Ipralin HFA Inhaler contains Ipratropium bromide and Salbutamol. Ipratropium bromide is an anticholinergic (parasympatholytic) agent, which, inhibit vagally-mediated reflexes by antagonizing the action of acetylcholine, released from the vagus nerve. Anticholinergics prevent the increase in intracellular concentration of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), which are caused by the interaction of acetylcholine with the muscarinic receptors on bronchial smooth muscle. This opens bronchi and causes bronchodilation. Salbutamol is a selective beta2-adrenoceptor agonist. At therapeutic doses, it acts on the beta2-adrenoceptors of bronchial smooth muscle, with little or no action on the beta1-adrenoceptors of cardiac muscle. Salbutamol provides short acting (4-6 hours) bronchodilatation with a fast onset (within 5 minutes) in reversible airways obstruction.
