Description

Aerocort Rotacap is a short-acting beta-2 agonist that stimulates beta-2 receptors in the lungs. In Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease conditions like asthma where the airways become constricted, Aerocort Rotacap opens the airways, and makes it easier for you to breathe. This medicine is used for the relief of asthma symptoms, but it can also be used to delay delivery in women undergoing premature labour. It is very useful for preventing asthma symptoms due to exercise and other conditions too.  This medicine is not recommended for use in patients less than 12 years of age. This medicine is used only for the maintenance treatment of asthma and COPD and is not useful for treating an acute attack.
