Ammophyllin review

Ammophyllin is a medicament given to patients suffering from breathing problems. This prescribed medicament is commonly used to treat asthma, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis.

Ammophyllin is a bronchodilator. It 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 medicament is also used to decrease the possibility of allergens that cause inflammation. Patients suffering from lung-related problems, such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and asthma can use Ammophyllin. Doctors may also prescribe this medicament for other diseases or conditions.

Ammophyllin is given through vein infusion or diluted in IV fluids as prescribed by your doctor. The dosage depends on the patient's physical condition, which includes height and weight, response to the therapy, and the medicament the patient is currently taking.

When Ammophyllin is mixed with IV fluids, a yellowish discoloration is normal. IV fluids with crystallizations or minute particles when the medicament is mixed must be discarded and not given to the patient.

A dosage adjustment will be necessary if you quit smoking or stop drinking alcohol while taking this medicament. Inform your doctor of any changes in your eating or drinking habits to avoid complications or overdose. Elderly patients require a smaller dosage of Ammophyllin since they tend to be more prone to side effects and allergic reactions to the medicament.

Side effects of Ammophyllin depend on various factors, but mostly the patient's diet and their current condition. Common side effects of the medicament include nausea, flushing, diarrhoea, vomiting, loss of appetite, nervousness, irritability, mood change, trouble sleeping, or a slight increase in urination.

Seek immediate medical attention if the patient is suffering from coffee-ground vomit, stomach pains, fainting or dizziness; severe mental/behavioral/mood change, irregular heartbeat, rapid breathing, chest pain, muscle twitching, or seizures.

Patients allergic to the medicament may suffer from rashes, swelling of the throat, or breathing troubles. It is advised to consult your doctor and undergo a complete medical examination to determine whether it's safe for you to use the medicament or not.

Consult with a doctor before using Ammophyllin. Honesty regarding your history and condition helps avoid side effects. Inform your doctor of your current condition, prescription or herbal medicaments you are currently taking, eating habits, diet, onset of high-blood pressure, allergic reactions, diabetes, or major illnesses before treatment. Also inform your doctor if you smoke or drink alcoholic beverages prior to the treatment.
