Do Duolin respules contain steroids?

Does duolin respules cipla contains any kinds of steroids? I keep getting dry cough and pain in my chest and I have been recommended by the doctor to inhale duolin. Is it safe? Does it contain steroids ? I feel very weak and do not have the strength to work after I take this. Is this going to shorten my life span?

Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
Duolin respules contains Levosalbutamol sulphate and Ipratropium bromide in Normal Saline Solution.
It is a combination of the beta2-adrenergic bronchodilator (levosalbutamol sulphate) and the anticholinergic bronchodilator (ipratropium bromide).
It is used as a regular aerosol bronchodilator.
Hence, it does not contain any steroid in it. It does not shorten life span.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.
I find this answer helpful
