AHFS Consumer Medication Information;Apr2018, p1
Cromolyn is used to prevent the wheezing, shortness of breath, and troubled breathing caused by asthma. It also is used to prevent breathing difficulties (bronchospasm) during exercise. It works by preventing the release of substances that cause inflammation (swelling) in the air passages of the lungs. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.
