You should take your nebulizer before you go to work, or on the way, (there are the nebs that plug into the cig lighter), then you should be allotted your lunch so around 11:30 or 12 I would take the next one. You should be home to take the next one at 4 and the last before you head to bed. Usually you should space your treatment 4 hours apart (since they continue to act for about 4 hours) But I think that would be the most convenient method. Good luck and I hope it all works out By the way...I am a respiratory therapist so I'm not just pulling things out of thin air:) Answered by Elizebeth Polanco 6 months ago.
You can do it at 7 am, then again at 11 am or noon at work (whenever you take a lunch), then at 3 or 4, and before you go to bed. Or 7 am, 3 pm, and 11 pm for three times a day. Answered by Almeta Reisert 6 months ago.
My question is ... do you normally take it 3 times or 4 times ...??? If you normally take it 3 times ... which is every 8 hours ... you would take take it at 630 am ....230pm ... and 1030 pm .... there about .... its ok to be plus or minus 1 hour .... If you take it normally 4 times a day .... which is every 6 hours .... i would again take it at 630 am ... somewhere around your lunch time .... if you can .... noon or noon thirty .... then again at 5PM and 1030 PM ..... tailor it to your needs ... The duration of action of this drug is 6 to 8 hours ... depending on its efficacy for you .... you may get less coverage ... say 5 hours ... you are the best judge of that ... so tailor your times for your comfort of breathing .. take care friend!

BE SURE TO TAKE A NEB TX FIRST THING IN THE AM, AND LAST THING AT NIGHT BEFORE YOU GO TO BED. AND THEN ONE WHEN YOU GET HOME FROM WORK. BUT, I WOULD TAKE THE MACHINE WITH ME IF I WERE YOU, JUST IN CASE. Answered by Calista Rius 6 months ago.
Can asthma medication raise your heart rate?
Anytime I take my inhaler, straight after my heart feels like it's racing, is this normal ? Thanks!!
Asked by Letha Saletta 6 months ago.
I take it your inhaler is albuterol (Proventil, Ventolin, Proventil-HFA, Accuneb, etc.) but please correct me if I'm wrong. Do you take any routine medications? Could be a drug interaction as albuterol interacts with certain medications that are in your system and albuterol by itself can temporarily elevate heart rate (and blood pressure). Xopenex (ZO-peh-nex) doesn't have as strong an effect on heart rate, BP, etc. but doesn't come in inhaler form. As I'm sure this is uncomfortable for you speak to your prescribing physician about this. Answered by Denis Maragh 6 months ago.
Yes, it can cause your heart to race. Mention it to your doctor. You may need to be prescribed a different inhaler. Answered by Marianna Salvador 6 months ago.

Albuterol is the drug which is used as a rescue inhaler; it dilates the bronchial tubes, allowing for greater passage of air. It comes under several different brand names: Ventolin, Proventil, Proventil-HFA, AccuNeb, Vospire, ProAir I haven't looked each of these up, but quite likely they are packaged in different colors. Still, it is the same medication, perhaps with a slightly different carrier. Besides using an inhaler, sometimes a physician will prescribe albuterol that comes in nebules, which are used in a nebulizer machine that causes the liquid medication to become a vapor that can be inhaled. This way of medicating is usually experienced as more effective, but it is often less portable and takes significantly longer to administer. Contact your prescribing provider to tell what happened to your inhaler and ask for a replacement. You can also ask to have the albuterol administered via a nebulizer to use for days that you are required to undergo much greater physical exertion. Answered by Reena Taiwo 6 months ago.

Ventolin, Proventil, albuterol, ProAir and most rescue inhalers are albuterol sulfate. Albuterol is the most common nebulizer treatment also. Short-Acting Bronchodilator Inhalers Available in the United States Include: Albuterol (AccuNeb, Proventil HFA, Ventolin HFA, also available as a generic solution for nebulizers. Alupent (Metaproterenol, available as a generic solution for nebulizers. Levalbuterol (Xopenex) Pirbuterol (Maxair) There are a variety of longer lasting or maintenance inhalers but these don't work like rescue inhalers and often contain a corticosteroid.
