More about Combivent Respimat and if it is right for your client

Yesterday some data about Combivent Respimat inhalers was posted along with some safety data. There is more safety data that you should really be aware of, such as the fact that this type of inhaler, although supposed to fix specific issues, could potentially increase eye pressure which could cause or worsen some types of glaucoma. Thus your client must be very careful to keep the fumes away from their eyes while spraying it into their mouth. Perhaps a spacer would be the answer to this issue.
This medication could cause difficulty with urination. If your clients experience either eye or urinary issues, they must stop taking Combivent Respimat and you need to get in touch with their physician immediately!
Some slightly annoying, yet less dangerous issues include dizziness and blurred vision. Care must be taken if your client still drives, cooks for themselves or uses various other types of machinery.
Although your clients may be tempted to use the inhaler whenever they feel necessary, Combivent Respimat should never be used more often than their doctor has recommended. Deaths have been reported when people have used various other inhalers too much for their symptoms. You want to prevent this at all costs to keep your client safe and sound and to show them that you believe that With Age Comes Respect.
