About LEVOLIN 0.31MG RESPULES

LEVOLIN 0.31MG RESPULES belongs to the class of 'bronchodilators' primarily used to treat asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). LEVOLIN 0.31MG RESPULES 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).

LEVOLIN 0.31MG RESPULES contains 'Levosalbutamol,' which is also known as levalbuterol. Levosalbutamol is a β₂ adrenergic receptor agonist that relaxes the muscles in the airways and increases airflow to the lungs. LEVOLIN 0.31MG RESPULES makes breathing easier by widening the airways.

LEVOLIN 0.31MG RESPULES is available in oral tablet, oral syrup, inhaler, respules, transpules, and rotacap. Your doctor will advise on how often you take LEVOLIN 0.31MG RESPULES based on your medical condition. The common side effects of LEVOLIN 0.31MG RESPULES 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 LEVOLIN 0.31MG RESPULES do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, please seek medical help.

Please check with your doctor if you are pregnant, currently breastfeeding, or taking any other prescribed or non-prescribed medicines.
