What does Atrovent do?

Unlike other preventer inhalers, Atrovent doesn't contain steroids but instead contains ipratropium, which affects receptors in the lungs known as muscarinic receptors. These receptors can react to a chemical stimulant acetychloine and causes constriction in airways which results in difficulty breathing. Atrovent prevents this reaction from happening thus preventing narrowing of airways in patients with asthma.

Who is this treatment suitable for?

Most patients can use it safely but it's not recommended if you are allergic to the active ingredient or treatments with similar properties. It is also strictly not advisable to use this medication if you are breastfeeding or pregnant.

Patients should ensure that they tell their doctor if they have issues passing urine, prostate problems, cystic fibrosis or glaucoma as they may have an influence on how you should use this medication.

How do you use this inhaler?

The general recommendation for this inhaler is one or two puffs three to four times a day, although patients with more severe asthma may have to use doses that are higher. It's important that you use this treatment only as your doctor prescribed it and speak to them if you feel that you require a dose that is higher or lower.

Atrovent is an aerosol inhaler, which means that it comes with a canister and a mouthpiece. It can also be used with a spacer if you find it difficult using a puffer inhaler. You take the medication by pressing down on the canister as you inhale.

When using a new inhaler for the first time you should squeeze two puffs away from your mouth before you inhale. You should also wash your inhaler once a week to ensure that you are using it hygienically and no blockages occur.

What are the side effects?

This inhaler isn't likely to cause side effects and if they do occur they are usually mild. The most commonly reported effects are headaches, diarrhoea, a dry mouth, upset stomach or throat irritation.

Should these side effects become persistent or you start to experience anything more serious, you should seek medical help straight away.

Buying Atrovent online

We understand that it's not always convenient to get a repeat prescription from your doctor, which is why we offer patients the facility to get a repeat prescription and have their treatment delivered directly to their door. Simply complete the online consultation form which will then be checked by one of our doctors, who will pass a prescription to our pharmacy if they feel that it is in your best interest to use this medication. All orders are dispatched for free next day delivery. We provide a variety of medication for Asthma. If you need an alternative medication see the other Asthma treatments for alternatives.

What is included in the online consultation?

Our consultations include general questions about your health (e.g. blood pressure levels, current and past conditions), as well as specific questions related to your selected treatment. We will also request relevant personal information to complete payment and delivery.

All questions are necessary, and your answers and details will not be shared with any third-parties. Only our doctors have access to your medical information.

Will a doctor review my consultation?

It is a legal and medical requirement that a doctor first reviews all completed consultations. We have a team of in-house doctors and specialists who will ensure your selected treatment is safe for your use. All information is stored securely and confidentially.

Please note, we do not guarantee that our doctors will approve treatment.

What happens after I submit my order?

Your consultation will be sent directly to our medical team, where it will be reviewed by one of our doctors.

If your chosen treatment is deemed suitable for your use, they will issue a prescription. Your prescription is then forwarded to our pharmacy, where your medication will be dispensed and dispatched for courier delivery.

Is the price all-inclusive?

Yes. All 121doc orders include a medical consultation, a prescription and next-day delivery. There are no additional costs. We believe in providing a safe and easy-to-use service.

Can I place more than one order at a time?

Yes. However, certain medications may negatively interact with each other. Our doctors may not approve your order on this basis.

You can place multiple items in one basket, and complete a consultation for all.

If you wish to place a second order for a different medication, you will have to complete a separate consultation.

What are my delivery options?

We offer several delivery options:

  • Next-day delivery
  • UPS Access Point - convenient parcel drop-off and collection near your home or work address
  • Nominated-day delivery - choose the most convenient day for delivery

All these options can be tracked and require a signature on delivery. If you are not available, a friend or relative can sign in your place.

None of these options will incur an additional charge.

Is it safe to buy prescription medication online?

To ensure you are purchasing from a reputable company, you should look to see their country’s regulatory bodies verify them.

In the UK, this is the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Certificates can be viewed here.

How do I know which treatment is best for me?

Some treatments also offer the 'Advise Me' function. You will be asked questions about your lifestyle and needs, plus medical questions. You will then be presented with the advice of our doctors.

Is this service discreet?

Our patients’ privacy is of utmost importance. All your medical information is securely stored and only viewed by our doctors. We do not share your details with third-parties. We are also regularly inspected by various UK regulatory agencies, such as the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).

All orders will only show on invoices, bank statements, etc. as ‘HHC Ltd’.
