Asthma Overview

Asthma is a common long term inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs.[3] It is characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm.[10] Symptoms include episodes of wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.[2] These episodes may occur a few times a day or a few times per week.

If you need me to locate a drug or it's ingredients, I will need more informaiton as well.

Theophylline discontinued

I have been theophylline er is being discontinued. Is this true? Have taken for years for asthma. ## Hello, Terri! How are you? I've not found anything about it being discontinued. Where you told that by a pharmacist or did it come from some other source? There were a couple that were discontinued back in 2003, due to the fact that it's rarely prescribed, anymore. But I've not read anything in my various resources that the current one available is being discontinued. Though, a doctor or pharmacist may, admittedly, have more updated information than I do. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and dry mouth. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## From what I've been told, all strengths of Theophylline is on back order due to ...

Are we sure that bronkaid tablets haven't been taken off the market in some areas? I went to 3 different drug stores today, in Columbus County, North Carolina, to purchase, and there was an empty shelf where they once were. Not even the pharmacists could say whether they had been discontinued. ## Bronkaid is not being carried in drug stores in Columbia city indiana ## Thanks for your kind response. ## Bronkaid was discontinued as of 12/31/11 due to a phase out of these types of medications. Have you tried consulting your doctor about using an alternative medication? ## Actually, we have not. The medicines are for my wife, who has had bouts with asthma her entire life. It seems that once we find something that works, it is discontinued. The physicians advice, I suppose, is always goo...

Bought in Mexico, so in spanish ambophyllina must be. a small white pill with a line on one side down the middle. ## I use Ambophyllina. It is prescribed to me by a Doctor in Mexacali, Mexico.

Duavent Inhaler
3 Replies RSS
Who should use this medicine, dosage and how long? ## Hi Fran, This inhaler is used for the management of reversible bronchospasm associated with obstructive airway diseases (eg, bronchial asthma). It is also prescribed for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on a regular inhaled bronchodilator who continue to have evidence of bronchospasm and who require a second bronchodilator. Dosage information and length of treatment is indicated to be provided by your doctor or pharmacist on a case by case basis. NOTE: I was able to locate dosage info for the liquid version of this medication, but I would think liquid has completely different administration instructions than an inhaler. I hope this info helps! ## When will this inhaler be available again in the market? Its b...

I've lost my voice from using Symbacort for one month. How long will it take to get my voice back after discontinuing the Symbacort? ## Hello, Kathy! How are you doing? I am sorry about the problem that you've experienced. It may take a week or two, for things to return to normal and for your voice to be back. Have you informed your doctor? You'll likely need to try a different medication. ## I'm so glad to have found this page. I'm a professor with mild asthma and my doc gave me symbicort. I lost my voice and/or had difficulty getting through a class without losing it. When I told my doc, he laughed and said that it wasn't a side effect. I also have had terrible muscle cramps and irritated stuffy nose. So basically although the symbicort helps with my exercise i...
