What is nedocromil inhalation (Tilade)?
Nedocromil is an anti-inflammatory medication. It works by preventing the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.
Nedocromil inhalation is used to prevent asthma attacks and other conditions involving inflammation of the lung tissues.
Nedocromil may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
What are the possible side effects of nedocromil inhalation (Tilade)?
Serious side effects from nedocromil inhalation are not likely to occur. Seek emergency medical attention if you experience an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of your throat; swelling of your lips, tongue, or face; or hives).
Other, less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Continue to use nedocromil inhalation and talk to your doctor if you experience

What is the most important information I should know about nedocromil inhalation (Tilade)?
Nedocromil inhalation will not stop an asthma attack that has already started. It is used to prevent attacks.
Do not use more of this medication than is prescribed for you. Too much may cause serious side effects.
Use nedocromil inhalation on a regular basis for best results. It may be one week or longer before you obtain the maximum benefit of this medication.
It is very important that you use your nedocromil inhaler properly, so that the medicine gets into your lungs. Your doctor may want you to use a spacer with your inhaler. Talk to your doctor about proper inhaler use.
Seek medical attention if you notice that you require more than your usual or more than the maximum amount of an asthma medication in a 24-hour period. An increased need for medication could be an early sign of a serious asthma attack.
