Overview

Introduction

Levolin 50mcg Inhaler belongs to a group of medicines called fast-acting bronchodilators or “relievers”. It is used to treat the symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) such as coughing, wheezing and feeling short of breath.

Levolin 50mcg Inhaler is called "reliever" inhalers because they give you quick relief from breathing problems when you need it. In most cases, you will be given another inhaler to prevent your symptoms (a “preventer”) and you should use this regularly every day. Levolin 50mcg Inhaler works quickly and the effects can last several hours. You can take it at any time of day, but only use it when you notice symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest or you know that you are going to do an activity that can make you breathless. When an asthma attack happens, you should take the number of puffs your doctor recommends. There are several types of inhaler device so make sure you know how to use your inhaler correctly, otherwise it may not work. Do not stop using this medicine unless your doctor tells you to. If you stop, your breathing problems could get worse.

Levolin 50mcg Inhaler is generally safe and effective but some common side effects include dizziness, vomiting, pain and stuffy nose. These side effects are not 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.

CHILD IS SUFFERING FROM ASTHAMA AND TAKES LEVOLIN AND BEUDICORT WHEN NEEDED. SEROFLO INHALER AND MONTAIR TAB. WHAT IS THE PERMANENT TREATMENT. PLZ SUGGEST
Dr. Gopal Samdani
Paediatrics
Get vaccinated for influenza and pneumonia. Staying current with vaccinations can prevent flu and pneumonia from triggering asthma flare-ups. Identify and avoid asthma triggers. A number of outdoor allergens and irritants ? ranging from pollen and mold to cold air and air pollution ? can trigger asthma attacks. Find out what causes or worsens your asthma, and take steps to avoid those triggers. Know your asthma triggers and minimize contact with them. Monitor your breathing. You may learn to recognize warning signs of an impending attack, such as slight coughing, wheezing or shortness of breath. But because your lung function may decrease before you notice any signs or symptoms, regularly measure and record your peak airflow with a home peak flow meter. Take your medication as prescribed. Just because your asthma seems to be improving, don't change anything without first talking to your doctor. It's a good idea to bring your medications with you to each doctor visit, so your doctor can double-check that you're using your medications correctly and taking the right dose.?If your child seems to have asthma that's triggered by allergies, the doctor may want to do allergy skin testing. During a skin test, the skin is pricked with extracts of common allergy-causing substances, such as animal dander, mold or dust mites, and observed for signs of an allergic reaction
