Selection Of The Right Medication For Asthma?
Hello, I am a man aged 23 years. I have been suffering from asthma since childhood. Every day I take the drug TEOSAL. And I want to replace the drug Sephrot Inheler.
Hello, thanks for asking.
In people with asthma, they often have to take long-term medication. Asthma consists of several degrees, depending on the frequency of attacks and how severe the symptoms that arise. People with asthma generally have to have lung function tests at least once a year. This is important to do, so that doctors can monitor the progress of the disease. The doctor will adjust the type and dosage of the drug based on the results of your lung function tests.
The drug that you consume contains 1 mg of salbutamol and 130 mg of theophylline. Inhalers consist of two types, namely reliever inhalers and preventive inhalers. The drugs used in relievers are generally the short-acting beta agonist. Reliever inhalers are used during an attack. Preventing inhalers are used before an attack occurs. Generally, prevention inhalers contain anti-inflammatory steroids. If the use of inhalers is very frequent in a week, then the type and dosage of the drug should be reviewed. The doctor may also give you an inhaler containing a long-acting beta agonist. Theophylline is generally taken orally.
Then you can draw the conclusion that the transfer of drugs from oral drugs to inhalers, you can not do just like that without consulting with the doctor who treats you. The doctor needs to know your lung function first, find the right type of inhaler, and assess whether there are problems with the use of the inhaler. Hope you do not carelessly use an inhaler, because improper use, it is not likely to cause fatal complications.
Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
