6 Common Nebulizer Medicines
So, your doctor wants you to take breathing treatments. Or, perhaps you take breathing treatments already. Here are the 6 most common nebulized medicines used for COPD.
Normal saline (sodium chloride)
It's a solution that contains a 0.9% mixture of sodium chloride, or salt. The salt is needed to match the salt content of your body. Another name for it is saltwater. It's just saltwater. It's not prescribed on its own. But, about 0.3cc of normal saline is premixed with solutions of respiratory medicine to make breathing treatments last long enough to be effective. The solutions are stored in plastic amps. These amps have easy to remove twist-tops.
So, that said, here are your respiratory medicines.
Do you live with any sleep disorders (eg. insomnia, RLS, sleep apnea) in addition to COPD?
