About Bricanyl Turbohaler

Bricanyl Turbohaler is an effective treatment for the short-term relief of asthma symptoms. It can also be used as a preventative treatment to stop asthma symptoms from occurring after exercise. Bricanyl Turbohaler is also effective at relieving associated breathing problems linked with certain chest diseases. The active ingredient is Terbutaline Sulfate, which will ease breathing within five minutes of use and will continue working for up to six hours after administration.

One advantage of the Bricanyl Turbohaler is that it's a breath-actuated dry powder inhaler. This makes it easier to use than most other inhalers, which require you to time your pressing and inhaling correctly.

Bricanyl Turbohaler is classified as a prescription-only-medicine (POM). Repeat supplies of Bricanyl Turbohaler are available to buy from us, following a free consultation.

Bricanyl Turbohaler is used for asthma and other breathing problems characterized by difficulty in breathing.

Terbutaline is a drug from the group of adrenergic receptor agonists with bronchodilator actions, which is why it is indicated in medicine in the short-term treatment of asthma, and of pulmonary obstructions such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis, as well as a Tocolytic to delay possible preterm birth or intrapartum fetal resuscitation. There are no long-term benefits of using terbutaline to prevent preterm delivery, especially compared to the number of side effects from the use of this medicine as tocolytic. The inhaled form of terbutaline begins its effect immediately after inhalation and its action can last up to 6 hours. It can cause tremors, dizziness, tremors, headache, and, in the fetus, hypoglycemia.

Bricanyl is used for the treatment of asthma and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). The symptoms associated with these diseases are attacks of dyspnea, chest tightness, and cough.

Bricanyl has a decompressing effect and reduces symptoms. The improvement is noticeable in a matter of minutes. The action of the drug lasts approximately six hours.
