Your doctor has recommended an Asthalin Inhaler to you, but you’re not sure what it is or whether you should use it. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about this treatment option.
What an Asthalin Inhaler is
An Asthalin inhaler is a way of taking medication for respiratory issues. Rather than swallowing a pill, it allows for medication to be absorbed directly into your lungs. They are used to treat asthma and other pulmonary diseases; however, they can also be used to help with common colds or even allergies. When people experience difficulty breathing due to wheezing and coughing, stealing can provide short-term relief from their symptoms and soothe inflammation in their lungs.
What conditions can be treated with it
There are many different conditions that can be treated with an Asthalin inhaler. The most common conditions are asthma, allergies, and sinusitis. However, some people who don’t suffer from one of these conditions may find that using a levalbuterol (or salbutamol) inhaler helps them to breathe easier and fight off any of these three conditions. Many people who use asthma medications have found relief in using a breathing relief medication while they are suffering from allergies or sinusitis.
Who can use it
*Anybody can use it!* *People with breathing problems* *Asthmatics* *Pulmonary Fibrosis patients* *COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) sufferers. It’s safe for anybody over age 12 with a stable asthma condition. *It doesn’t contain any steroids or other drugs and does not interfere with existing medications. *Allergies, hay fever, and exercise-induced asthma are also helped by Asthalin.* As always, talk to your doctor before using a new medication or supplement.
How does it wrork
Ventolin is a brand name for albuterol sulfate, a medication that opens up your airways. It does so by stimulating receptors in your airways to relax and widen, making it easier to breathe. Because Ventolin contains a quick-acting bronchodilator (albuterol), it’s only useful in situations where your breathing has become extremely restricted—most of us need an inhaler that can keep our airways open even when we are not actively experiencing respiratory distress. For these longer-term needs, there’s Asthalin.
What are the ingredients?
The active ingredient in Asthalin, formoterol fumarate dihydrate, is a short-acting bronchodilator used to treat asthma and COPD. Asthma occurs when inflamed tissue makes it hard for air to pass through your lungs. Symptoms of asthma include coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing. The symptoms of COPD are similar but usually less severe than those experienced by people with asthma. They include shortness of breath and cough with phlegm (sputum).
Are there any side effects?
Just like every medication, there are side effects to using an Asthalin inhaler. Most of these are mild, but some can be serious. The best way to find out if a side effect will be a problem for you is to talk with your doctor about it. You should also make sure that you understand everything he or she tells you. Do not stop taking Asthalin without talking to your doctor first. If you experience any of these symptoms, call 911 or go to an emergency room right away: chest pain; difficulty breathing; fainting; fast heartbeat; high fever; severe headache; slurred speech; unusual behavior changes (like confusion); vision problems or sudden vision loss.
How does it compare to other products like Ventolin?
An Asthalin inhaler uses a slightly different technology to deliver asthma medication directly into your lungs. This can be more comfortable than other types of inhalers, like Ventolin. But, just because it’s comfortable doesn’t mean it will always give you better results. If your doctor recommends using an Asthalin inhaler, ask him or her to review how your asthma has been treated and make sure it’s appropriate for your situation. You should not try any medications on your own; talk to a doctor about getting relief from asthma symptoms. The best treatment plan for asthma depends on many factors, including lifestyle considerations and whether other conditions are present such as allergies or heart disease.
How much does it cost?
Even though any one of these devices can help your asthma symptoms, they don’t come cheap. An epinephrine (Asthma) inhaler may cost anywhere from $20 to $100, while a nebulizer (Intermittent) typically runs from $250 to more than $1,000. And if you add in other important equipment like a peak flow meter and spacer, expect to spend about $400 on that alone.
