Consider Xopenex HFA® (levalbuterol tartrate) as an option for your child's rescue asthma medicine.
Join parents who worked with their healthcare provider to determine the rescue medicine that’s right for their child’s asthma.
Xopenex (pronounced zo-pen-eks) HFA® (levalbuterol tartrate) is a handheld inhaler that is sometimes called a "puffer." It is a convenient treatment option for patients four years and older that has been shown to provide quick relief from asthma symptoms when it's inconvenient to use a nebulizer or who prefer taking medicine through an inhaler. XOPENEX HFA is used as a quick-relief "reliever" medicine. It is taken when needed to relieve asthma symptoms. Asthma symptoms may include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and shortness of breath.
XOPENEX HFA should be taken only when asthma symptoms or an asthma attack occurs, but not more often than directed by your child's healthcare provider. The most common adverse events in patients 4 - 11 years old were vomiting, accidental injury, pharyngitis, and bronchitis. See Important Safety Information below.
Your child's asthma may change over time, so it's important to schedule regular visits with your child's healthcare provider to assess the efficacy of a current treatment or evaluate the need for a revised treatment plan.
Talk to your child's healthcare provider about XOPENEX HFA for your child's asthma treatment plan.
