About Durasalyn Syrup

Durasalyn Syrup is used to treat asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Durasalyn Syrup helps to relieve symptoms like coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. Asthma is a breathing problem in which airways narrow, swell and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty breathing. COPD is a group of lung diseases with emphysema (shortness of breath) and chronic bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes).

Durasalyn Syrup contains 'Salbutamol,' which is a β₂ adrenergic receptor agonist. It relaxes the muscles in the airways and increases airflow to the lungs. Durasalyn Syrup makes breathing easier by widening the airways.

Your doctor will advise on how often you take Durasalyn Syrup based on your medical condition. The common side effects of Durasalyn Syrup include nausea, vomiting, restlessness, tremor (shakiness), headache, muscle tightness, dryness or soreness of the throat, dizziness, sleepiness, palpitations (irregular heartbeat), nasal congestion (stuffy nose), cough, and increased heart rate. Most of these side effects of Durasalyn Syrup do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, please seek medical help.

Brief your medical history if you have any heart, liver or kidney diseases, hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), stomach ulcer, seizure (fits), high blood pressure and diabetes before taking Durasalyn Syrup . Bronchodilators like Durasalyn Syrup can cause a rise in blood sugar levels. Hence, diabetic patients should monitor their blood glucose levels and use this medicine only with a doctor's advice. Bronchodilators also cause hypokalaemia (low potassium levels in the blood) in some patients, leading to severe heart diseases, so Durasalyn Syrup should be cautiously administered. Please check with your doctor if you are pregnant, currently breastfeeding, or taking any other prescribed or non-prescribed medicines. Avoid drinking alcohol while taking Durasalyn Syrup as it can worsen your sleepiness. Try not to stop taking this medicine of your own.

  • Eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly to strengthen your breathing muscles and boost your immune system.

  • Learning breathing exercises will help you move more air in and out of your lungs.

Special Advise

  • Monitor your blood glucose levels regularly since bronchodilators can raise blood sugar levels.

  • Keep a check on your heart condition (if you are heart disease patient) with an ECG if you notice any rapid heartbeat and blood pressure changes.

  • Undergoing a blood examination for your potassium levels in the blood will help rule out the possibility of hypokalaemia.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Asthma: A breathing problem in which airways narrow and swell and may produce extra mucus, which may lead to breathing difficulty and trigger cough, a whistling sound (wheezing) when you breathe out and shortness of breath.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): It is a group of progressive lung diseases, most commonly emphysema (shortness of breath) and chronic bronchitis (inflammation and irritation of bronchial tubes).
