I have asthma, back there in India I used to use "Duolin" inhaler of Cipla company. Now I have moved to Italy and I have brought one extra Duolin inhaler with me, but after this is finished, I will need to buy something else of the same composition:
"Levosulbutamol + ipratropium bromide"
I needed to know, will I need to see a doctor here and get a prescription to buy my inhaler or I can just go to a medicine shop and can buy it ? Please help ! And if possible also tell me any brand that is available in Italy with the composition same as that of Duolin of Cipla, that is:
Each actuation delivers Ipratropium Bromide IP equivalent to Ipratropium Bromide anhydrous ... 20 mcg,
Levosulbutamol Tartrate equivalent to Levosulbutamol ... 50 mcg,
suspended in propellant-227 ea ... q.s
Hi, you may need a doctors prescription to buy the inhaler. It is difficult to suggest brands which are available in Italy. You could ask the pharmacist to help you decipher the composition on the labels of inhalers, he may be able to guide you. Take care. Regards.
