Intal Inhaler (Cromolyn Sodium) is used to prevent the symptoms of asthma. It works by reducing inflammation of the lungs when used regularly. It may also be used to avoid bronchospasm just before exposure to conditions or substances that would ordinarily trigger it. This medication will not stop a bronchospasm attack that has already begun. It may be used alone or with other asthma medications (like bronchodilators or corticosteroids). The usual recommended start dose is 5mg/112 inhalations.
The brand Intal Inhaler is manufactured by Sanofi and comes from the United Kingdom and New Zealand. It may come from other international countries. Intal Inhaler is available in a 5mg/112 inhalable dosage.
