Albuterol prescription

Common Questions and Answers about Albuterol prescription


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.
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 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 f tn I would call your Dr as it sounds like you need something like Albuterol but you don't use one because it triggers your SVT. 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.
1344892 tn?1276541735 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 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 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 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.
Avatar m tn Treatment with Beta-agonists with or without Cromoglycates and Inhaled glucocorticoids against prescription will help. I suggest you to consult physician. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn he said it was unusual i did better on the test without the inhaler..he gave me symbicort 160/4.5 and a prescription for a albuterol nebulizer.....i am really frustrated and depressed now..i feel like crying at times..i dont know whats wrong with me..i've had x rays done...i've had an ekg test done...blood tests...all came out literally sick of all this...i want to feel healthy again... i want to feel like the old me and not worry about my breath all the time...
Avatar f tn You need to get a doctor's prescription for an albuterol sulfate emergency oinhaler and keep it with you at all times! Do this as of yesterday! Most asthma deaths take place with those who don't have chronic asthma. A cascade of events can take place and you may end up with a laryngospasm completly blocking your airway! If you have a friendly doctor he will prescribe you emergency prednisone (20 mg tablets), which takes a while to get into the system.
Avatar f tn Today while I am not as tired as I have been since I have been sick, the chest tightness reoccurred briefly in the afternoon. Using my albuterol inhaler helped, then the coughing returned. I still have a lot of mucus and my chest is slightly tight. It is all not as bad as it was before but is the medrol pack supposed to help clear this up? I thought at the very least I would have relief during the 6 days I am on it.
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 n tn What did you use in the nebulizer for him? Pulmacort or albuterol? Pulmacort could take quite a while on its own and albuterol without Pulmacort would be very temporary. Also, if he is experiencing allergies you need to be treating them with antihistamines. Also, he is old enough to learn how to do saline sinus rinses. You can get a NeilMed bottle at any pharmacy. That is very helpful in clearing the gunk out of the nose before it causes other problems.
678431 tn?1227554311 re not a victim of false advertising. You can only get these drug induced inhalers from a prescription given by a doctor. You can ask the doc who prescribed the inhaler about its contents (or look on the package) and also, once you know what they contain you can do a google search to find out more about side effects, etc. Some inhalers contain steroids, others just albuterol but not usually both meds in one canister. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn I was surprised today to find out that I needed a prescription for this! Why is that? Has it always been the case?
Avatar f tn I spent the next 3 months going through Albuterol inhalers and albuterol in my nebulizer. And also then Budesonide in my nebulizer. Nothing helped. I was having near-death experiences trying to get to the nebulizer to open up my air passages. I finally called my pharmacy to find out why I did not get my advair and it turned out that I could still get it and my price was the same as always with my medicare. After just one day I was immediately on the mend.
682098 tn?1236908245 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 n tn Albuterol is a bronchodilator used to treat many of the same issues as Flovent, but it can also be used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Albuterol comes in a syrup, tablet, or as a suspension in an inhaler. Albuterol works by causing the passages to the lung to relax and open, which makes breathing easier.
Avatar m tn I lost my medical insurance and need help with maintaining my prescription of Trileptal. I was told that the internet coupons may not be available in Maine where I live. Other assistance, maybe directly from manufacture? Only need assistance for 6 mos.

Each time she has a spell of not getting her breath she also experiences heart pounding episodes Also after strenuous exercise occasionally this heart pounding occurs.

I dont know why but I assumed it was harmless to use while pregnant. Now im looking online and see its a class C! Im nervous I may have done harm to baby.
