Atrovent is a pulmonary agent for the treatment of the reversible obstructive airway disease. It has an active ingredient ipratropium bromide.
The main task of Atrovent consists in the smooth and long improvement of the airway functions. This drug is used to control the symptoms of the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and reduce the attacks of the bronchial asthma.
A mechanism of the action of Atrovent consists in the inhibition of the reflexes of the smooth muscles of bronchi and respiratory tracts. It prevents a narrowing of bronchi during the interaction with cool air, smoke, allergens or other causing factors.
A regular use of Atrovent improves the functions of the external respiration in patients with the obstructive pulmonary disease: inspiratory and expiratory volume is increased, shortness of breath and feeling of oxygen deficit are decreased.
An improvement of the respiratory function begins in 15 minutes after the use of a one-time dose of Atrovent. The maximal therapeutic effect occurs only in 1-2 hours. It should be taken into account during the treatment of the bronchial asthma because acute bronchospasms need drugs of the faster action.
In what dose is Atrovent used?
Children over 6 years old and adults are recommended to take Atrovent 3 times per day (2-3 inhalations) to treat the obstruction of the airway tracts. In case of the severe course of the bronchial asthma, an additional use of 1-2 doses of Atrovent per day is allowed. This is especially needed before the interaction with allergen or cool air.
Do not take Atrovent more than 4 times per day within 24 hours. If bronchospasms often appear during the bronchial asthma, another dose of Atrovent should be replaced by a drug of the faster action.
Recommendations for the use
- A frequent use of Atrovent may cause an acute bronchospasm. Follow the dose indicated in the instruction and prescribed by your physician
- Patients with severe cardiovascular diseases should take Atrovent carefully
- Atrovent is not recommended during the first term of pregnancy. The treatment is controlled by a doctor during 2 and 3 term of the pregnancy
- Beta-adrenoceptor agonists provide a faster therapeutic effect, and therefore they are better to reduce bronchospasms
As a part of the solution remains in the mouth, patients often complain of dry mouth, irritation of the mucous membrane of the mouth cavity during the use of Atrovent. If you rinse your mouth with water after the inhalation, these side effects may be avoided.
Severer side effects of Atrovent appear seldom: increased heart rate, disorder of the motion of the gastro-intestinal tract, urine retention, high intraocular pressure. Consult a doctor or pharmacist if you have these side effects.
