Overview

Introduction

Asthalin Rotacaps belongs to a group of medicines called fast-acting bronchodilators or “relievers”. It’s used to treat the symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) such as coughing, wheezing and feeling short of breath.

You can take Asthalin Rotacaps with or without food. The dose will depend on your condition and how your respond to the medicine. Try to take it at the same time each day. It’s important to keep taking this medicine until your doctor tells you not to. Use this medicine regularly to get the most benefit from it even if you feel well.

Asthalin Rotacaps is generally safe and effective but some common side effects include tremor, headache. fast heart rate, and muscle cramps. These side effects aren't often dangerous and they should gradually improve as your body gets used to this medicine. There are other, rarer, side effects and you should call your doctor straight away if you get chest pain, a very bad headache or very bad dizziness.

Before using Asthalin Rotacapsl, you should tell your doctor if you have high blood pressure, an overactive thyroid gland, a history of heart problems, diabetes or low levels of potassium in your blood to make sure it’s safe. Also make sure your doctor knows if you’re pregnant or breast-feeding before taking this medicine. Because this medicine can make you feel dizzy or shaky, don’t drive, cycle or use tools or machinery until you feel better. And you shouldn’t smoke. Smoking causes damage to your lungs and will make your condition worse.

Side effects of Asthalin Capsule

Common
  • Headache
  • Tremor
  • Muscle cramp

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Headache
    Make sure you rest and drink plenty of fluids. Rest in a quiet, dimly lit room. Do not sleep more than you normally would. Do not strain your eyes (for example by looking at a screen). Do not drink alcohol. Headaches are usually temporary and usually go away with time. But, if they last longer or get worse, ask your doctor to recommend a painkiller.
  • Coping with Tremor
    These symptoms can be a sign that the dose is too high for you. It may help to change your dose or take your medicine at a different time of the day. There are also exercises that can improve muscle strength, control and coordination. In terms of lifestyle, avoid caffeine (in coffee, tea and chocolate), alcohol, and ask your doctor about other techniques to help you relax and manage stress. Talk to your doctor if this bothers you. Your doctor may be able to prescribe you medicines that can help.
  • Coping with Muscle cramp
    Tell your doctor straight away because sometimes the muscle pain may be a sign of something more serious. A lower dosage or a different medication might be needed. Try to relax the cramping muscle by stretching it and holding the stretch. You might massage the muscle or apply a heat pad to the area after stretching. Avoid exercising too much. Stay well-hydrated. Do not take over-the-counter pain relievers unless the doctor prescribes it. Your doctor may also suggest taking supplements, such as calcium, magnesium oxide or potassium oxide depending on your needs.

Quick Tips

  • Asthalin Rotacaps is used to relieve symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) such as coughing, wheezing and breathlessness.
  • The inhalers are called 'reliever' inhalers as they give you quick relief from breathing problems. 
  • Always keep the inhaler upright during loading of the dose and administration steps.
  • If you feel a slightly sweet tasting powder in your mouth after inhaling, you have received the dose and the active substance has reached your lungs.
  • Always replace the inhaler cap after you have used the inhaler.
  • Gargle with warm water after each inhalation to avoid any fungal infections in your mouth and throat.
  • Dry mouth may occur as a side effect. Frequent mouth rinses, good oral hygiene, increased water intake and sugarless candy may help.

FAQs

Q. What would happen if I take higher than the recommended dose of Asthalin?

Taking a higher than the recommended dose of Asthalin may cause seizures, chest pain, nervousness, headache, dry mouth, nausea, dizziness and lack of energy. High doses of Asthalin may also cause fast, irregular or pounding heartbeat, uncontrollable shaking of any part of the body and difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. In any such case, seek immediate medical attention.

Q. Is it safe to take Asthalin if I have heart disease?

Yes, but its use depends on the severity of your heart problem. If you experience chest pain or any other symptom of worsening heart disease while taking Asthalin, you should seek immediate medical advice.

Q. Being a diabetic, what should I remember while taking Asthalin?

Asthalin may cause blood sugar levels to rise. Therefore, your doctor may adjust your dose of insulin or antidiabetic medicines. Keep a regular check on your blood glucose levels and do not miss any appointments.

Q. I have started using Asthalin and I am experiencing headaches and shakiness. Is this because of Asthalin and will these go away?

It could be due to Asthalin. For headaches, drink plenty of water, get sufficient rest and avoid alcohol. Usually headaches go away after a week. If they persist for a long time, contact your doctor. Feeling shaky is a common side effect of Asthalin and goes away after sometime.

Q. When should I take Asthalin?

Use Asthalin as and when you need it. Asthalin relieves the symptoms of asthma like coughing, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest. You can also take it to prevent asthma attacks in circumstances where you know it may occur, example after strenuous exercise or unavoidable exposure to allergen.

Q. Can I smoke if I have been prescribed Asthalin?

No, you should not smoke while taking Asthalin. Smoking irritates the lungs. Especially in asthmatics, it makes breathing more difficult. Take advice from your doctor if you are finding it hard to avoid smoking.
