is Combivent inhaler for children as young as four?
My friend was prescribed by his pediatrician Combivent inhaler for the use of a bronchial infection for his four year old son (with the use of antibiotics as well). From what I know its used to treat patients with COPD. Is this a good medication to give a four year old?

  Yes, it's fine to give to a 4 year old, but should be supervised by an adult. Use as the physician instructed.

There is only one standard dose of Combivent® (ipratropium and albuterol inhaler), regardless of your weight, age, or other medical conditions.

Combivent is a combination of Albuterol and Ipatropium to relieve bronchospasm in asthma patients. With COPD patients that have reversible symptoms, it can be used for emphysema or bronchitis.

  Mostly check the heart rate before and after the treatment. And to be sure the patient is taking the treatment correctly. Also teaching about how to clean the nebulizer.

  Since the medication doesn't contain alcohol, it shouldn't affect a breathalyzer at all. Things such as mouthwash and complications from diabetes are much more likely to cause problems in that area.

  Combivent is actually the combination of ventolin and atrovent. There is not a replacement for combivent unless you buy ventolin and atrovent seperately. I am not sure what container you are talking about.... but combivent comes in the same forms as ventolin... liquid and inhaler.

  Duoneb by definition is a nebulizer. However, the medication in Duoneb (Albuterol and Atrovent) are indeed fast acting medications. Combivent, which contains the same medications as Duoneb, only in a inhaler (MDI). Yes, Combivent is considered to be a rescue inhaler. Don't forget to use your spacer with your inhaler.

Does anyone else have side effects on Combivent?
It makes me very nervous and shakey if taken as ordered by the doctor. It also causes me to be unable to relax and go to sleep.

  It is making you shaky due to the albuterol in it . Any medication that had albuterol in some form will due that . especially if your not that severe so you don't take alot of it .I have severe asthma and I have alot of medicine that has albuterol in it and if i have to use more then usual it does this . Makes you feel like you had 2 pots of coffee .Speaking of caffeine if you drinking caffinated sodas or coffee i would wait till you don't feel like this cause caffeine will make it worse . Here is some in for on Combivent so you can see I m also going to include some information on albuteral too since that is one of the main ingredients in to . When using any inhaled medication rinse your mouth out after wards to avoid thrush also . Good luck take care and I hope this helps .

Can Combivent inhaler make your throat sore?

  Inhaler use can lead to throat problems, which is why they generally recommend rinsing your mouth out after each use.

If rinsing does not help, seek medical advice.
