Cardiomin review

Cardiomin, a bronchodilator, is prescribed to patients suffering from breathing problems. 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 medication is also used to decrease the possibility of allergens that cause inflammation. This medication is commonly used to treat asthma, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. Physicians may also prescribe this medication for other diseases or conditions.

Cardiomin is given through vein infusion or diluted in IV fluids as prescribed by your physician. Dosage depends on the patient’s physical condition, which includes height, weight, response to the therapy, and medication the patient is currently taking.

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

The dosage will need to be adjusted if you quit smoking or stop drinking alcohol while taking this medication. Inform your physician of any changes in your eating or drinking habits to avoid complications or overdose. Elderly patients require a smaller dosage of Cardiomin since they tend to be more prone to side effects and allergic reactions to the medication.

Side effects of Cardiomin depend on various factors, but mostly the patient’s diet and their current condition. Common known side effects include nausea, flushing, diarrhea, 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 medication may suffer from rashes, swelling of the throat, or breathing troubles.

Prior to taking Cardiomin, consult your physician and undergo a complete medical examination to determine whether it's safe for you to use the medication or not. Honesty regarding your history and condition helps avoid side effects. Inform your physician of your current condition, prescription or herbal medications you are currently taking, eating habits, diet, onset of high-blood pressure, allergic reactions, diabetes, or major illnesses before treatment. Also inform your physician if you smoke or drink alcoholic beverages prior to the treatment.
