Tulobuterol tapes 1 mg from Japan for children (asthma and bronchitis)
What are Tulobuterol tapes 1 mg for children asthma and bronchitis?
Tulobuterol tape is an external medication designed to ease the symptoms associated with asthma and chronic bronchitis. Its mode of action involves activating the body's b2 receptors, resulting in a gentle and swift relaxation of the bronchial smooth muscles. Consequently, it effectively alleviates respiratory distress caused by obstructive airway conditions like bronchial asthma, acute bronchitis, chronic bronchitis, or emphysema.
Thanks to the impressive skin-penetrating abilities of its active ingredient, Tulobuterol tape can be externally applied. This approach minimizes the risk of gastrointestinal side effects while maintaining the same level of effectiveness as oral medications. This versatile treatment is appropriate for both adults and children aged 6 months and above, and it comes with precise dosage recommendations, especially crucial for pediatric patients.
