Accuneb review

Asthmatic patients are all too familiar with Accuneb. It is one of their helplines when breathing difficulty, chest tightness, and wheezing occurs. Accuneb works by relaxing the muscles in the air passageways to improve breathing. It is also effective in treating pulmonary illnesses other than asthma.

Accuneb comes in a liquid solution form, which is placed either in the nebulizer or the inhaler. When used to treat lung illnesses, it is used at least every six hours; when used to improve breathing, it is used every 15 to 30 minutes. Consult your doctor for the exact dose needed in your case based on your symptoms. He will know the correct amount of Accuneb you should use every dose time and how often you should use it. Do not change the dose without orders from your doctor. If Accuneb no longer controls your symptoms or if you feel that your symptoms worsen even after taking the drug, call your doctor immediately. If your symptoms get better before you complete the prescription period, call your doctor and ask him whether you must continue using Accuneb or not. Never stop using the medication unless it is advised to do so by your doctor.

Accuneb used through inhalers comes in canisters. Each canister contains 200 inhalations. Once you have used up the labeled number of inhalations the canister contains, you must throw it away and make use of another canister. Some canisters do not have counters. In this case, you need to keep track of the number of inhalations you have used up by yourself so you will know when to change it. The inhaler with Accuneb aerosol is meant for use only with Accuneb. Do not use other medicines with it in the same way that you cannot use a canister of Accuneb with another inhaler.

Be careful in using the inhaler and the nebulizer. The solution must not come into contact your eyes. It must also not be used near a source of heat or flame. Accuneb may explode when near very high temperatures. Take a lesson from your doctor on the proper way of using the inhaler or nebulizer. Let him watch during your first try. If you are using it on your child, always watch over them while they inhale the medicine.

Extra care must be taken for patients with histories of allergies, heart illness, hypertension, diabetes, and hyperthyroidism. Current drug use, whether it is just a vitamin or herbal supplement, must be mentioned to the doctor as well. Pregnant women and nursing mothers are also considered special cases. As such, doctors may need to adjust the doses when any of the above mentioned conditions are present.

Accuneb causes side effects. Normally, side effects like cephalalgia, wamble, emesis, coughing, and throat irritation come mildly. If they persist or worsen as you continue using Accuneb, you will need to make an immediate appointment with your doctor. Equally alarming signs include chest pains, rashes, itching, swelling, swallowing difficulty, and hoarseness.

Accuneb must be stored tightly closed and out of reach of children at room temperatures. It must also be kept away from excessive heat and moisture. Ask your doctor on proper handling and disposal of Accuneb to be safe.
