La présente fiche de renseignements explique comment agit l'ipratropium, comment l'administrer, et quels sont les effets secondaires ou les problèmes que votre enfant pourrait éprouver pendant qu'il prend ce médicament. </p><h2>Comment administrer ce médicament à votre enfant</h2> <p>Suivez les instructions suivantes pour donner de l'ipratropium à votre enfant : </p> <ul><li>Administrez l'ipratropium exactement comme le médecin ou le pharmacien vous a dit de le faire. </li> <li>Consultez votre médecin ou votre pharmacien avant de modifier la quantité d'ipratropium que prend votre enfant. Cessez l'ipratropium seulement si le médecin de votre enfant ou le pharmacien vous a dit de le faire. </li> <li>Ne donnez jamais que de l'ipratropium à votre enfant pour soulager les signaux précurseurs d'une crise d'asthme et les signaux d'une crise d'asthme imminente ou pour prévenir l'apparition de tels signaux. Il faut toujours utiliser l'ipratropium avec d'autres médicaments contre l'asthme. </li> <li>Demandez à votre enfant d'inhaler l'ipratropium par la bouche. Si vous n'êtes pas certain de la façon d'administrer l'ipratropium, demandez à votre pharmacien de vous montrer comment le faire. L'infirmière de la clinique d'asthme peut vous montrer comment donner de l'ipratropium à votre enfant. </li> <li>Assurez-vous que votre enfant utilise son ipratropium avant de prendre un médicament de prévention, comme la béclométhasone, si votre enfant utilise un tel médicament. Si votre enfant utilise un nébuliseur pour prendre l'ipratropium, il devrait prendre l'ipratropium en même temps que le médicament de prévention. </li> <li>L'ipratropium dilate les voies respiratoires, ce qui permet au médicament de prévention d'entrer dans les poumons de votre enfant. Après avoir donné l'ipratropium à votre enfant, attendez 5 minutes avant de lui donner le médicament de prévention afin que ses voies respiratoires soient assez dilatées pour qu'il profite pleinement des bienfaits du médicament. </li> <li>Donnez l'ipratropium avec l'autre médicament de soulagement, comme le salbutamol, et avec le médicament de prévention, si votre enfant utilise un nébuliseur pour prendre l'ipratropium. Mélangez l'ipratropium avec l'autre médicament de soulagement et le médicament de prévention dans la tasse du nébuliseur. </li> <li>Après une dose d'ipratropium, votre enfant devrait se rincer la bouche avec de l'eau, ce qui aide à réduire les effets secondaires. Si votre enfant est trop jeune pour se rincer la bouche, donnez lui de l'eau ou du jus à boire après chaque dose d'ipratropium. </li> <li>Assurez-vous d'avoir des réserves suffisantes d'ipratropium pour les fins de semaine et les vacances. </li></ul><h2>Que faire si votre enfant manque une dose?</h2> <p>Si votre enfant manque une dose d'ipratropium, faites ce qui suit :</p> <ul><li>Donnez-lui la dose manquée dès que vous y pensez. </li> <li>Sautez la dose manquée s'il est presque l'heure de la prochaine dose. </li> <li>Donnez-lui la prochaine dose à l'heure régulière. </li></ul><h2>Quels sont les effets secondaires possibles de ce médicament?</h2> <p>Votre enfant pourrait éprouver certains des effets secondaires suivants pendant qu'il prend de l'ipratropium. Habituellement, il n'est pas nécessaire de consulter un médecin à ce sujet. Ces effets secondaires pourraient se dissiper au fur et à mesure que le corps de votre enfant s'habitue à l'ipratropium. </p> <p>Consultez le médecin de votre enfant si ce dernier affiche un ou plusieurs des effets secondaires suivants, s'ils ne se dissipent pas ou s'ils le dérangent : </p> <ul><li>Bouche ou gorge sèche</li> <li>Toux</li> <li>Maux d'estomac ou vomissements </li> <li>Étourdissements</li> <li>Mauvais goût dans la bouche</li> <li>Maux de tête </li> <li>Nervosité </li> <li>Tremblements </li> <li>Toute modification de son rythme cardiaque, comme une accélération, un ralentissement ou un rythme cardiaque irrégulier </li></ul> <p>Téléphonez à votre médecin dès que possible, pendant les heures de bureau, si votre enfant affiche un ou plusieurs des effets secondaires suivants :</p> <ul><li>Vision embrouillée </li> <li>Fatigue ou faiblesse inhabituelle </li> <li>Difficulté à uriner</li></ul> <h3>La plupart des effets secondaires suivants ne sont pas courants et pourraient laisser présager un problème grave. Téléphonez immédiatement au médecin de votre enfant ou rendez-vous à la salle d'urgence avec votre enfant si ce dernier affiche un ou plusieurs des signes suivants : </h3> <ul><li>Oppression thoracique, respiration sifflante ou difficulté à respirer qu'aucun de ses médicaments ne permet à soulager</li> <li>Éruption cutanée ou urticaire, soit des boutons rouges qui démangent </li> <li>Plaies dans la bouche ou sur les lèvres </li> <li>Enflure de la langue ou des lèvres</li> <li>Difficulté à avaler </li> <li>Douleur aiguë dans l'œil </li></ul><h2>Autres renseignements importants au sujet de ce médicament</h2><ul><li>Avisez le médecin de votre enfant et le pharmacien si votre enfant a déjà fait une réaction inhabituelle ou allergique à l'ipratropium ou à tout autre médicament. </li><li>Consultez le médecin de votre enfant ou le pharmacien avant de donner tout autre médicament à votre enfant.</li><li>Conservez l'ipratropium à température ambiante dans un endroit sec, frais et à l'abri du soleil.</li><li>Si l'ipratropium de votre enfant vient sous forme de pompe :</li><ul><li>Ne percez pas des trous dans la partie métallique de la pompe. </li><li>Ne brûlez pas la pompe. </li><li>Tenez-la loin des sources de chaleur. </li></ul><li>Si votre enfant prend de l'ipratropium au moyen d'un nébuliseur, jetez tout médicament destiné au nébuliseur qui est ouvert depuis plus de 12 heures. </li><li>Ne conservez pas les médicaments périmés. Demandez à votre pharmacien quelle est la meilleure façon de disposer des médicaments périmés ou excédentaires. </li><li>Conservez les médicaments hors de la vue et de la portée de votre enfant.<span id="ms-rterangecursor-start" aria-hidden="true"></span><span id="ms-rterangecursor-end" aria-hidden="true"></span><br></li></ul>
