What is the interaction between salbutamol guaifenesin and glimiperide? Any adverse effect? ## My findings state that there are potentially unsafe interactions that apply to Albuterol (Salbutamol) & Glimepiride. Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of: "Albuterol may reduce the effects of glimepiride in lowering your blood sugar. Talk with your doctor before using these medications together. You may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring of your blood sugar if you have been using glimepiride and are starting treatment with albuterol. Likewise, if your glimepiride dose has been adjusted during treatment with albuterol, the dose may need to be readjusted after you discontinue albuterol. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you...

About The Salbutamol Guaifenesin Ventolin That I Buy Last 2009 And It Was Expired June 2011 Is Their Any Side Effect If Accidentally Take Because This
1 Reply RSS
the ventolin guaifenesin salbutamol that i buy last 2009, is already expired last June 2011. is their any effect for me because accidentally I take because I dont have any new one. ## These don't get dangerous once expired, from the information that I've found, they just tend to lose effectiveness, so they may not work as well. Learn more Ventolindetails here. Learn more Guaifenesin details here. Learn more Salbutamoldetails here. If you still need them, I suggest disposing of these ones now and picking up a new supply, to ensure their effectiveness the next time you need to take them. Are there any other questions or comments?

Is There A Replacement For Ventide Inhaler
6 Replies RSS
have been using ventide inhaler for about 22 years. Thishas now been discontinued in Pakistan. Is there a replacement for ventide. If not what is the best course to follow. ## the pharma company have a replacement for ventide but its not out in the market yet. ## Ventide contained the active ingredients Beclamethasone and Salbutamol. I'm afraid since it wasn't available in the U.S. that our information on it is very limited, I can't even find details on why it was discontinued. Also, since you are in Pakistan, I have no way of knowing what alternatives are available for you. Have you tried asking your doctor what else you can use that is comparable? ## Yes. there is an alternative for Ventide Inhaler. It is XALTIDE Inhaler. it contains same formula and it is easily available...
