... all together? Doest there need to be a reduction in the medication before immediately stopping the treatments?
Albuterol and ipratropium is a combination bronchodilator that relaxes muscles in the airways and increases air flow to the lung. It is used to prevent bronchospasm in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who are also using other medicines to control their condition. For best results the medicine should be taken every day as directed regardless of whether you have symptoms or not.
Why do you want to stop treatment? You should not stop your medication unless your doctor has told you to.
If you have been feeling well on your inhalers then they are doing their job and is important you continue to take them. If you are experiencing unpleasant side effects then talk to your doctor.
If you stop your medicine suddenly your symptoms will return and this could have disastrous consequences.
