What Is Aarane?

Aarane is a form of medication used to relieve inflammation. It is a mast cell stabilizer used to control certain allergic disorders. This prevents the mast cells from producing substances that cause inflammation, such as histamine. Because of this, it is used to manage several conditions like allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, and allergy-induced asthma attacks.

Aarane Brand Names

The more well-known names for Aarane are sodium cromoglycate and cromolyn sodium, which are commonly used to treat allergic rhinitis. This is available in the form of a nasal spray under brand names like Rynacrom and Nasalcrom. Asthma patients, who also use the medication in nasal spray form, can purchase the medicine under the brand Intal. Those with allergic madras eye or allergic conjunctivitis are prescribed to use Crolom, Opticrom, or Optrex. Aarane is also effective in treating symptoms of various food allergies. Those who have digestive diseases such as colitis ulcerosa, a form of inflammatory bowel disease, and mastocytosis can be prescribed to use Gastrocrom. Allergic symptoms such as chronic migraines are also treatable.

Aarane Dosage And Administration

The dosage of the medication will depend largely on the condition to be treated as well as the age of the patient. Children suffering from food allergies are usually give 100 mg of the medicine. However, adults need 200 mg tablets to be taken four times a day in order for the medicine to take effect. Depending on the patient’s response to the medication, the doctor may prescribe that the dosage be increased if there is no positive effect after two weeks.

Aarane as nasal spray is not the only form available to patients with asthma. They may also use the medicine in its dry powder form. At the prescription of a doctor, an asthmatic patient may take a 20 mg dosage four times daily. However, if the aerosol form is preferred, the dosage is decreased to 10 mg and taken four times a day. Again, the doctor should be informed if the patient does not respond to the treatment as quickly as expected. The dosage can be increased up to eight times a day in order to improve the patient’s condition, and then lowered to 5 mg at four times a day when there are marked signs of improvement.

Mastocytis patients, which can range from children to adults, may be prescribed a 20 mg amount at four times a day. Those with allergic conjunctivitis can take the medicine in the form of eye drops, administering two drops of a 4% solution spray at four times daily.

Aarane Side Effects

The use of Aarane is not entirely without side effects. If not properly monitored, adverse effects may range from an unpleasant taste in the mouth to nausea, headache, pain and swelling in the joints, and skin rashes. Patients with asthma must also be cautious in order not to aggravate the condition of their existing allergies.

Some of these come in the form of severe asthma attacks and pulmonary infiltrates. Wheezing, nasal congestion, and throat irritation may also result from inhaling the dry powder form of the medication. Those with conjunctivitis may experience stinging and burning sensation in the eyes when the drops are applied.

In cases where patients develop an allergic reaction to the medication—such as rashes, swelling, itching, nausea, and difficulty in breathing—it is strictly advised that it is brought to the attention of the physician.

Aarane Interactions With Other Drugs

As with other kinds of medication, it is important that patients inform their doctor if they are taking other medication, regardless if these are prescription or non-prescription drugs. This is to avoid the interference of adverse interactions the medicines may have when taken simultaneously. Also, the patient must strictly adhere to the dosage prescribed by the physician and not change the amount taken in without consultation.

Individuals are advised to discuss the benefits as well as the potential risks of taking Aarane before administration. Although the chances are low, Aarane can have an adverse effect on pregnant women and it is advisable that women inform their doctors regarding this issue. People with experiencing pyrexia, sinus pain, nasal fluid discharge, and wheezing should also consult a physician before using Aarane if intended for self-treatment to avoid aggravating any existing medical conditions.
