About Duolin Inhaler

Duolin Inhaler is a combination medication primarily used to treat or prevent symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) likes shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing (whistling sound while breathing). COPD is a group of lung diseases with emphysema (shortness of breath due to damaged air sac) and chronic bronchitis (inflammation and narrowing of the lining of airways or bronchial tubes).

Duolin Inhaler is a combination of two bronchodilators, namely: Levosalbutamol and Ipratropium bromide. Duolin Inhaler belongs to the class of bronchodilators that works by relaxing muscles and widening the airways of the lungs. Thereby, it allows us to breathe easily.

Duolin Inhaler is available in the form of rotacaps, inhaler and resicaps. Duolin Inhaler is for inhalation only. Duolin Inhaler in rotacaps and resicaps should be taken as advised by your doctor.
