Inhaled Cromolyn Sodium: Its Place in Asthma Management
Abstract:There has been a renewal of interest in inhaled drugs for the treatment of bronchial asthma in this country. Cromolyn sodium has been used as a first fine prophylactic agent in children with mild to moderate asthma with considerable success in our practice for the past several years. This report reviews previous clinical studies comparing cromolyn and theophylline, as well as a point by point pharmacologic comparison of these two agents. Reasons for previous treatment failures, and clinical guidelines to achieve maximum benefit with cromolyn are discussed.
