Intal Side Effects

Wheezing, sore throat or dry throat, and nasal congestion are some of the most common side effects seen with Intal. Reactions that are less common include nosebleeds, drowsiness, and muscle pain. There are also a number of side effects that are more serious and should be reported to a healthcare provider immediately, such as worsening asthma symptoms.

An Introduction to Intal Side Effects

As with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Intal® (cromolyn inhalation); however, not everyone who takes the medicine will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate Intal well. When side effects do occur, in most cases they are minor and either require no treatment or can be easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
 
Intal comes in two forms: the Intal inhaler and Intal nebulizer solution, which is inhaled using a nebulizer (a device that changes liquid medications into fine droplets that are inhaled into the lungs).
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Intal. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
 

Common Side Effects With Intal

Intal has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials in which a group of people taking the drug have side effects documented and compared to another group not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
 
In these studies, the most common Intal side effects included:
 
  • Sore throat or dry throat
  • Bad taste
  • Cough
  • Wheezing
  • Nausea
  • Nasal congestion
  • Sneezing.
