Product Overview

Ipratropium Bromide / Albuterol (Salbutamol Sulfate) combines two active ingredients: ipratropium bromide and albuterol sulfate, used to manage respiratory conditions such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Ipratropium bromide, a short-acting anticholinergic, helps to relax and open the air passages to the lungs, making breathing easier. Albuterol sulfate, a short-acting beta-2 adrenergic agonist, provides quick relief by relaxing the airway muscles and increasing airflow to the lungs.

This medication is available in two forms: a metered-dose inhaler containing 18 mcg ipratropium bromide and 90 mcg albuterol sulfate per actuation and a nebulizer solution with 0.5 mg ipratropium bromide and 2.5 mg albuterol sulfate per 3 ml. Adults should use two puffs four times daily for inhalation aerosol, at most 12 puffs in 24 hours. For the nebulizer solution, adults should use one 3 ml vial four times daily, with up to 2 additional treatments per day if necessary. A doctor should determine usage and dosage for children.

Common side effects include cough, headache, dry mouth, nausea, and dizziness. Serious side effects may include paradoxical bronchospasm, severe allergic reactions, and cardiovascular effects. Precautions include informing your doctor of any allergies, current medications, and medical history, particularly related to glaucoma, urinary retention, cardiovascular disorders, and pregnancy. If a dose is missed, take it as soon as remembered, but do not double it. In case of an overdose of the medication, seek immediate medical assistance. Store the medication in its original container at room temperature, away from light and moisture, and keep it out of reach of children and pets. Always follow your healthcare provider’s instructions and consult them with any concerns.

  • Your doctor may suggest that you take additional doses of Ipratropium and Albuterol if you experience wheezing, shortness of breath, or chest tightness. 
  • Call your doctor or healthcare provider at once if your symptoms worsen, if you feel like this inhalation is no longer able to control your symptoms, or if you have to take extra doses more frequently. 
  • If you are using it in inhaler form, the medication will come in cartridges. Each cartridge is designed to provide 120 inhalations of Ipratropium and Albuterol, which will last for a month if you use one inhalation four times daily. 
  • After you use all the inhalation doses, the inhaler will lock and not release any more medication.
  • You should periodically check the dose indicator on the side of the inhaler to see how much Ipratropium or Albuterol is left. 
  • When the indicator enters the red area, the cartridge contains enough medication for a week, and you should get your prescription refilled so you do not run out of medication. 
  • Be careful not to get Ipratropium / Albuterol inhalation into your eyes as you can develop narrow-angle glaucoma, which may further cause loss of vision. If you already have narrow-angle glaucoma, getting this medication into your eyes may worsen your condition. If you experience symptoms such as widened pupils, blurred vision, eye pain or redness, and vision changes such as seeing unusual colors or halos around lights, immediately call your doctor.  
  • Before using this inhaler for the first time, carefully read and follow the directions for use given in the patient information leaflet and consult your doctor if you need help understanding any part of it.
  • You can seek advice from your doctor, healthcare provider, or respiratory therapist and ask them to show you how to use the inhaler and practice using it while s/he watches.

  • You should put it together before using it for the first time. Take the inhaler out of the box with the orange cap on it closed. 
  • Gently press the safety catch and pull off the clear base on the inhaler. Do not touch the piercing element inside the base. 
  • Remove the cartridge from the box and insert the narrow end into the inhaler. Press it against a hard surface to ensure it is inserted correctly. Replace the clear plastic base.
  • Hold the Ipratropium / Albuterol inhaler upright with the orange cap closed and turn the clear base towards the direction of the white indicator until it clicks.
  • Now flip the orange cap to open it fully. Point the Ipratropium / Albuterol inhaler towards the ground. 
  • Carefully press the dose release button and close the orange cap. 
  • Repeat these steps until you see a spray coming out of the inhaler, typically four to six times, then repeat these steps three more times. 
  • Your inhaler is now primed, and you may use it. You only need to prime it again if you haven’t used it for more than three days. 
  • Discard the inhaler after three months of putting it together. 

Follow these instructions to prepare your inhaler for use:

  • Hold the Ipratropium / Albuterol inhaler upright with the orange cap closed and turn the clear base towards the direction of the white indicator until it clicks.

  • Now place the Ipratropium / Albuterol mouthpiece in your mouth and close your lips around it. Do not cover the air vents of the inhaler with your lips. 
  • Point the Ipratropium / Albuterol inhaler toward the back of your throat and breathe in deeply and slowly. 
  • While you are breathing in, gently press the dose release button of the inhaler and continue to breathe in completely while the medication is released into your mouth.
  • Hold your breath for as long as comfortably you can. 
  • Take the inhaler out of your mouth and replace the cap. Close the cap until you are ready to use it again.

  • Remove one vial of Ipratropium / Albuterol solution from the foil pouch, twist off the top of the vial, and squeeze all the liquid into the nebulizer’s reservoir. 
  • Connect the reservoir to the face mask or mouthpiece. 
  • Connect the reservoir to the compressor and put the mouthpiece or face mask in your mouth. 
  • Turn on the compressor while seated comfortably in an upright position.
  • Breathe in calmly and evenly through your mouth for about 5-15 minutes until a mist stops forming in the nebulizer’s chamber.  
  • Clean your nebulizer or inhaler regularly. Carefully read and follow the directions for use in the patient information leaflet, and ask your pharmacist or physician if you have any queries or concerns regarding the medication use.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Ipratropium / Albuterol (Salbutamol) improve symptoms in patients with COPD? 

Ipratropium and Albuterol (salbutamol) work together to enhance breathing for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients. Albuterol acts quickly as a bronchodilator, relaxing muscles in the airways to improve airflow, while Ipratropium provides longer-lasting relief by preventing the muscles around the airways from tightening. This combination therapy of Albuterol and Ipratropium is more effective than using either medication alone, significantly reducing symptoms like wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness.

Serious side effects of Ipratropium / Albuterol (Salbutamol) include paradoxical bronchospasm (sudden worsening of breathing), severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), cardiovascular effects (such as significant changes in blood pressure or heart rhythm), worsening of narrow-angle glaucoma, acute urinary retention, and hypokalemia (low potassium levels). If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention promptly. Regular monitoring & consultation with your healthcare provider are crucial to manage and mitigate these risks.

How should I store Ipratropium / Albuterol (Salbutamol) to maintain its efficacy?

What to do in case of a missed dose and overdose of Ipratropium / Albuterol (Salbutamol)?
