What is this drug?
Duolin inhaler, as the same suggests, is an inhaler for reversible narrowing or constriction of the air passages associated with obstructive diseases like asthma, COPD, emphysema or bronchitis.
Classification and Mechanism of Action
Duolin contains two generics – Salbutamol sulphate and Ipratropium bromide. Salbutamol is a beta 2-adrenergic agent and it acts on the smooth muscles of the walls of the airway and relaxes them. Ipratropium is an anticholinergic and it antagonizes the action of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine causes spasm of the airway by interacting with the muscarinic receptors on the wall. Both medicines have synergic action and they enhance the effect of each other.
