    Hi, just wondering if anyone knows if you can oral cromoglycate in Australia. It's known as Gastrocrom in the US, and is the ingredient in Intal inhalers for asthma. Cheers :)

    What dosage is needed to treat mast cells?
    The dr gave me the inhaler but I don't think it will be strong enough

    200mg 30mins before meals 4 x per day is the standard dose. I don't think an inhaler will affect/treat anything outside the lungs, but you'd need to research that to be sure.
