Bricanyl Turbohaler contains the active ingredient terbutaline, which belongs to a group of medicines known as short-acting beta 2 agonists. It works by acting on beta 2 receptors found in the lungs, as stimulating these receptors causes the muscles in the airways to relax, allowing them to open. This is why this particular ingredient is used in conditions where there is a narrowing of the airways, like asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (emphysema or chronic bronchitis). As these conditions make it particularly difficult to get air in and out of the lungs, opening the airways will help to make it easier to breathe.

Directions for taking Bricanyl Turbohaler:

  • You should follow the directions given to you by your doctor or healthcare professional when taking Bricanyl Turbohaler. They will inform you of how much and how often to take this medication.

Caution before taking Bricanyl Turbohaler:

  • Do not exceed the dose of terbutaline that your doctor has prescribed you to use.
  • If your inhaler doesn't relieve wheezing or chest tightness as well as usual, or for as long as usual (at least three hours), 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.
  • Inhalers may cause an unexpected increase in wheezing (paradoxical bronchospasm) straight after using them. If this happens, stop using the inhaler immediately and consult your doctor. The medicine should be stopped and an alternative treatment found.
  • 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.
  • It is important that asthma is well controlled in pregnant women because severe asthma attacks can be dangerous to the pregnancy. Wherever possible, asthma medications should be taken by inhaler, as this minimises the amount of medicine that enters the bloodstream and crosses the placenta.

Use with caution in:

  • Heart disease
  • Irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias)
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism)
  • Diabetes

Not to be used in:

  • People with known sensitivity or allergy to any ingredient
