Can You Dilute The Drug Salbutamol With Water?
I want to ask you to suffer from asthma so I always have Ventolin nebul when my asthma ankles relapse. I am reluctant to close Ventolin nbul but there are no nacl, so I give plain water, can it be like that, because the emergency is too low for the day when I can’t come, I’m not close.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
The product you mentioned is a branded drug with an active ingredient in the form of salbutamol. This drug is a class of lozenges that can be used in the treatment of asthma attacks (acute exacerbations). Basically, salbutamol dilution for handling asthma attacks in children is recommended to use sterile NaCl liquid to reach 2-2.5 mL before it is used for nebulation. The products you mentioned are generally available in the form of a single dose unit of 2.5 mL containing 2.5 mg of salbutamol. With this volume, this drug is ready to be used for nebulisation. If you don't have sterile NaCl solution for dilution, you can just use the medicine to put it into a nebulisation device. The use of any solvent is feared to interfere with the effectiveness of the drug. Do not hesitate to consult with a doctor or pediatrician who treats your child regarding instructions for using the drug because the drug is a hard drug whose use must be according to prescriptions, instructions, and supervision by a doctor who treats patients directly.
