    You shouldn't take Combivent if you have allergies to peanuts, soybeans, or soya lecithin. Likewise, those with allergies to albuterol or ipratropium, the medications in Combivent, to atropine (Atreza, Sal-Tropine), or to levalbuterol (Xoponex) should not take the medication. Let your doctor know if you have a history of heart disease, diabetes, liver or kidney diseases, epilepsy or other seizure disorders, glaucoma, thyroid disorders, or prostate problems. Any of these conditions may require an adjustment to the standard dosage, or your doctor may want to order tests before prescribing the medication. Even though Combivent employs fluorocarbons, the FDA will maintain "essential use" status of Combivent (ipratropium bromide and albuterol sulfate) Inhalation Aerosol through 2013.
