is a medication administered to patients who are having breathing problems. This prescribed medication is commonly used to treat asthma

Aminocardol is a bronchodilator that relaxes the muscles in the chest and lungs
to allow more oxygen intake, as well as increasing the contraction of your diaphragm to allow more air to pass through to the lungs. This medication is also used to decrease the possibility of allergens that causes inflammation. Patients suffering from lung-related problems, such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and asthma can use Aminocardol. Doctors may also prescribe the medication for other diseases or problems.
Aminocardol is given vein infusion -- or diluted in IV fluids as directed by your doctor. The dosage of the medication depends on your physical condition -- which includes height and weight, response to the therapy, and the current medication the patient is taking in.
Physical manifestation may appear when Aminocardol is mixed with IV fluids. Yellowish discoloration is said to be normal. IV fluids with crystallizations or minute particles when the medication is mixed must not be administered to the patient.
A dosage adjustment is necessary if you quit smoking
or have stopped drinking alcohol to avoid side effects. Inform your doctor or physician of any changes in your eating or drinking habits to avoid complications or overdose. Elderly patients require a smaller dosage of Aminocardol since they are more prone to side effects and possible allergic reactions
to the medication.

, flushing, diarrhea
, appetite loss, nervousness, irritability or mood change, sleeping trouble, or a slight increase in urination
It is essential that a doctor is informed when a patient under the treatment of Aminocardol is suffering from coffee-ground vomit, stomach

A patient must first consult a doctor or physician before using Aminocardol. Honesty helps avoid side effects. Inform your doctor of your current condition, prescription or herbal medications you are currently using, eating habits and diet, onset of high-blood pressure, allergic reactions, diabetes
, or major illnesses in any part of your body before treatment. It is also best to inform your doctor or physician if you are smoking or drinking alcoholic beverages prior to the treatment.
