Xopenex Inhl

Xopenex® (levalbuterol hydrochloride) is a medication used to treat or prevent airway spasms (bronchospasms), which can occur in people who have asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This prescription medication can be taken in two ways: using the Xopenex inhaler (Xopenex inhl) or a nebulizer, a device that changes liquid medications into fine droplets that are inhaled into the lungs.
Although most people tolerate this medication well, it is not suitable for everyone. Before starting treatment with the Xopenex inhaler, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you may have and any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements). Possible side effects may include nervousness, viral infections, or an irritated or runny nose.
Xopenex works by causing the muscles around the airways to relax, which opens up the airways and allows more air to get into and through the lungs. Xopenex also has some effects on decreasing the activity of mast cells in the lungs, which play an important role in inflammation and allergic reactions. In clinical studies, Xopenex inhalers and nebulizers started working within 10 to 17 minutes, and the effects lasted for five to six hours on average.
