Inhaled Albuterol v Pill?
I have access to Albuterol inhalers. It is 100mcg per dose. I know that most of the Albuterol studies we refer to for fat loss/performance are of a systematic nature and deal with the oral form. Still, wouldnt the fat loss effects be about the same as long as you inhaled an equivalent dose?
Has anyone used an increased dose of Albuterol inhaler for fat loss? If so whats an ideal dose. 100-200mcg is recommended for an adult for normal asthma use. Surely you wouldnt try to inhale equal to 3-4mg as you would ingest with an oral form. Taking 10-16mg via inhaler would require a lot of inhalers too....
This is an interesting question, I've been reading about Albuterol quite a bit lately. I'm interested to hear the answer to this as well, I'll let you know if I come across anything.
I cant believe I'm not getting any feedback on this one. Whats the deal?
I also wish someone who is experienced with the two could answer this.
From what I've been able to gather reading, it sounds to me like the Inhaler is obviously better for Asthma treatment, but the pill form is better for weight-loss. It has a longer half-life than the inhaler, and absorption into blood vessels creates a better stimulating effects than inhaling. When inhaling, it doesn't go through the same process so it has a less stimulating effect, and more of a bronchodilating effect. However, because the pill has to pass through so much of your body, it gets diluted quite a bit. Therefore, if you took the same amount of the drug, the inhaler would have much more profound effects.
I wonder what dose via inhaler would be somewhat equivalent to to the normal oral dosage scheme.
Bump for feedback PLEASE.
i do not believe there IS a sose with the inhaler that would be the equivalent. The reason that pills are not used instead of inhalers is becasue they have systemic affects not local. what you want in the case of asthma is a local effect. conversely studies show that ihalers produce no or very low systemic effects. go with the pills.
