Use Of Salbutamol

Use Of Salbutamol

How often should you take it COPD, own Dr says 2-3 times a week, i need daily, am i doing something wrong? X

A MyCOPDTeam Member said:

Salbutamol, like albuterol and all its cousins, is a rescue medication and is t usually prescribed as needed, with a maximum dosage of no more than two puffs four times a day. You're not doing anything wrong, but you are using it more than it was prescribed. I would talk with the doc about this. If this is the only med you're taking, you may need to start a maintenance med as well. If you're not seeing a pulmonologist, you need to see one. You need to be seeing a doc who understands the medications available and prescribes ones that are right for you.
