Personalized PocketPacks

We sort your medication into clearly labeled, individual packs so you can be sure you're taking the right dose at the right time.

Bricanyl Turbuhaler Dosage

The usual recommended adult dose of terbutaline is one inhalation when required. This is usually adequate to relieve symptoms. However, if a second dose is needed, it should be taken preferably 5 minutes after the first dose. If a second dose does not make it easier for you to breathe, seek immediate medical help.

The effects of Bricanyl Turbuhaler (Terbutaline-inh) should last 4 to 7 hours. If a previously effective dose fails to provide the usual relief, or if the effects of a dose last less than 3 hours, contact a doctor immediately, as this is a sign that your condition is getting worse. If you need to use terbutaline every day to relieve symptoms, consult your doctor. You should not need more than 6 inhalations in a 24-hour period.

Follow the package instructions carefully for proper use of your inhalation device. The amount of medication dispensed from the inhaler is very small, so you may not be able to taste the powder after inhalation. However, you can still be confident that the dose has been inhaled if you have followed the package instructions. Avoid exhaling into the inhalation device and always put the cover back on after use.

The terbutaline inhaler has a dose indicator. When a red mark first appears in the little window underneath the mouthpiece, it means that there are approximately 20 doses left and you should obtain your next inhaler. Clean the outside of the mouthpiece once a week with a dry tissue. Never use water or any other fluid. If fluid enters the inhaler, it may not work properly.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to use Bricanyl Turbuhaler (Terbutaline-inh) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take more than prescribed without consulting your doctor. Bricanyl Turbuhaler (Terbutaline-inh) is usually used only when required to relieve symptoms.

Store Bricanyl Turbuhaler (Terbutaline-inh) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.
