ProAir HFA (albuterol sulfate)

What is ProAir HFA (albuterol sulfate) used for? ## Albuterol inhalers are used to respiratory problems, such as asthma, and COPD. It helps widen the airways to make breathing easier. Its typical side effects may include dizziness, dry mouth, headache, elevated heart rate, and elevated blood pressure. ## Has anyone noticed a difference between ProAir name brand & Albuterol generic both made by Teva? The generic doesn't seem to work as well for me.

pill es 255

muscle relaxer ## Is that the exact marking on the tablet? What is the shape and color? I tried playing around with the imprint, but still can't find anything close to this. Was it found in the U.S. or elsewhere? ## I located a match to pills reading 255 on them. One has M 255 on it, it's Albuterol 2 mg. From what I was able to gather Albuterol is a bronchodilator that helps relax muscles in the airways and helps increase air flow to the lungs. To learn more click on the link below... Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## Verwon, If I'm looking at the same pill as the OP, it is oblong in shape, pressed powder, not capsule. Green on top with E | S, white on bottom with 255 and found in the US. ## I have an oblong pill white and g...

false positive drug test ventolin inhalers

I used ventolin inhaler and I get drug tested every month. I've been clean for almost three years. Usually I just use the albuterol inhaler and never tested positive, then I used the one with ventolin and I tested positive three times in a row and the Dr told me I was lying because she took three tests. I told her to send it off, she did and I got my negative paper yesterday, so it does cause false positives. ## what did you test positive for because im having problems with my asthma and i take the ventolin and im also in drug court fighting for my kids in desperate because i will lose my kids if i dont get to the botton of it ## Not sure if you will even see this. I must inform you though, since you already went through having your doctor call you a liar, and you were able to prove...

Firstly, I am 150lbs overweight. I use albuterol solution in a nebulizer everyday. I also have lung/heart disease so bad my pro air albuterol inhaler is a PRN rx. I also am diabetic and take glipzide, victoza and metformin and I have hypothyroidism. Is there any way I could ever pass an ETG alcohol test? I failed my very first test already. ## Anything with alcohol which they never tell you. Albuterol , glycol , methanol and ethanol. Are all forms of alcohol. Also soaps have glycol and pain patches. As alcohol is the delivery component. Icy/ hot and so on. Lip balm and lotions. The list goes on. As far as the diabetes is concerned. Yes it can give a positive. As long as you surger is heigher than 300. Ketoacidosis releases keto acids into your urine. Which can give a positive etg readin...

false positive for albuterol advair and atrovent

I have tested positive for Amph could one of this done that. ## Will Atrovent HFA 17 meg/inh or Ventolin HFA (albuterol sulfate) make me test positive for methamphetamine on a urine drug test? ## I tested positive for amphetamines. I am taking cipro senna and ventolin inhaler. Could the inhalercause this? ## I, too, am testing positive for methamphetamine while using atrovent hfa. Proventil and all my other meds never caused this; only the addition of atrovent.

Albuterol False Positive Drug Test

My fiance used abuterol for years, and I know used it as needed as prescribed by the physician, he used it well more than advised and never once had a false positive. He had severe asthma, was on two types of inhalers, two types of medicine for nebulizer plus oral medication. I know he was tested several times a month, not one positive result. ## If you want to see a false positive result, try using Albuterol (specifically Ventolin) within a 24 Hr period with a professional drug test. The fact that people do raise the question while people have had false positives such as with benzo's like oxzepam and the Dr.'s say there is no record for it to try to make it sound like Albuterol has lesser flaws to it then it does. This does not mean it will not show up as a false positive on a ...

Albuterol sulfate

inhalation solution, 2.5 mg/3 ml. ## Albuterol Sulfate is prescribed for asthma. If a patient is allergic to sulfa-based antibiotics and has a concern about a possible allergic reaction to Albuterol Sulfate, is their concern justified or not? ## If my daughter is allergic to sulfa bacterium, can she take albuterol? ## Okay, the sulfate in this case just designates the chemical salt that the medication is derived from, now there is a chance the someone may also be allergic to it, but it is very rare. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, dry throat, and wheezing. How are you all doing? Did you try this inhaler? ## Is there a pill called albuterol or one that has this in it to help COPD complaints? I heard that this may help m...

can albuterol cause a positive methamphetamine drug test

I take prescription drugs and came up recently with a positive urine test for methamphetamines. Could any of these have caused this? I take bupropion 100mg 3xday, albuterol inhaler, also due to coughing I have been taking nyquil liquid cold medicine, and oxycodone 10-325 every 6 hrs for pain. I was also taking Lyrica for fybromylagia? ## Some cold medicines and allergy medicines will show up as methamphetamine and amphetamine ## This is a complicated issue and should be addressed by a MRO. A Medical Review Officer (MRO) is a doctor trained to look at all the prescription etc... to see why something is causing a false positive for Methamphetamine. You can find an MRO in your area at their association web site I have no affiliation with the web site. My best professional guess ...

What acetylcyst 20 sol roxa is used for

I was given this for congestion in my lungs , partly from nasal congestion and COPD, would like to know about it. ## I would like to know what this is used for and the side effects ## My husband suffers COPD, lung disease. This is the best medication for him, no side effects. Now, we can't find in any pharmacy, they said that they are not manufacturing any more, because DOCTORS are prescribing more of the new medication that is currently on the market.

Only Acetylcyst doesn't have side effects, and maintain his lungs very clean. Please help we need more of this medication!! ## Acetylcysteine is used as a supplement and a pharmaceutical d...

Asmanex Twisthaler Malfunction

I am 58 years old and have a life long history of asthma & have been using the Asmanex 120 dose twisthaler successfully and gratefully for 4 years without complaint. But last night I discovered, without a doubt, that the inhaler I have been using for the past 6 weeks malfunctioned. Not only was the counter randomly going backward giving me many “additional†doses I also believe it never dispensed any medicine – not hard to miss because the powdered medication is tasteless. My first clue came when I was down to my last 5 inhalations before starting my new inhaler. I took my double night-time dose & just happened to note the counter afterward. Instead of the expected number 3 in the counter window it said 15! On two other occasions ...

albuterol false positive for methamphetamine

I go to pain management. They had tested me and said I was dirty for methamphetamine. Now they say they cant give me my meds. But I don't use meth or any drugs. It's caused by my nebulizer and my inhaler. How can i prove to the doctor that i don't use meth? ## Hi Yvonne - sorry to hear about the issues with the lab work. I believe that certain asthma medications can indeed affect drug tests. Do you see different doctors for the pain management versus asthma medication? If so then you can have your pain Dr get the medical records or proof of prescription from the other doc and they should recognize that lab results can be affected by it. Have you already tried doing that? And if so, what did they say? ## No this barley happened today when i went to my Dr. Now he says hes goin...

Albuterol gave me the shakes

After using albuterol in a nebulizer for about six applications, my body - especially my hands - were shaking uncontrollably. I refused further doses, beginning 36 hours ago. The shaking is better, but still severe. Question: how long can I expect this drug to remain in my system? ## Hello, Grammy! How are you feeling? That can be a normal side effect of this medication, as listed by the FDA. Other side effects, may possibly include dry mouth, dizziness, headache and insomnia. You weren't on it for very long, so it should only take a few days for things to settle back down. Is there anything else I can help with?

albuterol and vetprofen drug interactions

are there any bad drug interactions using these 2 medicines at the same time albuterol and vetprofen ## Hello, Merion! How are you? Who or what is taking them both? Vetprofen is a veterinary medication intended for use in animals, so the answer will depend on the type of animal. They are listed as containing the active ingredient Carprofen, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain and swelling. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach upset. Albuterol is classified by the FDA as a bronchodilator that is used to increase air flow to the lungs. Its typical side effects may possibly include headache, dizziness, dry mouth and nervousness. Albuterol actually isn't approved for use in animals.
