Are Duoneb and Combivent considered rescue inhalers?
Asked by Dee Fluhman 2 years ago.
Duoneb by definition is a nebulizer. However, the medication in Duoneb (Albuterol and Atrovent) are indeed fast acting medications. Combivent, which contains the same medications as Duoneb, only in a inhaler (MDI). Yes, Combivent is considered to be a rescue inhaler. Don't forget to use your spacer with your inhaler.

I have been on duoneb(inhaler and neublized) a couple years. I started to feel a lot of tightness between shoulders so I started a trial of spiriva so had to get albuterol. I did not really find the spiriva to be working as I expected to be able to cut down on nebulizer and inhaler. I quit the spiriva and tried my duoneb in neb again. Got the tightness again. Feels like a knee in my back. Tried albuterol in neb and it works fine. Could I have built up an intolerance to the other med in duoneb? Answered by Cameron Clineman 2 years ago.
Here is the list of side effects one may experience while using Duoneb. I would recommend that you speak with either your doctor or pharmacist about your concerns. I used Duoneb for a short time, but the side effects were horrible. I switched to albuterol without ipratropium, and do much better. SIDE EFFECTS: Headache, nausea, coughing, dry mouth or sinus congestion may occur. If these continue or are bothersome, notify your doctor. Uncommon effects include: palpitations or irregular heartbeat, chest pain, change in sputum color (infection). Very unlikely but report: dizziness, nervousness, hair loss, fever, coordination problems. In the unlikely event you have a serious allergic reaction to this drug, seek medical attention immediately. Symptoms of a serious allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, trouble breathing. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist. Answered by Dorthey Juriga 2 years ago.
As Barry recommended always talk to your doctor when you are having difficulties with your medications. Duoneb is a combination of albuterol and ipratroprium bromide. Albuterol is a fast acting bronchodilator and the ipratroprium works slower and longer. They are combined to boost the effect of each other. Spiriva is tiotroprium bromide and is a very long acting bronchdilator. You should never take ipratroprium and tiotroprium at the same time. You will get some very nasty side effects. You may need an anti-inflammatory agent like Flovent to your regime, possible even a luekotrine inhibitor like Singular. Please discuss this with your MD. Best of luck.

There a different medications for each delivery method. Nebulizers require a much larger amount of medication to have the same effect as an inhaler, as they are less efficient than inhalers. Inhalers are more convenient, portable, and easy to use at home by yourself. Nebulizers are usually not portable (but there are portable models), normally need to be plugged into a wall to run, require an air compressor or oxygen system to run, and take a lot longer than an inhaler to give yourself a treatment. For example: Albuterol/Salbutamol nebulizer solution is normally 2.5 mg and would usually take 6-10 minutes to give. You could get the same therapeutic effect with 2 inhalations from an inhaler of Albuterol/Salbutamol with a holding chamber. Administering your treatment from an inhaler would take about a minute. Inhalers are faster, inexpensive, portable, and reasonably easy for a regular person to use with proper training. Neither with get you high if you are using the device correctly. If you leave your nebulizer on for "too long", you will not get high. I have given a lot of breathing treatments and nobody has gotten high from them ever. For other respiratory medications, some are available as nebulizer solution and some as various kinds of inhalers. Some are in nebulizer and inhaler forms. It all depends on what drug it is. For Albuterol/Salbutamol, normal doses are: Nebulizer (generic): 2.5 mg Metered Dose Inhaler (regular inhaler): 2 inhalations of 100 mcg [the only dose] inhaled Albuterol Dry Powder Inhaler (like an Advair discus): 1 inhalation of Glaxo Smith Kline Ventolin discus, which is 200 mcg. All three will work just as well as the other, in a perfect world. If you can't inhale in an co-ordinated manner, a nebulizer would work best. Otherwise, an inhaler of some form should be more useful and convenient. Answered by Lisa Bussler 2 years ago.

Can duoneb make you test positive for amphetamines in a urine analysis?
Asked by Gaston Cassels 2 years ago.
No. DuoNeb is a combination drug containing albuterol and ipratropium. Neither drug is an amphetamine. Your urine will not test positive for amphetamines or any other drug of abuse, even though DuoNeb might make you feel like you've taken "speed" after inhaling it. No worries.

Albuterol and atrovent combined make up duoneb-- what does albuterol do that atrovent doesn't and vice versa--

RE: albuterol and atrovent combined make up duoneb-- what does albuterol do that atrovent doesn't and vice versa-- Answered by Patrick Duenas 2 years ago.
Albuterol opens up the airways and alveoli (little sacs in your lungs) Atrovent keeps them open for longer periods of time. Albuterol is used as a rescue inhaler and also as a controlant. Atrovent does not open the alveoli initially but helps keep them open after the albuterol. Hope that makes sense. Answered by Lonna Delrosario 2 years ago.
Albuterol relaxes the muscles surrounding your bronchii when they are already contracted, Atrovent prevents them from spasming. So the combination of the two reverses an asthma attack and prevents another from happening for a few hours. It's also called Combivent. Answered by Ambrose Schnieder 2 years ago.
Albuterol is a bronchial dilator where atrovent is a steroid. You need your bronchi's open via dilation for the most effect benefits of the steroid. Answered by Kathe Shewmaker 2 years ago.

Can you use DuoNeb (pulminary med) back to back?
Asked by Haydee Detullio 2 years ago.
yes you can....it may cause your heart to pump a little faster and you may become shakey. but it is more important for you to keep breathing. if you need them back to back it shouldn't hurt you. in the hospital i've given continuous duoneb treatments to people for hours. of course we monitor the heart rate and everything. if you need more than two... go to the er, b/c odds are you need more, like a steroid to go along with it.

Asked by Stewart Wood 2 years ago.
My white count has not been lower than 17.59 since 2004 when it was 111.23, and last test was 19.73. They have done many tests trying to figure this out (mainly blood tests and xrays). I know its not leukemia but we dont know what it is. I have diabetes and take high doses of insulin and also have COPD and heart problems. Lately my heart rate has been extremely fast, even while resting (around 150-160) and I have been having difficulty getting up or even walking short distances of even 15 feet without falling if there isnt something to grab onto. Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing the high blood counts and if the other health issues may be a part of it. Answered by Cruz Mehan 2 years ago.

Answered by Josef Minero 2 years ago.
I'm sorry you have to take so much medication. Things must be difficult for you! It's possible that your medications are ganging up on you, especially if your kidney and liver functions aren't the best. Anything you take for reflux also has a way of interacting with other medications. Your racing heart and dizziness suggest that perhaps you need to have your endocrinologist reconsider your doses of synthroid and your pravastatin. Do you have to take reglan everyday? The tachycardia and apparent orthostatic drop in blood pressure need to be addressed - do you have a low ejection fraction? Is your toprol a new med for you? Is your COPD emphysema or bronchitis (or asthma)? (Don't know duoneb - a kind of nebulizer?) Is the iron for anemia? Your white counts of 17-20 aren't terrible - but you don't say what the rest of your blood counts look like. You mention the folic acid - did you take methotrexate at some point? See if you can find an internal medicine doc who knows about medication interactions. Or - befriend a hospital/clinical pharmacist, and see if there are diffferent medications you might switch over to (under that person's supervision). If one person isn't coordinating all your care, you should find someone who can take on that function. Good Luck! Answered by Ava Hagner 2 years ago.
Duonem is used in the treatment of what ?
drug given after surgery
Asked by Tia Heppe 2 years ago.
I haven't heard of Duonem. I am very familiar with Duoneb though. Duoneb is a combination of two bronchodilators that is nebulized for treatment of asthma, COPD, and wheezing. Sometimes after surgery, the patient's breath sounds will be wheezy. A breathing treatment of Albuterol, Atrovent, or Duoneb (Albuterol and Atrovent) should make the wheezing go away for 4 to 6 hours at a time. Wheezing can happen after surgery in all patients because of the anesthesia gases, laying in bed for longer periods of time than normal, and from the artificial airway (endotracheal tube) that was placed before the surgery to keep the patient's airway under control and allow for temporary mechanical ventilation. Usually, the patient returns to their normal condition after a day or two. In addition, oxygen is often on patients for a day or so after surgery. The body has to adjust itself back to normal, so it needs a bit of oxygen and breathing treatments to help it along. Answered by Shane Boyer 2 years ago.
Do you mean "Duoneb"? The combination of ipratropium and albuterol is used to prevent wheezing, difficulty breathing, chest tightness, and coughing in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD; a group of diseases that affect the lungs and airways) such as chronic bronchitis (swelling of the air passages that lead to the lungs) and emphysema (damage to the air sacs in the lungs). Ipratropium and albuterol combination is used by people whose symptoms have not been controlled by a single inhaled medication. Ipratropium and albuterol are in a class of medications called bronchodilators. Ipratropium and albuterol combination works by relaxing and opening the air passages to the lungs to make breathing easier. Please see the web pages for more details on Ipratropium and Albuterol (generic name) Duoneb (brand name). Answered by Jessenia Kogen 2 years ago.
