Non-selective muscarinic antagonist to control asthma
Relaxes bronchial smooth muscle, dialating bronchioles as a short acting B-2 agonist
Increases cAMP by inhibiting phosphodiesterase. Results in sympathomimetic bronchodialation (like all symp.mim. Causes nausea, headache, low BP, arrythmia, CNS tox)
This lung condition is often treated with a combination of Albuterol and Atropine/Ipratropium for combined effect
Used only in conjuntion with steroids, provides the benefits of Albuterol over a 12 hour period (ie increasing cAMP levels)
This bitter tasting anti-inflammatory inhibits mast cells, eosinophils and cough
5-Lipoxygenase inhibitor shuts down the arachadonic acid pathway leading to creation of Leukotrienes. Known liver toxicity.
True/False: Aspirin and other COX pathway arachadonate inhibitors can help patients with airway disease
Patients with step 1 asthma (less than monthly attacks) should be given this class of treatment
Anti-IgE monoclonal antibody for long term asthma control. Can cause swelling/allergies, cardiotoxicity
QT prolongation is a concern with this class of potentially cardiotoxic drugs. They should not be mixed with K-wasting diuretics (as the drugs sequester K), MAOIs or Saquinavir
Non-specific adrenergic agonist that can be used for bronchodilation
Yes/No: COPD responds wells to Corticosteroid therapy
This drug class serves to increase transcritional activity of B2 receptors, thus combating LABA autoregulatory desensitization
Leukotrienes bring on asthma symptoms, this drug blocks LT receptors, with the side effects of GI disturbance and increased infections
Weight gain (buffalo hump), muscle weakness, thin skin, hair abnormalities, high BP and skin changes associated with glucocorticoid use
EXTRA CREDIT: This infused drug is used as a repiratory stimulant post-surgery on in acute COPD attacks. Works by acitivating carotid bodies.

EMB, INH or RIF: Side effect of optic neuritis, vision loss, hyperuricemia
This alternative to rifampin can be given at a lower dose frequency, increasing compliance
This Tb drug inhibits mycolic acid synthesis, thus is Cidal only for rapidly dividing cells. Drug is cleared by acetylation and urination
