Brethine Drug Information
Brethine® (terbutaline sulfate) is commonly prescribed to treat either asthma or emphysema. It comes in tablet form and is generally taken three times a day. The medication works by causing muscles around the airways to relax, which opens up the airways and allows more air to get into and through the lungs to improve breathing.
Although most people tolerate this medicine well, Brethine is not right for everyone. Safety information on this drug should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before beginning treatment. This includes knowing what products could interact with Brethine and being aware of possible side effects.
