Patient :I suffer from asthma and have been prescribed an albuterol sulfate syrup to be used with a nebulizer I was wondering if I could put that medication into a vapor pen? would it have the same effects? are there any risls?
Thank you for your question. No, albuterol syrup can only be taken with the use of nebulizer. Vapor pens are not approved devices for the safe delivery of your medication to treat your asthma. Please be guided accordingly.
