Aerobec review

Aerobec is a glucocorticoid steroid medication used in the treatment of a number of different irritations in the body. As an inhaler, it is used to alleviate asthma symptoms. Since it works directly on the lungs, it has fewer side effects than other steroidal anti-inflammatory medicaments. It is also widely used as a nasal spray to treat symptoms of rhinitis and sinusitis. Aerobec nasal spray can be used for treating nasal polyps - either to prevent their recurrence after being surgically removed or to prevent them from growing larger. This spray has also been used in some cases to treat sever cases of persistent canker sores.

An ointment preparation is also available for treating certain severe inflammatory disorders of the skin, especially in cases that do not respond to other less potent topical steroids. It has also been used to treat ulcerative colitis along with other medicaments as a controlled-release pill in the United Kingdom

Doctors usually prescribe this medication to those suffering from both seasonal allergic rhinitis and perennial allergic rhinitis. It is also used by asthma patients for the prevention of asthma attacks. It is important to note that Aerobec is used as a preventive measure and will not work as effectively to stop ongoing asthma attacks. It is also not usually prescribed when other existing non-steroidal medicaments already work.

Dosage for the inhaler varies and depends on the severity of asthma symptoms and the doctor's instructions. Aerobec may also be used in conjunction with other anti-asthma medication. Being a preventive medication, continue to use the inhaler even as conditions improve unless specifically ordered by your physician not to.

Unless you are using a QVAR inhaler, shake the inhaler prior to using. Exhale as much air out of your lungs as possible. Now, application can be done either by open mouth or closed mouth inhalation. Breathe in slowly and deeply through the mouthpiece while pressing down to spray the Aerobec medication. As you inhale, make sure the medicated mist goes down to your lungs and does not stray into your mouth or throat. Care should also be taken that the mist does not escape through the nose. After holding your breath for about 5 to 10 seconds exhale slowly. If a second shot of the inhaler is required, wait for 2 minutes before repeating the steps above.

The recommended dosage for the nasal spray is about 2 sprays to each nostril twice a day, but not more than 12 applications per day for adults and 8 applications a day for children. However, always follow any specific instructions given by your doctor.

Clear your nasal passages before using the nasal spray. Put the nozzle of the nasal spray in one of your nostrils and inhale deeply as you squeeze the bottle - taking care to close the other nostril as you do this. Repeat this for the other nostril.

Aerobec may cause minor side effects such as irritation or drying of the mouth and throat, coughing, or difficulty speaking. Consult with your doctor if these become bothersome or persist.

Some side effects may require immediate medical attention. These may include rashes, difficulty breathing, skin edema in the face and lower extremities, extended cold or other similar infections and muscle weakness.

Aerobec should not be used while the patient has an active infection of the mucus lining in the nose as its effects may be reduced. Report to your physician if the spit coughed up in an asthma attack becomes thicker or changes from a clear white discharge to yellow, green, or gray secretions.

Clean inhaler mouthpieces regularly in warm water and remember to re-prime nasal spray bottles by pumping twice when not used for an extended period of time.
