Bambec Tablet 10mg is a medicine that is used in conditions associated with breathing difficulties and narrowing of the airways like asthma, emphysema and chronic bronchitis. It helps to prevent attacks of breathlessness by relaxing the air passages of the lungs, keeping airways open and making it easier to breathe.

It contains the active ingredient bambuterol that is broken down into terbutaline once inside the body, which is a type of medicine known as a short-acting beta 2 agonis. The terbutaline works by acting on receptors in the lungs called beta 2 receptors. When these receptors are stimulated, it causes the muscles in the airways to relax and allows them to open.

You must take Bambec Tablet as prescribed by your doctor, as it will not give you fast relief of symptoms once an attack has already started. Instead you will need a fast-acting reliever inhaler for these instances of breathlessness attacks.

Directions for taking Bambec Tablet 10mg:

  • Take Bambec as prescribed by your doctor or healthcare professional in order to notice the best results. Usually they are advised to be taken just before bedtime.

Caution before taking Bambec Tablet 10mg:

  • Do not exceed the dose that your doctor has prescribed you to use.
  • This medicine should not be taken if you have a known sensitivity or allergy to any of the ingredients.
  • The safety of this medicine with pregnancy and breastfeeding is not established. Therefore, like with all other medicines, you must check with your doctor or healthcare professional before taking Bambec Tablet.
  • If this medicine doesn't relieve wheezing or chest tightness as well as usual, or for as long as usual, or you need to use it more often than usual, you should consult your doctor as soon as possible. It may be that your asthma or COPD is getting worse and your doctor might need to give you another medicine. The same applies if you are taking terbutaline by mouth or nebuliser and it doesn't seem to be working as well.
  • It is recommended that people with diabetes should monitor their blood sugar more carefully when starting treatment with this medicine, as it may increase blood sugar levels. If your diabetes treatment becomes less effective, ie your blood sugar levels are harder to control, you should consult your doctor.
  • People with severe asthma should have regular blood tests to monitor the amount of potassium in their blood. This is because low oxygen levels in the blood (hypoxia) and various asthma medicines, including this one, can lower blood potassium levels.

Use with caution with:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart failure
  • Angina
  • Irregular heartbeat (arrhythmias)
  • Moderate to severely decreased kidney function
  • Acute severe asthma
  • Overactive thyroid gland (thyrotoxicosis)

Not to be used in:

  • Heart disease characterised by thickening of the internal heart muscle (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy).
  • Liver cirrhosis.
  • Severely decreased liver function.
  • This medicine is not recommended for children, as there is no information regarding its safety and efficacy in children.
  • Rare hereditary problems of galactose intolerance, the Lapp lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption (Bambec tablets contain lactose).
