Combivent Inhaler Information
Available by prescription only, Combivent® (ipratropium and albuterol inhaler) is approved to treat the symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It comes in a metered-dose inhaler and is generally used four times a day. Although most people tolerate this product well, side effects are possible, and may include bronchitis, headaches, and upper respiratory tract infections.
Because this inhaler is not right for everyone, before using Combivent, your healthcare provider needs information on any other conditions you have, such as glaucoma, high blood pressure, and seizures, as well as any other drugs you are taking, including supplements and nonprescription products.
