Description of Combivent UDV

Combivent UDV contains 2 active ingredients for treating the symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) such as wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and tightness in your chest. Ipratropium Bromide is called an anticholinergic oral inhalation drug while Salbutamol Sulfate is a beta agonist that works faster than Ipratropium Bromide. Both are bronchodilators but they each work a little differently to help you breathe. Combivent UDV is designed for use with a nebulizer that delivers the medicine to your lungs via a mask or mouthpiece.

How Each Bronchodilator Helps You Breathe Easier

When inhaled as directed, Ipratropium Bromide will bind to specific receptors in your airway to block the activity of acetylcholine on your bronchi. Acetylcholine is a chemical messenger that can cause muscles that surround your airways to contract so Combivent UDV helps block that action to relax the airways and make breathing easier.

Salbutamol Sulfate is a beta agonist that works by stimulating beta receptors in your body, including the muscles that surround your airways. This stimulation results in the relaxation of muscles around your airways in order to open them up and allow a better air supply to your lungs. There is no cure for COPD, but Combivent UDV can act to help restore your breathing.

More About Chronic Bronchitis and Emphysema

COPD actually involves 2 conditions, chronic bronchitis and emphysema, that greatly affect your ability to breathe easy. Chronic bronchitis is a persistent inflammatory lung condition that causes swelling and irritation in your respiratory passages with an increase in mucus production. The inflammation will cause scarring over time and the excess mucus will make the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. The main symptoms are a productive cough with reduced air flow.

Emphysema is the decrease in lung function due to damaged and destroyed air sacs so your lungs have an increasingly hard time getting oxygen to your bloodstream. This chronic respiratory disease takes years to develop and is mainly caused by the irritation of cigarette smoke. You experience a shortness of breath and cannot exhale easily.

Before Combivent UDV is Prescribed

Ask your doctor about the safety of using Combivent UDV if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including alternative medicine and naturopathic therapies. All meds should be stored safely out of children’s reach and never share any drugs with others.

Combivent UDV Proper Use and Recommendations

Do not drive, work with tools or machinery, or attempt any activity that may be unsafe until you know how your body reacts to Combivent UDV. Monitor blood glucose levels as the contents of Combivent UDV can alter your levels. Tell medical or dental staff you use Combivent UDV before undergoing any procedures that require an anesthetic. See your doctor right away if your breathing worsens or Combivent UDV is not acting quickly enough.
