Bricanyl Turbuhaler is used to open up the airways in people with asthma, bronchitis and other breathing problems so that they can breathe more easily. It can also be used before exercise to keep the airways open if you start to wheeze or have trouble breathing each time you exert yourself.
The dose is 500 micrograms when needed up to every 4 to 6 hours. If you have severe breathing problems this may be increased up to 1500 micrograms.
You should not take more than 12 inhalations of 500 micrograms terbutaline (6mg) in any 24 hour period. When you take more than one inhalation at a time wait about 2 or 3 minutes between them.
The dose can range from 2.5 to 5 micrograms (1-2 mL) as required up to every 6 hours. In severe cases, up to 4 mL (10 micrograms) may be nebulised.Children
Children are usually considered to be aged 12 or less, but check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are at all worried about the dose that has been prescribed/recommended for your child.
Children should be 5 or over before they use the Turbuhaler.
The dose is 500 micrograms when needed up to every 4 to 6 hours. If your child has severe breathing problems this may be increased up to 1000 micrograms.
A child should not take more than 8 inhalations of 500 micrograms terbutaline (4mg) in any 24 hour period. When your child takes more than one inhalation at a time get them to wait about 2 or 3 minutes between them.
The dose of Bricanyl nebulising solution is worked out by using the weight of the child. It is 0.2 micrograms (0.08 mL) for every kilogram the child weighs for each dose. Doses are given when needed up to every 6 hours.
Contain terbutaline sulfate 5mg in 2mL as the active ingredient, plus Disodium edetate, Sodium chloride, Hydrochloric acid (E 507 - for pH adjustment) and Purified water
If you find that the usual dose of Bricanyl is not giving as much relief as before, or you are needing to use it more often, please contact your doctor so that your condition can be checked.
