Actolin uses and description

Sort by popularity
Actolin - Beta adrenoagonists with a predominant effect on beta2-adrenergic receptors (localized, particularly in the bronchi, myometrium, blood vessels).

This medication prevents and reduces or eliminates bronchospasm, reduces the resistance in the airways, increases the vital capacity. It prevents the release of histamine, slow reacting substance from mast cells and factors chemotaxis of neutrophils. Compared with other drugs of this group has a less pronounced positive chrono-and inotropic effect on myocardium. It widen of coronary arteries, practically does not reduce blood pressure. Has tocolytic effect, lowering the tone and the contractile activity of the myometrium.

Actolin (INN) or albuterol (USAN), a moderately selective beta(2)-receptor agonist similar in structure to terbutaline, is widely used as a bronchodilator to manage asthma and other chronic obstructive airway diseases. The R-isomer, levalbuterol, is responsible for bronchodilation while the S-isomer increases bronchial reactivity. The R-enantiomer is sold in its pure form as Levalbuterol. The manufacturer of levalbuterol, Sepracor, has implied (although not directly claimed) that the presence of only the R-enantiomer produces fewer side-effects.

Actolin is used to treat asthma. Actolin is known as a "bronchodilator", which literally means "open airways". Actolin helps to treat your asthma or chest illnesses by relaxing the airways in your lungs. Actolin relieves chest tightness, wheezing and cough so that you can breathe more easily.

Elderly: Initially, 2 mg 3-4 times daily. Inhalation Acute bronchospasm

Adult: As aerosol: 100 or 200 mcg (1-2 puffs) 3-4 times daily. 2 puffs may be given prior to exertion to prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm. Inhalation Acute severe asthma

Adult: As MDI: 4-6 inhalations may be given every 10-20 min via a large volume spacer. Parenteral Severe bronchospasm

Adult: 250 mcg (as a solution of 50 mcg/ml) via IV inj, or via IV infusion of a solution containing 5 mg in 500 ml at a rate of 3-20 mcg/min adjusted according to patient\'s need.

Maintain rate for 1 hr after contractions have stopped, then gradually reduce rate by 50% at intervals of 6 hr. Usual dose: 10-45 mcg/min. Avoid prolonged therapy. Inhalation Severe bronchospasm

Adult: Via nebuliser: 2.5-5 mg, may repeat up to 4 times daily. Alternatively, may be given continuously at a rate of 1-2 mg/hr. Patients with asthma may require supplemental oxygen.

Actolin or albuterol is a short-acting β2-adrenergic receptor agonist used for the relief of bronchospasm in conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It is marketed by GlaxoSmithKline as Ventolin, Aerolin or Ventorlin depending on the market; by Cipla as Asthalin; by Schering-Plough as Proventil and by Teva as ProAir.

Actolin was the first selective Β2-receptor agonist to be marketed, in 1968. It was first sold by Allen & Hanburys under the brand name Ventolin. The drug was an instant success, and has been used for the treatment of asthma ever since.

Actolin sulfate is usually given by the inhaled route for direct effect on bronchial smooth muscle. This is usually achieved through a metered dose inhaler (MDI), nebuliser or other proprietary delivery devices (e.g. Rotahaler or Autohaler). In these forms of delivery, the maximal effect of Actolin can take place within five to twenty minutes of dosing, though some relief is immediately seen. Actolin can also be given orally as an inhalant or intravenously.
