When Do You Use Your Nebulizer And Often

When Do You Use Your Nebulizer And Often

Do you have a nebulizer? If so how often do you use it?

A MyCOPDTeam Member said:

I use mine for times for my Albuterol, and twice a day for my Budesonide. And I have 1 Inhaler in the AM

It depends on what med you're nebulizing and what was prescribed. Albuterol is usually to be nebulized at four hour intervals, or up to four times a day. Other meds are meant to be nebulized just once a day. So read your prescription and follow that. If you don't need it that often don't use it that often.

Yes I have a nebulizer and I use it 4 times per day. I seem to have some mucous plugging and Dr says this will help to clear.

My nebulizer contains both Albuterol and Ipratropium Bromide. Doctor said both have to be ingested for lungs to benefit.

Use mine if I get a tight feeling, which usually happens after the day, at dinner hour!
