Tilade Inhaler contains Nedocromil Sodium, an anti-inflammatory drug prescribed as a preventive management for those with asthma. This is not a bronchodilator, antihistamine, or corticosteroid medication but is considered a mast cell stabilizer that will prevent the symptoms of asthma, including wheezing and shortness of breath that can occur. Tilade Inhaler will not stop an asthma attack in progress, so it’s important to use as recommended and keep a rescue inhaler with you for fast relief as needed.
An asthma attack usually occurs when your immune system detects a threat, this is likely through contact with an allergen. When inhaled as directed, Nedocromil Sodium will work to block mast cell degranulation in order to stop the release of mediators, including histamine and prostaglandins, that perpetrate inflammation in your airways. There is no cure for asthma, but Tilade Inhaler can help to decrease the symptoms of wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath so you can carry on with your daily tasks in comfort.
The majority of those with asthma also have allergies that can trigger an attack. Allergens vary from person to person and can include smoke, changes in weather, pets, and dust mites. When you are exposed to an allergen, antibodies in your blood are signaled and this can create inflammation in your airways that contribute to your symptoms. Your immune system also sends chemicals that cause inflammation and your airways can become thick with a mucus build-up that can compromise your breathing.
Ask your doctor about any risks to using Tilade Inhaler while you are pregnant, if you become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions and allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently use or take, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements. This helps your doctor determine if Tilade Inhaler is safe for you.
Tilade Inhaler will not provide relief from an asthma attack in progress so make sure you always have access to a fast-acting bronchodilator. Be patient as you may not experience the full benefits of Tilade Inhaler for a few weeks. Until you know how Tilade Inhaler will affect you, use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing any task that may be considered unsafe.
