What is a Levolin Tablet?
A Levolin Tablet is used by asthmatics to relieve their condition and to prevent further asthma attacks.
How do Levolin Tablets work?
The Levolin Tablet contains a bronchodilator: it acts on the airways in the lungs which have been constricted due to an asthma attack. The bronchodilator helps keep the airways open, allowing air to move in and out more easily. This helps to relieve chest tightness, wheezing and coughing.
Do I need a prescription?
Yes, you can obtain this and your Levolin Tablet online from DrEd.
Who usually uses Levolin Tablets?
Anyone who has asthma might be prescribed a Levolin Tablet, so long as it is suitable for them. The Tablet can be used in the specific case of asthma attacks, or as regular treatment.

How do I use a Levolin Tablet?
To use the Tablet, remove the mouthpiece cover. Place the mouthpiece inside your mouth. Do not bite the Tablet. Breathe out. Just after you start to breathe in, press down on the top button to release a “puff”. Breathe in deeply. Remove your finger from the button and remove your mouth from the mouthpiece. Hold your breath, but only for as long as this is comfortable. Wait about half a minute between puffs, if multiple puffs are necessary. Replace the mouthpiece cover right away to avoid dust and other debris entering the Tablet. You should stand up or sit up straight whilst using your Levolin Tablet.

Good product, debatable service, shares private info
I regret giving a less than stellar review of SGP. The meds are reputable but my most recent shipment came from Switzerland, not India and took longer than normal. Plus, at some point SGP has shared or been hacked as I keep getting calls from call center(s) about my "recent order of medications". SGP is the only place I have ever ordered on line & these call centers know exactly what I have ordered. I don't know that I will continue to use SGP even though it saves me a substantial amount.
