Loftan review





Asthma patients are usually quite familiar with Loftan as it is typically one of their help lines when breathing difficulty, chest tightness, and wheezing occurs. Loftan works by relaxing the muscles in the air passageways to improve breathing. It is also effective in treating pulmonary illnesss other than asthma.

Loftan comes in a liquid solurinary tract infectionon that is placed either in the nebulizer or the inhaler. Dosage and frequency will vary based on the illness being treated and each patient's symptoms so make certain you consult your doctor before use. 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. Do not alter your dosage without instructions from your doctor. If Loftan 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 Loftan or not. Never stop using the medication unless it is advised to do so by your doctor.

Loftan that is used through inhalers comes in canisters. Each canister contains 200 inhalations. Once you have used the labeled number of inhalations the canister contains, you must throw it away and begin using another canister. When a canister does not have counters, you need to keep track of the number of inhalations you have used so you know when to change it. The inhaler with Loftan aerosol is meant for use only with Loftan. Do not use other medicines with the Loftan inhaler in the same way that you cannot use a canister of Loftan with another inhaler.

Be careful in using the inhaler and the nebulizer. The solurinary tract infectionon should not come in contact with your eyes. And you cannot use the solurinary tract infectionon near a source of heat or flame. Loftan may explode when close to very high temperatures. Learn from your doctor 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 them while they adminster the medicine.

Extra care must be taken for patients with histories of allergies, heart illness, hypertension, 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. Doctors may need to adjust the dosages when any of the above mentioned conditions are present.

Loftan causes side effects. Normally, side effects like headache, wamble, emesis, coughing, and throat irritation come mildly. If they persist or worsen as you continue using Loftan, you will need to make an immediate appointment with your doctor. Equally alarming signs include chest pains, rashes, itching, skin edema, swallowing difficulty, and hoarseness.

Loftan must 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 Loftan to be safe.
