What is Bricanyl?

Bricanyl (terbutaline sulphate) 500mcg Turbohalers are dry powder reliever inhalers taken during an asthma attack to quickly and effectively relieve the symptoms of asthma and asthma attacks. This fast-acting treatment relaxes muscles in the airway to keep the airways open, easing breathing and preventing. This will relieve symptoms, such as wheezing and shortness of breath. Bricanyl reliever inhalers can also be used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Bricanyl can be used in the form of a syrup or tablets. Here at Medilico Bricanyl is presented as a dry powder Turbohaler (also referred to as a Turbuhaler).

How does Bricanyl work?

Bricanyl is classified as a bronchodilator and it works by opening the narrowed airways so that breathing becomes easier. It works on receptors in the lungs called beta 2 receptors. Terbutaline stimulates these receptors and causes the airway muscles to relax thus allowing the airways to open. The drug tends to work within 30-45 minutes and its benefits last 4-6 hours. Bricanyl is often used in combination with other asthmatic drugs for maximal benefit.

How to use Bricanyl

Bricanyl is available as a turbohaler, respules, tablets and syrup. All formulations contain the active ingredient terbutaline, which is a short-acting beta 2 agonist. Bricanyl is generally prescribed three times a day. It may be taken with or without food.

Bricanyl is generally taken using an inhaler device as this is the quickest way to relieve asthma attacks, wheezing, coughing, chest tightness or shortness of breath. The inhaler can be used before exercising or before any expected exposure to an allergen to prevent a possible attack. Tablets or syrup are prescribed for people who are unable to use inhalers. These are not quick-acting and need to be taken regularly to help keep the airways open all the time.

The recommended dose for individuals over the age of 15 is 15mg over a 24-hour period. Children between the ages of 12-15 years should not take a total dose of more than 7.5 mg per day. For children less than 12 years of age, one needs to follow the directions provided by the pharmacist or the doctor. Bricanyl should be taken exactly as prescribed by the healthcare provider. One should take the medication at the same time every day in order to derive maximum benefit from the drug.

For patients who have been prescribed other asthma medications at the same time should ensure they follow instructions provided by the healthcare provider when taking Bricanyl. Patients should speak to the healthcare provider immediately if the shortness of breath is not relieved or if the wheezing episodes persist.

What to do if you miss a dose

If you miss a dose of Bricanyl, try and take it if you remember it right away. But if you remember it late and it is close to the time of the second dose, then it is best to skip the dose that was missed. Never double the dose to catch up as this can lead to adverse reactions.

What to do if you overdose

If you suspect that an overdose of Bricanyl has occurred, then get someone to drive you immediately to the nearest emergency room or call 911. Symptoms of an overdose may include the following:

  • Dry mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Fast heart beat
  • Headache
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Seizures

Bricanyl Side Effects

Bricanyl has a few side effects, which include dizziness, drowsiness, headaches, shaking spells (tremors), nausea, dry mouth, fatigue, insomnia or an increase in blood pressure

Even though rare, some individuals may develop a pounding sensation in the chest area, chest pain, weakness or muscle cramps. These side effects do not occur in all individuals. They often occur during the initial period and then subside with time. However, if they persist then you should notify the pharmacist or your healthcare provider.

Like all medications, there is a risk of allergy to Bricanyl that may present itself in the form of difficulty in breathing, rash, itching, swelling of the lips and face, and dizziness. If these symptoms appear, stop the medication immediately and seek medical assistance.

Before starting treatment with Bricanyl inform your doctor if you suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure, heart rhythm disorder, coronary artery disease, diabetes, epilepsy, overactive thyroid, glaucoma or have any drug allergies.

Bricanyl Precautions

Before you buy Bricanyl inhalers online there are some precautions that should be carefully considered, including the following:

  • If you feel that your asthma is not well controlled, do not change the dose of Bricanyl without first speaking to your healthcare provider.
  • Keep your medication away from the reach of small children and pets.
  • Never share your medication with other people at home.
  • To ensure that your asthma is well controlled, visit a healthcare provider on a regular basis.
  • Do not smoke and avoid irritants or allergens as they can make your asthma worse.
  • Adopt the habit of monitoring your blood pressure and heart rate at home while using Bricanyl. Ask your doctor what device to use for measuring your blood pressure.
  • Ask your healthcare provider to teach you how to use a peak flow metre so that you can monitor the progress of your asthma. This device should be used regularly and can tell you if the medication is working or if your asthma is getting worse.
  • Store Bricanyl at room temperature away from moisture and light.
  • If your medication has expired, do not flush it down the toilet or pour it down the drain. Simply take the medication to the pharmacist who will safely discard the medication for you.

Individuals who have seizures, uncontrolled blood pressure, abnormal heart rhythm, diabetes or heart failure should not use Bricanyl.

Can Bricanyl be used during pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding?

Bricanyl is only to be used in pregnancy, if absolutely necessary. Bricanyl can pass into breast milk although short-term results reveal that it does not harm the infant. However, experts suggest that you should not breastfeed if you are taking Bricanyl because the long-term effects of this drug on the infant are not known.

Other Medication Interactions

Bricanyl should not be prescribed to patients who have used an MAO inhibitor in the past 14 days as there is a possibility of drug interaction. MAO inhibitors include isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue injection, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, tranylcypromine, and others. It is best to inform your doctor about all drugs that you use especially if it includes a diuretic and a beta-blocker such as atenolol, bisoprolol, carvedilol, labetalol, metoprolol, nadolol, nebivolol, propranolol, sotalol, and others.
