Terbutaline is a medication used to prevent and treat symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness associated with conditions like asthma, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema. It belongs to a class of drugs known as beta agonists. The primary mechanism of action involves relaxing and opening the airways, facilitating easier breathing for individuals with respiratory conditions.

Uses and Dosage

Follow your doctor’s instructions when taking this medication orally, typically as a single dose as needed. If symptoms persist after the initial dose, your doctor may advise additional doses, but do not exceed 6 doses within a 24-hour period.

Before usage, remove the cover and prepare the dose by holding the inhaler upright with the grip facing downward. Rotate the blue grip fully in one direction and then back to its original position, listening for a click, indicating the inhaler is ready for use. Position the mouthpiece near your mouth, exhale comfortably, avoiding exhaling into the inhaler. Place the mouthpiece between your teeth, close your lips, and inhale forcefully and deeply through your mouth. It’s normal not to taste or feel the drug. Remove the inhaler before exhaling, and replace the cover after each use. To reduce side effects, rinse your mouth with water after inhaler use.

If you drop, shake, or exhale into the loaded inhaler accidentally, you’ll lose the dose and must reload before use. Do not use a damaged inhaler or if the mouthpiece is detached.

When using multiple inhalers simultaneously, wait at least 1 minute between each medication. Clean the mouthpiece’s exterior weekly with a dry tissue—avoid using water or other liquids, as they may affect the inhaler’s functionality.

Dosage is determined by your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not exceed the prescribed dose or frequency. Monitor the number of inhalations per device and discard it after reaching the specified limit on the manufacturer’s package.

Differentiate between daily use inhalers (controller drugs) and those for sudden worsened breathing (quick-relief drugs).

Consult your doctor about actions to take in case of new or worsening symptoms, such as cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, increased sputum, or changes in peak flow meter readings. Be aware of when to self-treat sudden breathing issues and when immediate medical assistance is necessary.

Inform your doctor if your symptoms persist or worsen.
