Respiratory therapeutics mostly include inhaling medications, although enteral, parenteral, transdermal, or topical routes of administration may be used for some drugs for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, asthma and more. Antimicrobial medications used for the treatment of breathing infections include tobramycin (TOBI), ribavirin (Virazole), pentamidine (Nebupent). IV antibiotics can be used for the treatment of acute cases of infection, such as bacterial pneumonia or bacterial bronchitis. These are used in an intravenous manner for curing the respiratory problems of patients. Corticosteroids such as Budesonide (Pulmicort Respules are designed to reduce swelling in the airways. Bronchodilator medications such as Metaproterenol (Alupent) and ipratropium (Atrovent) are used in order to open and relax the air passages. Short-acting beta agonists such as Levalbuterol HCl (Xopenex) and albuterol sulfate (AccuNeb) are actually a type of bronchodilators. Long-acting beta agonists such as Formoterol (Perforomist) and arformoterol (Brovana). Racemic epinephrine is used for treating croup, severe attacks of asthma and other emergency respiratory cases. Mucolytics such as Dornase alfa (Pulmozyme) and acetylcysteine (Mucomyst) are used for thinning, loosening and clearing out secretions of mucus from lungs. Combination drugs such as Albuterol (DuoNeb) / ipratropium are useful for alleviating respiratory symptoms.
