Avatar n tn hi, my question is can we mix albuterol, ipratropium, pulmacort together and the order is give these medication together by nebulizer.
Avatar f tn I purchased the Omron Portable Ultrasonic Nebulizer and am using the vials of Albuterol and Ipratropium. I can only use 1/2 vial because more than that speeds my heart up too much. Can I save the last 1/2 of the vial for later use? Does anybody know of a more affordable way to get the medicine I need? I am paying out of pocket and this economy gets harder every day it seems like.
Avatar f tn Any suggested as to which inhaler would work best? also, would a nebulizer - Ipratropium Bromide 0.5mg and Albuterol Sulfate 3.0mg help? Finally what is the difference in inhalers Albuterol, Alvesco. Combivent?

Avatar m tn I've been having fuzziness, is it okay for me to discontinue use of my albuterol nebulizer and budesonide?

Avatar n tn Xopenx 1.25 mg and Ipratropium Bromide 0.02%.
Avatar f tn Well, you cannot compare the dosage of the two forms as the rate of drug absorption is different between the two forms. Both forms are effective. The 2.5ml nebules contain 2.5mg of Albuterol and 0.5mg of Ipratropium and can be used for nebulizer two to four times a day. So, if you have been advised puff 4 times a day, you can also use nebulizer four times a day. However, ask your doctor first. Take care!
Avatar n tn I used to use a duo med (albuterol + ipratropium). When I mentioned this to my doctor he sugeested that I not use the ipratropium because it has a tendency to dry out your lungs (he tells me this after the fact). I stopped using ipratropium and only use tha albuterol on an as needed basis and at first my lungs were not as dry. But as time went on the problem resurfaced again. I was told to try B5 and that only seemed to make the problem worse. Does anyone have any suggestions?
223152 tn?1346978371 A friend of mine has changed prescriptions and has offered some Duo Neb (Ipratropium bromide and albuterol sulfate). I have looked these up on the internet and the albuterol dosage appers appropriate for children. However, the ipratropium bromide has not been tested on children, apparantly. What could happen if he used it?
Avatar n tn I had so many problems when I was using Albuterol in an inhaler. I then started using Albuterol with Ipratropium together in a nebulizer and it worked so much better for me. I only use the Albuterol inhaler now just as a rescue inhaler. Emergencies only! I also use Spiriva and Pulmicort Tubohaler. These two inhalers have helped me more than any inhaler I have ever used. They are powder inhalers but they are work so much better for me.
Avatar n tn P.S. Albuterol, if you are using it, is drying. That is another reason for using a mucolytic. I use an albuterol combination in a nebulizer. I can't do without it, but the B5 reverses the drying.
Avatar f tn Yes, Atrovent is ipratropium bromide is used for COPD. I use Duoneb which is a combination of albuterol and ipratropium. You are making me wonder if I can manage with ipratropium alone. I have never tried it. I will ask my lung doctor. I use a portable nebulizer. With that I can take as little as I need (or as much).
Avatar n tn What you describe, including improvement with Combivent® Inhalation Aerosol (ipratropium bromide and albuterol sulfate), suggests that you may have cough variant asthma; that is, asthma with cough rather than wheeze as the main symptom. This asthma may or may not be related to the anesthesia administered 18 years ago but that is of no consequence. You should seek evaluation for asthma, by your doctor or by a lung specialist also known as a pulmonologist.
Avatar f tn The only prescription medication I use now is Duoneb (albuterol and ipratropium) in a nebulizer. I use about two ampules a day. I do not use a rescue inhaler. Instead I have a small, portable nebulizer. It is so small that it fits into my purse. The advantage is that I can take as little as I need, sometimes just a few puffs. It is made by Omron and costs about $200. It is worth every cent.
757137 tn?1347196453 This is used as an alternative to Albuterol if the side effects are severe with Albuterol. This could also be used in conjunction with Albuterol, to relieve acute flare ups of Asthma. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I have been using albuterol sulfate with a nebulizer every 4 hours for over 2 years, do I need to wean my self off of this?
Avatar n tn But you can use the Albuterol and the Ipratropium to keep the lungs clear instead of the prednisone for at least two weeks. Make sure you have enough solution on hand. You can always go back to the prednisone. I think you need at least a week off the prednisone. That is a half-____ guess.I wouldad that allphysicians treat with prednisone plus antibiotics.My opinion is this is going in two different directions.I am not going to go into "tapeting off".
Avatar n tn My son is taking albuterol through the nebulizer. He is having nose bleeds Is this common?
Avatar m tn Can methylprednisolone be used in a nebulizer? This lady has a bad reaction to decadron but tolerates solumedrol. History of Graves, chroinc angioedema and multiple environmental allergies.
Avatar f tn Phill, the nebulizer just delivers the albuterol in a better form, doesn't it? It's still albuterol? If your doc knows you're on that, it sounds like it would probably be safe to take. Do you have an after hours nurse you could call to confirm that? If you can't get your breathing under control and you feel like you can't catch your breath it's an emergency situation - you can always go to the ER and they will treat you right away. Best wishes with it.
Avatar n tn You will never get entirely rid of the problem, but the generaly theory is to hit these attacks hard with prednisone for VERY short periods when they start, and then follow up with several days of albuterol sulfate from an electrical inhaler, and ipratropium bromide. Also, make sure you use an expectorant to break up the mucus before it hardens. If you get an inhaler do not permit the drug store to give you the "drug store fact sheet".
Avatar m tn that immediately gave me a steroid injection and had my chest x-rayed(came back normal) han me begin inhaling Albuterol Sulfate and Ipratropium Bromide using a nebulizer. And prescribed Avelox 400MG for a 10 day period. Not working then so they gave me another shot of steroid only this one had to be adminisgtered in my hip because of the volume and thickness (they said my arm could not be used for this one) they prescribed Levaduin 750 MG for 5 days, T.pearls and continue the nebulizer.
1507301 tn?1289936394 I use a nebulizer (albuterol and ipratropium), and take natural anti-inflammatories and an antihistamine for allergies. If you get a peak flow meter you will be able to assess your condition (not the infection, of course) and your progress, or lack thereof.
Avatar n tn My mother (68 yrs) had pneumonia with back pain back in February. At that time her pulmonologist did a chest x-ray. She finally showed me the test result and it revealed a "4cm mass in lower left lobe". She says that after the round of meds, she went back and he did another x-ray ant it came back clear. My question is this---why would the original x-ray show a "mass" as opposed to "fluid" or "shadow". Her symptoms from the pneumonia have gone...
