Cetsim review

Cetsim is very familiar to asthma patients because is one of their help lines when breathing difficulty, chest tightness, and wheezing occurs. Cetsim works by relaxing the muscles in the air passageways to improve breathing. It is also effective in treating pulmonary diseases other than asthma.

Cetsim comes in a liquid solution form, which is placed either in the nebulizer or the inhaler. When used to treat lung diseases, 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 dosage needed in your case based on your symptoms. He will know the correct amount of Cetsim you should use every dosage time and how often you should use it. Do not change the dosage without orders from your doctor. If Cetsim 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 prescription period, call your doctor and ask him whether you must continue using Cetsim or not. Never stop using the medication unless it is advised to do so by your doctor.

Cetsim used through inhalers comes in canisters, which contain 200 inhalations. Once you have used up the labeled number of inhalations the canister contains, you must throw it away and use another canister. Some canisters do not have counters so you need to keep track of the number of inhalations you have used up so that you will know when to change it out. The inhaler with Cetsim aerosol is meant for use only with Cetsim. Do not use other medicines with it in the same way that you cannot use a canister of Cetsim with another inhaler.

Be careful in using the inhaler and the nebulizer. The solution must not come into contact your eyes. It must also not be used near a source of heat or flame. Cetsim may explode when near very high temperatures. Talk with your doctor about the proper way of using the inhaler or nebulizer. Let him watch during your first try. If you are using it on your child, always watch over them while they inhale the medicine to ensure they are doingit properly.

Patients that require extra precautions when using this medication are those with histories of allergies, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and hyperthyroidism. Current drug use, whether it is just a vitamin or herbal supplement, must be mentioned to the doctor as well. Pregnant women and nursing mothers are also considered special cases. As such, doctors may need to adjust the dosages when any of the above mentioned conditions are present.

As with most medications, Cetsim has some known side effects. Normally, side effects like headache, nausea, vomiting, coughing, and throat irritation come mildly. If they persist or worsen as you continue using Cetsim, you will need to make an immediate appointment with your doctor. Equally alarming signs include chest pains, rashes, itching, swelling, swallowing difficulty, and hoarseness. If any symptoms of side effects are present, consult your doctor immediately.

Cetsim should be stored tightly closed and out of reach of children at room temperatures. It must also be kept away from excessive heat and moisture. Ask your doctor on proper handling and disposal of Cetsim to be safe.
