DuoNeb Inhalation Solution
If you have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis, you may benefit from an inhaled drug called DuoNeb® (ipratropium and albuterol solution). DuoNeb contains two different medications that work together to keep the airways open. It is actually a liquid form of Atrovent® that is used in a nebulizer.
DuoNeb is typically used four times a day. If necessary, your healthcare provider may recommend using it more frequently. To use this medication, you will need to purchase or rent a nebulizer.
