Bricanyl Inhaler for Asthma & Breathing Problems

Asthma and Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are breathing conditions that primarily affect the lungs and can cause a range of breathing difficulties. Asthma often occurs after exposure to a trigger, however, it can happen randomly. Triggers may include common allergies to pollen or animal dander, infections, environmental changes or from exercise.

This inhaler contains Terbutaline sulphate, a member of the beta-agonist class of drugs. This inhaler is used to relieve the symptoms of bronchitis and asthma, e.g., chest tightness and breathing difficulty. It is a prescription drug and should be used after consulting the doctor.

What is a Bricanyl Inhaler and how does it work?

The active agent in this inhaler is terbutaline sulphate, a beta-2 agonist. This drug works by opening the airways by relaxing the muscles involved in respiration. This inhaler can be used prophylactically before the exercise to open the airways. It is, however, a reliever inhaler and should normally be used when required.
