 90 mcg albuterol inhaler. I didn't use it much as I was fine most of the time. But just recently I have been having to use my inhaler every few hours or so because if I don't I get really short breathed. I don't know what's going on and it's worrying me.
Avatar f tn Albuterol is not a steroid, and will not affect your weight. There are some inhaled medications specifically for exercise induced asthma. You may want to see your pulmonologist (if you haven't already) to be sure that you are being treated absolutely optimally. Good for you for working out!
Avatar n tn 12 days later my condition had deteriorated, so he put me on Prednisone, Cefdinir, and liquid albuterol to be used in a nebulizer. The prescription was for a breathing treatment every 4 hrs, but he told me I should do one as often as every two hours if and when it was practical.
Avatar n tn She's 24, and the last two times she's gotten an albuterol inhaler were emergency room visits in the last two years that she only recently finished paying back and were definintly emergencies. Although I still have health insurance, she's unable financially to see a doctor and her inhaler has been pretty empty for weeks. It brings me great pain to hear her struggle to breathe sometimes, especially at night and I was wondering the best way to go about getting her a prescription for an inhaler.
682098 tn?1236911845 I have been extremely busy so that bring about the coughing. I wanted to see if my doctor would call in a prescription for the cough syrup but I wanted to see if maybe someone could give me advise to what you think.
Avatar m tn I have a prescription for Albuterol, but recently I've been using an OTC Primatene inhaler that seems to work just as well. Are there health advantages to using one over the other?
Avatar m tn I only have one med that I do not get from CVS and that's the albuterol for my home nebulizer - I get that at Walmart becuase it falls under their $4/one month or $10/three month supply plan, which is about 1/4 of the price that it would be at CVS. However, I've made sure that Walmart has on file all my meds and have them double check them every time I get that nebulizer med script filled.
Avatar m tn It is a mild dose of about 20 mg per day. However, I like using non-prescription Albuterol to cut weight quickly (it is very effective). I have used it for this purpose several times in the past without incident. I am not athsmatic. I am aware of the Albuterol/Propranolol interaction (i.e. beta-agonist w/ beta-blocker), so I have not mixed them. My question: how long after taking propranolol should I wait before taking Albuterol (when is it safe), and vice versa?
Avatar m tn Hi, Nebulizer with albuterol and/or pulmicort is used if needed. Then there are some liquid albuterol meds, etc. that can be used .. Orapred if needed. All meds are from a doctor with a prescription. Hope this helps. She should definitely see a doctor if asthma is suspected or diagnosed.
Avatar f tn each actuation delivers from the mouthpiece a microcrystalline suspencion of albuterol sulfate equivalent to 90mcg albutetol in propellant(HFA-134a), ethanol, and oleic acid." Her new one says "a microcrystalline suspension of albuterol sulfate in propellant HFA-134a (1,1,1,2-tetraflouroethane). Each actuation delivers 108mcg of albuterol sulfate equivalent to 90mcg albuterol base from the mouthpiece.
Avatar n tn Hello, it is me again well to be exact the name of the prescription is Albuterol sulfate 2mg tablets. And the reason I was asking about it is because on the information page that they give with the prescription it says that it is for asthma and any other symtoms your doctor seems necessary for. And on the warnings it says if pregnant ask your doctor of the benefits of using this drug while pregnant. But I guess my doctor knows what she is doing right?????????????
Avatar m tn Observe it closely to see if there is any yellowish or greenish color (which would indicate infection). There are medications available (both prescription and non-prescription) to thin the mucus and make it easier to cough up. They are called "expectorants". Talk to your doctor or pharmacist for recommendations. If you have an electric aerosolizer for albuterol sulfate, replacing the medications with saline and taking several "saline treatments" will help.
Avatar f tn As an asthmatic and somebody with SVT and atrial tachycardias, I use Advair daily and have an albuterol inhaler if needed. While the albuterol can cause some tachycardia, Albuterol doesn't stay in the system for all that long and I value my breathing more than my SVT most days. I do have Diltiazem that I can take as needed for tachycardia and also take Flecainide twice daily. Do you normally have more trouble this time of year with your asthma because of allergies?
Avatar n tn There are long acting broncho dilaters like serevent (and a few others as found in Advair, Symbicort and Dulera) and short acting ones like albuterol. There are about three different forms of albuterol - pributerol (Maxair), albuterol (ProAir and Proventil), and levalbuterol (Xopenex). Other broncho diliaters include caffeine, theophyline, anticholinergics like atrovent and spireva. Corticosteroids check the ingredients of Advair, Symbicort and Dulera.
Avatar f tn They could write you a prescription for albuterol treatments at home if they feel it is necessary. It is possible that this is the flu, and the flu this year is pretty nasty. Make sure your daughter is drinking plenty of fluids. If she is older than 1-2 years old you could also try a teaspoon of honey- this can help with the coughing. Good luck- I hope you are both better soon.
Avatar n tn I recommend 1000 mg of vitamin B5, a large dropperful of mullein extract, and a half teaspoon of MSM daily All of these things you can buy over the counter. But you should also have albuterol and that is by prescription only. I use it in a nebulizer, but you can use it in an inhaler. If you also have asthma take Benadryl or Zyrtec (over the counter). This regimen works for me and I have moderate COPD. I stopped using Advair (an inhaled steroid) because it was killing me.
Avatar m tn I recently have air way infection and was prescribed azithromycin and ProAir Albuterol Sulfate. My question is is this combination safe together and with my PVC"S ?
2048234 tn?1330817700 I am also on claritin and albuterol. Is this pain normal? Am I having a reaction to the medication? Is this dose safe to just stop in 7 days and not taper?
Avatar m tn Check it out with a pulmonary specialist. Get a prescription for albuterol, which is a short term respitory med that opens airways.
Avatar n tn is it okay to use albuterol sulfate inhalation solution .083 % even if its out of code? I have real bad asthma and I got a serve cold and cant afford to go to doctor.
1344892 tn?1276545335 The first medication you mention is a Corticosteroid and is not known to effect the cardiovascular system. However, Salbutamol, also known as Albuterol which is a Class of drugs known as Anticholinergics is known to cause tachycardia and can also cause an increase in blood pressure. Some are able to tolerate this medication with no unwanted side effects...while others suffer from common side effects. I was using Combivent a combination of Albuterol/Atrovent which exacerbated my Afib.
Avatar f tn In the United States an albuterol nebulizer requires a prescription. Pharmacists will refuse to provide one even if they see you dying on the floor. These should be made non-prescription. Wall-mart has the best prices, but you much purchase in-store.
144586 tn?1284669764 For those with chronic respiratory disorders it is important to stockpile emergency medications.This is easier said than done, because many physicians will not prescribe "stockpile" doses. And many pharmacies will only"renew" after a certain period of days have gone by. If you suffer from these disorders you know the medications you need.
Avatar f tn As a neb solution it lasts 6 hours and as an MDI it last 4 hours. Check your prescription for dosing on this medication. Advair is a combination medication used to treat COPD and asthma. It has two active components a cortocosteroid (antiinflamatory) AND an LABA (long acting beta2 agonist that lasts 12 hours). Beta2 agonists are the broncho-dilaters. There are two kinds - long and short acting.
Avatar n tn Do you really want to be giving your son Pulmicort under any circumstances? It is a corticosteroid with many side effects. For instance it compromises the immune system and weakens bones. For a growing boy that does not sound great. There are natural anti-inflammatories that actually work better than steroids and which do not harm the patient. The albuterol is OK.
Avatar f tn I found out im 7wks pregnant and I want to know if its ok for me to take proventil, amoxicilin & albuterol I suffer from asthma. Ive already had a miscarrage on 2010 and im starting to get abdominal and lower back pain but im not spotting is that normal?
Avatar n tn Normal treatment is two inhalations of Albuterol (90mcg's each spray) at least 30 minutes before running or sex (if possible). The Albuterol will give you around 6 hours of relief before it wears off. Depending on what country you live in, you will probably require a prescription. Most that suffer from this have very mild asthma and/or allergies that don't require medical intervention in most cases.
Avatar n tn The prescription actually says albuterol? The two are similar, but terbutaline is the drug that is usually used to stop preterm contractions on an outpatient basis. I'm not sure why anyone would use albuterol tablets. They certainly are not used to stop preterm contractions. You should be on limited activity if you aren't already. No working, no intercourse, no housework..just tv time on the couch, up and down to the bathroom only.
Avatar m tn can i just take an inhaler before i do sports and not use them on holidays? and if so, do i need a prescription to buy it? Thanks for your much appreciated help.
