Salbutamol Tab 4mg (SOLBEN)-100
It is used as bronchodilator in the management of reversible airways obstruction, as in asthma and in some patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Dosage and Administration:
2 to 4mg three or four times daily; some patients may require doses of up to 8mg three or four times daily, but such increased doses are unlikely to be tolerated or to provide much extra benefit. Elderly patients should be given the lower doses intially.
Salbutamol and other beta agonists should be given with caution in hyperthyroidism, myocardial insufficiency arrhythmias, susceptibility to QT-interval prolongation, hypertension and diabetes mellitus (especially on intravenous administration —-blood glucose should be monitored since ketoacidosis has been reported).
