nedocromil inhalation - oral, Tilade
GENERIC NAME: NEDOCROMIL INHALATION - ORAL (neh-DOCK-row-mill)
BRAND NAME(S): Tilade
USES: Nedocromil is used alone or with other medications to prevent symptoms (wheezing, cough, and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. It is used in patients who have breathing symptoms at least twice weekly (mild to moderate persistent asthma). It is also used to prevent wheezing and shortness of breath caused by exercise, cold/dry/polluted air, or allergens such as pollen. Nedocromil works by preventing the release of certain natural substances (e.g., histamines, leukotrienes) that may cause swelling of the airways and breathing problems.This medication must be taken regularly to be effective. It does not work immediately and should not be used to relieve sudden asthma attacks. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler as prescribed.
