My Daughter (away @ college) had Mono in May.Felt better after 6 weeks. She gets brinchitis a few times a year. The campus DR told her she has it again but this time suspects walking pnemonia with it. Because of the recent Mono no antibiotics were perscribed.
Any suggested as to which inhaler would work best? also, would a nebulizer - Ipratropium Bromide 0.5mg and Albuterol Sulfate 3.0mg help?
Finally what is the difference in inhalers Albuterol, Alvesco. Combivent?
A mentioned above treatment for bronchitis is usually symptomatic. Albuterol is a short-acting β2-adrenergic receptor agonist and is used to treat episodes of active wheezing. Alvesco helps to reduce lung inflammation. Combivent is a steroid inhaler which helps to reduce the attacks of bronchospasm or wheezing.
