What is Intal?
Intal is an anti-inflammatory medication that prevents the body from producing histamine and causing allergic reactions. It can be used to treat asthma symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath and trouble breathing caused by allergic reactions to allergens like dust mites, animal fur and insect bites. It can also be used to prevent bronchospasm caused by exercise, dry, cold or pollutants in the air and exposure to certain chemicals.

How is Intal used?
Intal capsules must be taken with the special Intal Spin Haler. It is usually inhaled orally 4 times daily to treat asthma symptoms. For preventative treatment against breathing problems caused by exercise it should be administered 10 to 15 minutes prior to exercising. Dosage depends on patientís usage and reaction to the medication, contact a doctor for correct dosage. To use the inhaler, shake the inhaler, remove cap and place mouth piece in mouth. Close lips around the mouth piece, tilt head back, pump the inhaler and hold breath for several seconds before exhaling.

Adverse effects
Patients using Intal may encounter side effects such as:

  • Nosebleed
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Headache
  • Unpleasant taste in mouth
  • Cough
  • Throat irritation

Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:

  • Chest tightness
  • Wheezing

It is a long term control and preventative treatment for asthma and should not be used in an asthma attack. For an asthma attack use a fast acting asthma medication.
