ASTHALIN INHALER (ALBUTEROL)
Asthalin Inhaler Description
Asthalin Inhaler or the generic alternative Albuterol is prescribed for treating and preventing the symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. These symptoms include wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. When inhaled as directed, Asthalin Inhaler releases the Albuterol directly into the airways leading to your lungs and relaxes them. Once the airways have relaxed, your lungs are able hold a better supply of air and the wheezing and chest tightness subsides. Asthalin Inhaler holds fast-acting medication that can be used to stop an asthma attack but the effects are short-lived so you will also require a long-acting drug.
Albuterol is most commonly taken using an inhaler device. Inhaling the medicine allows it to act directly in the lungs where it is needed most. It also reduces the potential for side effects occurring in other parts of the body, as the amount absorbed into the blood through the lungs is lower than if the medicine is taken by mouth.
Conditions Treated by Asthalin Inhaler
COPD is a collective name for chronic bronchitis and emphysema, both of which can be helped by the rapid effects of Asthalin Inhaler. Chronic bronchitis results from irritated bronchial tubes and eventual scarring after exposure to air pollution, dust and chemicals in the work-place, and smoking. As time passes, you begin producing mucus that thickens your bronchial tubes and impedes airflow.
Emphysema proceeds more slowly and is a direct result of years of smoking. The air sacs in your lungs become damaged and your lungs are unable to send sufficient oxygen to your bloodstream. This causes breathing difficulties and although Asthalin Inhaler or generic Albuterol can help relieve your shortness of breath, it is not a cure for COPD or asthma. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product. Asthalin inhalers can also be used shortly before exercising or exposure to allergens to open the airways and prevent wheezing.
