Tulobuterol 2 mg from Japan (asthma, bronchitis)
What are Tulobuterol tapes 2 mg for asthma and bronchitis?
Tulobuterol tape is an external application type medicine for the treatment of symptoms of asthma and chronic bronchitis. It works by stimulating the body's b2 receptors to cause a rapid and mild expansion in the smooth muscles of the bronchi. As the result, Tulobuterol tape effectively relieves respiratory distress caused by airway obstructive disorder in patients with bronchial asthma, acute bronchitis, chronic bronchitis or emphysema.
Due to the high ability of the active principle to penetrate through skin, the outward application of the tape is possible. This ensures the minimal risk of gastrointestinal side effects, while maintaining the same efficacy as the oral medication. Tulobuterol tape can be used for adults and children of 6 months old or more, though for pediatric patients the exact dosage should be strictly followed.
