Can You Get a Xopenex Prescription Online?

By law, you must speak to a doctor before getting any prescription medication.

That means you can’t just buy Xoponex off a website and have it shipped to your house (if you find a website like that operating out of Canada or Mexico, they are skirting the law and should not be trusted).

However, you can have an online appointment with a doctor who can then electronically send a prescription for Xoponex to your preferred pharmacy. 

At PlushCare we employ doctors from the top 50 U.S. medical schools to ensure you’re getting the best care possible. Our doctors have an average of 15 years experience.

What Is Xopenex Used for?

Xopenex is used to treat and prevent bronchospasm in people with asthma and other lung diseases. It is available as both a fast-acting inhaler and a nebulizer solution for regular use. 

Xopenex Side Effects and Precautions

Tell your doctor if you are allergic to levalbuterol, similar bronchodilators (like albuterol, salmeterol, or metaproterenol), or sympathomimetic drugs (like epinephrine or pseudoephedrine). 

Tell your doctor your medical history, especially if you have any of the following:

Always tell your doctor about all the medications you take, including supplements and over the counter medications.

Especially tell your doctor if you take any of the following:

  • Albuterol
  • Amineptine
  • Amitriptyline
  • Amitriptylinoxide
  • Amoxapine
  • Butriptyline
  • Clomipramine
  • Desipramine
  • Dibenzepin
  • Dothiepin
  • Doxepin
  • Epinephrine
  • Fenoterol
  • Hexoprenaline
  • Imipramine
  • Iprindole
  • Lofepramine
  • Melitracen
  • Methacholine
  • Nortriptyline
  • Opipramol
  • Propizepine
  • Protriptyline
  • Tianeptine
  • Trimipramine
  • Tulobuterol

Side effects range from mild to serious and may include:

  • Nervousness
  • Headache
  • Shaking (tremor)
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Dizziness
  • Runny nose
  • Diarrhea
  • Upset stomach
  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth
  • Fast heartbeat
  • Lightheadedness
  • Chest pain or tightness
  • Trouble breathing
  • Cough
  • Confusion
  • Anxiety

Xopenex Dosage

Always follow your doctor’s dosage instructions, as they may vary from these.

Typical dosages for the inhalation aerosol form are two puffs every 4 to 6 hours for adults and children 4 years of age and older.

The usual dosage of the nebulizer form of this medication for adults and children over the age of 12 is 0.63 milligrams (mg) in the nebulizer 3 times a day, every 6 to 8 hours.

Is Xopenex the Same as Albuterol?

Xopenex (levalbuterol) is not the same as albuterol, but it’s easy to understand the confusion since the two medications are closely related.

Levalbuterol contains the active form of albuterol, known as R-albuterol, while albuterol contains a 50:50 mixture of R-albuterol and inactive S-albuterol. Since Xopenex only contains the active form of albuterol, it may be more effective with fewer side effects than albuterol.

Is Xopenex a Steroid?

No, Xopenex is not a steroid. It is a bronchodilator (beta-2 receptor agonist) that works by opening breathing passages to make breathing easier.

Is Xopenex a Rescue Inhaler?

Xopenex is available as a rescue inhaler or as a solution for a nebulizer.  

Does Albuterol or Xopenex Work Better?

Since Xopenex contains only the active form of albuterol, it may work better than regular albuterol. However, everybody is different and will react to each medication in unique ways. Ask your doctor which medication is better for you.

How Many Times a Day Can You Use Xopenex Inhaler?

You typically take two puffs from the Xopenex inhaler two to four times per day. If you think you may need a rescue inhaler more often than that, talk to your doctor about ways to help reduce your reliance on a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. You may benefit from a long-acting medication.

    Our doctors operate in all 50 states and same day appointments are available every 15 minutes.
