What should I know about cromolyn inhalation solution?

Cromolyn inhalation solution is used to help prevent asthma attacks. You should not use it to treat an asthma attack once one has begun. Instead, you should use a fast-acting inhaler (a rescue inhaler) for these emergencies. You should not abruptly stop using this medication, as this can make your asthma worse. It is important to use cromolyn inhalation solution regularly, as prescribed by your doctor, to get the best benefit. You may need to use this medication for several weeks before you see results. Your doctor may need to adjust your dosage if you are sick, under stress or have had a recent asthma attack. You should never adjust your dosage on your own. You may not be able to take this medication if you have kidney or liver problems. It is approved for children older than two years of age.
