Description of Cromolyn
Cromolyn is a medication with the generic name Sodium Cromoglycate. It belongs to a group of drugs known as mast cell stabilizers. Cromolyn is available in four forms, such as eye drops, inhalers, oral solution and nasal spray. The drug is a prescription medication, so you need to consult your doctor before you buy Cromolyn online.
Indications & Dosage of Cromolyn
Cromolyn is used to treat symptoms of asthma and allergies. The medication is useful to prevent an asthma attack. However, Cromolyn may not prove useful to stop an asthma attack which has already started.
The mast cells in the body release specific chemicals in response to allergens and certain conditions. These chemicals cause allergy symptoms. The drug works by stabilizing the mast cells and preventing release of chemicals in response to allergens and different conditions.
Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the dosage. The dosage depends on several factors such as patient’s age, the form of medication prescribed for treatment, the medical condition being treated, severity of the condition, and other medications the patient is using.
The recommended dose of Cromolyn inhaler for the treatment of asthma is 2 inhalations, 4 times daily. To prevent a predictable asthma attack, you need to take two inhalations, 10-15 minutes prior to an anticipated asthma attack.
