What is cromolyn?

Intal 800 mcg/Actuation Aerosol Inhaler
Drug Name: CROMOLYN AEROSOL - INHALATION
Other Brand Names: Intal
Uses: This medication is used to prevent symptoms (wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. It is generally used with other medications by patients who have symptoms at least twice weekly (mild persistent asthma). It is also used to prevent wheezing and shortness of breath caused by exercise, cold/dry/polluted air, or allergens such as pollen. Controlling breathing problems may decrease time lost from work or school. If you use this medication you may not need to use other asthma drugs (such as corticosteroids) as often. Cromolyn belongs to a class of medications called mast cell stabilizers. It works by preventing release of certain natural chemicals (such as histamines) that may cause swelling of the airways and breathing problems. This medication must be used regularly to prevent asthma symptoms. It does not work immediately and should not be used to relieve sudden asthma attacks. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler as prescribed.
