Xopenex - Overview
Xopenex is a medication used in treating bronchospasm in some people with asthma. People who need a Xopenex prescription can connect with a medical provider using Push Health who can prescribe Xopenex medication, including generic Xopenex HFA / Xopenex inhaler, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Xopenex Used For?
Xopenex prescription medication contains the active ingredient levalbuterol hydrochloride (HCl). Xopenex HFA is a selective structural version of the drug albuterol (ProAir, Proventil, Ventolin). Xopenex acts on special receptors found in the smooth muscle of airways known as beta2-adrenergic receptors. Activation of these receptors leads to an increase in a compound known as cyclic AMP which ultimately leads to relaxation of bronchial smooth muscle all the way to the terminal bronchioles. Xopenex inhaler medication may also lead to blunting of mast cell chemical release. Like similar medications, Xopenex activation of these receptors can lead to stimulation of parts of the cardiovascular system, leading to an increased heart rate and blood pressure. Nonetheless, the Xopenex inhaler is indicated for the treatment or prevention of bronchospasm in some adult and pediatric patients with asthma.
Xopenex - Dosage and Coupon
Xopenex solution itself is clear and colorless and does not contain preservatives. Xopenex is available in vials containing unit doses with levalbuterol HCl 0.36 mg, levalbuterol HCl 0.63 mg, and levalbuterol HCl 1.25 mg. Xopenex does not need to be diluted before being nebulized for administration. Often, a starting dosage of Xopenex inhalation solution in adults is levalbuterol 0.63 mg administered by nebulization every 6-8 hours. The Xopenex medication dose can also be titrated to the patient according to specific patient needs and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Xopenex is moderately affordable in the United States, costing under $40 for one Xopenex inhaler containing 15 grams of 45 mcg levalbuterol free base. Xopenex coupons can sometimes be found through the manufacturer or online. Some insurance plans may also help with costs associated with a Xopenex prescription.
Can I Buy Xopenex Online?
One cannot just buy Xopenex online as it is a prescription medication and first requires a consultation to be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. With this prescription requirement, Xopenex OTC is not available in the US. People who need a Xopenex prescription, however, can connect with a medical provider using Push Health who can prescribe Xopenex HFA medication such as the Xopenex inhaler, when appropriate to do so.
Xopenex - Side Effects
Prior to using Xopenex prescription medication, concerns and questions about side effects should be discussed with one's medical provider and pharmacist. Side effects that can result from Xopenex HFA use include dizziness, palpitations, tremor, anxiety, nausea, cough and back pain. Xopenex and alcohol should not be used concomitantly. People with a known hypersensitivity to the Xopenex inhaler should not use this medication. Xopenex can also produce significant cardiovascular effects and paradoxical bronchospasm and people using Xopenex should be monitored closely when using Xopenex medication.
