Asthmatic patients should be familiar with Aerolin
as it is one of their helplines when breathing difficulty, chest tightness, and wheezing occurs. Aerolin works by relaxing the muscles in the air passageways to improve breathing. It is also effective in treating pulmonary illnesss other than asthma
Aerolin comes in a liquid solurinary tract infectionon, which is placed either in a nebulizer or an inhaler. When used to treat lung
illnesss, 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 and condition. Do not change the dose unless advised by your doctor to do so. If Aerolin 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 treatment period, call your doctor to discuss whether you need to continue on the treatment plan or not. Never stop using the medicament unless advised by your doctor.
Aerolin used through inhalers comes in canisters, which contain 200 inhalations. Once you have used the labeled number of inhalations the canister contains, you must throw it away and begin using another canister. Some canisters do not have counters on them. In this case, you need to keep track of the number of inhalations you have used so you will know when to change it. The inhaler with Aerolin aerosol is meant for use only with Aerolin. Do not use other medicines with it.
Be careful in using the inhaler and the nebulizer. The solurinary tract infectionon must not come into contact your eyes and must not be used near a source of heat or flame. Aerolin may explode when near very high temperatures. Have your doctor show you the proper way of using the inhaler or nebulizer. Then let him watch during your first try. If you are using it on your child, always watch them while they take their medicine.
Extra care must be taken for patients with histories of allergies
illness, high blood pressure
, and hyperthyroidism
. Current medicaments, even if just a vitamin or herbal supplement, must be mentioned to the doctor. Pregnant women and nursing mothers are also considered special cases. As such, doctors may need to adjust the dose when any of the above mentioned situations are present.
Aerolin has some known side effects such as cephalalgia, wamble, vomiting
, coughing, and throat irritation which typically come on mildly. If they persist or worsen as you continue using Aerolin, you will need to talk with your doctor. Equally alarming signs include chest pains, rashes, itching
, skin edema, swallowing
difficulty, and hoarseness. If any of these symptoms arise, call your doctor immediately.
Aerolin must be stored tightly closed and out of reach of children at room temperatures and must also be kept away from excessive heat and moisture. Ask your doctor for proper handling and disposal of Aerolin to be safe.
