Bricanyl Turbuhaler is an inhaler containing terbutaline (a bronchodilator) and is available in 0.5% doses.
Bricanyl Turbuhaler is a medication used for the treatment of symptoms from many different lung problems. These problems include asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchitis and emphysema, all of which cause wheezing and shortness of breath. Often times, people with these conditions have a low quality of life as they tend to miss school or work frequently due to their condition.
Terbutaline (the active ingredient in a Bricanyl turbuhaler) works by expanding breathing passages to allow easier breathing. Keeping these conditions under control decreases the need to have to miss important duties (like work or school) and boosts quality of life.
Always follow directions given to you by your doctor. Directions can also be found on the prescription.
Only use the turbuhaler when you need it (when symptoms become present or if you feel they are going to become present).
